Is it possible that perhaps now the new drive is installed there isn't sufficient RAM or could it be a windows problem?

Question

I have recently installed an internal CD-RW on an old Packard Bell Machine with 16mb RAM. The BIOS is recognizing the new drive and windows (in safe mode) is working fine and system settings see the drive. However, when I boot in to Normal Mode (Win98) the taskbar appears but the icons take ages to appear, and sometimes don't. The HDD chugs away for ages and then stops but I can't load any programs or open the start menu.

Is it possible that perhaps now the new drive is installed there isn't sufficient RAM or could it be a windows problem?
