Hey about a month ago some of the ram in my computer became faulty so I had to replace it. Since then my computer has been running slower and videos have been lagging with the picture pausing but sound continuing to play. Game cinematics have also been stuttering as in the picture and sound have been stopping and starting every half second or so. Games have also been running slower and lagging. Not sure what to do about it, can I get some help?

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
Intel Core i7 860 @ 2.8GHz 2.79Ghz
8 gig of RAM
Gigabyte motherboard.

Thanks.

did you replace all the ram, or just the faulty sticks? and if just the faulty sticks, did you use the same model ram, or different? if so, what was the original ram, and what is the new ones.

I just replaced the faulty sticks. I originally had two sticks of 2gb DDR3 1333mhz corsair xms3 RAM. I added a stick of 2gb ram out of a spare computer later. When the RAM failed I could turn the computer on so I tested each stick of ram individually and since it didnt boot with the spare ram i removed that and it started booting again but ran slower. I assumed that was becuase there was less ram than before so i ordered and installed two new sticks of the same 2gb DDR3 corsair ram that had come with it. So now i have the two 2gb sticks it came with as well as the two new sticks of the same sort of ram.

The reason I was asking was using mixed types of ram could cause your slowdown, but since your using the same type that is not the issue. Have you done an virus scan since then, or defragmented the hard drive?

Yes I've scanned with malwarebytes anti malware and sophos anti virus and nothings come up and i defragmented my hard drive with windows defrag but it hasn't helped the problem.

is it possible that you didnt remove all the bad sticks? try running just the new ones, and if you dont have the lag, then put in just the old ones and run memtest86 on them and see what happens.

Have you tried running memtest86 with the sticks to make sure their all still good? Also, try going into the BIOS and restoring fail safe defaults-and seeing if that corrects anything.
