    One of the ram DIMMS could be defective. Often that will be the case if you're experiencing slowdowns. Try taking one of the new ones out, and going on the pc. If it works fine, then try the other (if it
    s 2x1GB sticks). Once you find one that slows your pc down, then that's the defective one.

    Just to point out, your motherboard is socket AM2, not socket 940. If you ever look for stuff relating to socket 940, you'll find it's not suitable.
