    hello all.
    i recently upgraded my memory ram to 2 slots of 2gb each
    the corsair for mac.
    now i find that loading times are a bit longer why is this?
    shoudnt it be faster loading times instead of slower loading times.
    and im not talking about the internet and it is not always,
    like a app that i would normally run logic pro 8 sometimes it takes a while
    longer than it used to before i upgraded the memory. also in startup it takes a while longer than it used to why?
    TIA
    Marco Tulio

    I would try three things:
    1. Repair Permissions using Disk Utility
    2. Use DiskWarrior or Drive Genius 2 to de-frag your directory
    3. Reset your PRAM by holding down command+option+P+R on startup until you hear a beep and it restarts
