I recently bought a Compaq Mini 702EA. It's fantastic by the way in case anyone was thinking of a netbook!
But it only had 1GB ram when I bought it - DDR2 PC5300 DDR2-800
So I bought a new chip from ebay. Unbranded: 2GB, DDR2 PC5300, DDR2-667 (ebay item number-110374700831). And then I also installed some updates on windows XP.
When I restarted everything I felt that windows explorer was running really slowly.
So I'm wondering whether it's because my RAM is slower? Does anyone think this might be the case and if so should I replace the existing chip with a 2GB DDR-2 800MHZ chip? Or do you think it wouldn't make much of a difference and maybe it's just a problem with explorer?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
