High CPU usage after upgrading 1GB to 2GB DDR400 PC3200

Hi..
Uhmm I'm having a problem in my pc after upgrading my 1GB DDR400 PC3200 memory by adding another 1GB DDR400 PC3200.
Before I installed the new memory, loading after the bios only take 20-30 sec and the CPU usage is normal.
After installing the new memory the loading after the bios takes 2-3 mins and by just opening "my computer" the CPU usage is hitting at 100%.
I tried to install a fresh copy of my OS but still having the same problem.
Is there any incompatibility?

********
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz (2 CPUs)
Motherboard: ASUS P5RD1-VM
HDD: 320GB SATA
VCard: Radeon X550
********

Need Help. Thanks

Now visit the maker of your ram modules for your specific ones. Find the Vdimm (ram voltage), frequency and timings. Set the bios accordingly.

If you need to know exact model of ram, use the spd tab of CPU-Z.

Try setting the Vdimm in bios to 2.65v and see how it goes.

And also, show me a screenshot of CPU-Z memory tab.
