I just made a upgrade to my computer. I bought a 2gb stick of corsair RAM. Previously I had a 1gb stick of RAM in the computer. I ran the corsair utility to tell me what RAM would work, and it gave me one option. That is the option I went with.
Now that the RAM has been installed, here is what is happening:
Google Earth won't load. It seems to crash every time I try Loading it.
I tried opening Adobe Photoshop CS4 once, and my entire computer crashed.
When I click "My computer->properties" it says I only have 1.96 GB of RAM instead of 3.
When I run CPUZ, it sees both sticks of RAM in their proper places, and tells me I have 3 GB of RAM installed.
Anybody know the discrepancy between Windows and CPUZ? Also, any thoughts about the sudden instability of my system?
I'm running Windows XP Service Pack 3, 32 bit.
