You can free up some space on the hard drive not on the RAM
RAM is used by the system and appliction. you don't have control on it.
however, you can goto control panel>>system>>advanced>>performance settings>> advanced
adjuste the virtual memory setting.

NOTE::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::
if you don't know what to adjust, please don't touch it. let the system manage the virtual memory.
if you play around with it, you may not have the use of the computer.

What is the problem if the computer is always hanging?


There a several reasons why your computer is freezing. First question is when was the last time you cleaned your registry. Having a corrupted registry can cause a whole host of errors and problems. Freezing up is one of them. If you have a lot of unnecessary registry keys that are hogging up your computer resources. Your computer is bound to choke. Scan your registry with a good registry cleaner. If you pull up more than 20 errors or duplication, clean your registry.

2. Depending on your RAM specs and your computer usage. This could also be a the issue. Having an insufficient amount of free space does not allow your RAM to function properly. If you are using a lot of RAM by net surfing or other activities without enough empty space your will get freezes. You don't need to buy new RAM but you should increase your free space by removing unnecessary data and perhaps increasing your virtual memory. The below link will show you how.

3. Spyware could be the culprit, so do a scan and see if your computer is infected.

4. That last area is a hardware drivers. This could be the problem if new hardware has been added to the system. So, the drivers should still be up to date. So try the first two suggestion and see if you can get your computer to stop freezing.

Can i install windows 7 on acer veriton 7500g


Your Pc should meet the following hardware requirements in order to run Windows 7
  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
  • 16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
  • DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher drivers
I googled your pc model and found that you just need to install extra RAM (if your PC have less than 1 GB RAM).

My system says, (RAM) radon access memory low cpu intel (r) pentium 4 cpu, version 2.80 ghz. RAM 256 mb. What can I do to resolve this problem. Dell 4700 dimension


Windows XP requires a "bare-minimum" of 128MB of RAM, works "OK" with your 256MB of RAM, if you don't open too many programs at the same time, and if you close/re-open Internet Explorer about once an hour of usage.

But, Windows XP would be _much_ "happier" if you added 256MB or 512MB of RAM, because it is telling you ("available random access memory is low") that it is using all the RAM.

Add more RAM -- your computer will run much better.

C drive is too small and it is full. a norton tech said i need a least 2gb ram if my computer has the capacity.


Dear Dtrmn2wn,
I am not quite sure about the concern here .. To start with harddisk and RAM are two separate entities .. when you say C drive.. its your harddisk and when you say 2GB RAM.. its the actual RAM or Memory on your computer.
Now to make space on C drive all you need to do is un-install all the unnecessary softwares that might be occupying the space on harddrive .. delete the files that you no more require .. If you have movies or songs sitting on the C drive then move them to external storage or burn them to CD/DVDs .. Delete temporary internet files, cookies. Check "My Documents" and see what stuff you can delete and what can be moved to external media.
That should free up some space on C drive

Now if you want extra RAM then you will have to buy additional RAM cards and will have to insert them in the RAM slots .. Just check with the PC manufacturer on what kind of RAM is compatible and how much can your computer hold.

Hope that helps .. In case you still have additional queries then please feel free to write back and I would be glad to answer you :)

Regards,
Srinivas

Acer Travelmate 2300 memory all used


Disk space is not RAM.
RAM is a memory where operating system and software keeps their current state.
All disk space used is a message about the harddrive on your laptop.
You will have to buy bigger harddrive and change it (you will have to move or reinstall system) or buy an external USB harddrive and move some data onto it keeping the original system in place.

My laptop me ek extra ram lagana chata hu?


just turn your laptop back and find the space which is indicated by a label. Just pick a screw driver and open the screw. Make sure you have switch off your laptop properly. You will see a Ram puted on a jack and pick out the ram properly and see how many jacks are available. If more than one jack is available then take the ram to the market to purchase a similar matching RAM so that your laptop accept it. Then put the both RAM properly.

Video memory


1) On board video devices often use main system RAM,
by remapping it into their own address space.

This is designed to be CHEAP not GOOD.

Any RAM used by the video controller is NOT available to
to Windows, thus reducing system performance.

2) Sacrificing system RAM for video is a bad idea, the
system needs it more. Extra RAM in video controllers
is used mostly for 3-D effects and gaming, because
most video systems already have plenty of RAM for
implementing colors screen resolution.

On board video controllers are never fast or exotic enough
to benefit from the extra RAM anyway.

The rest of the system (i.e. Windows) on the other hand
can put any extra RAM to a far better use, by reducing
the need to store transient data on disk.

Don't forget that a hard disk is 10,000,000 times slower than
physical RAM, and when Windows starts running out of
physical RAM, it starts swapping data to disk (thrashing).

The performance penalty is not subtle !!!! Operations that
took a few seconds can take hours and even days.

3) It may be possible to change the balance between
system RAM and VIDEO RAM in the BIOS.
This depends on the motherboard.

4) If you want to drastically improve performance, do
buy a separate video card, for example an ATI Radeon
Saphire and disable the onboard video.

You must make sure the video card will fit in your
motherboard. Depending on the boards age, it
can use one of several types of I/O slots:

Vesa
PCI
AGP 2x
AGP 4x/ 8x
PCI Express

etc...

The card must match the slot.

5) The suggestion that adding a separate video card would
somehow slow down your computer is absolute non-sense.

Tell the guy to read some books, take a few classes, and
keep his opinions to himself until he knows something.

Internal video cards (on-board) have limited capabilities,
and steal system resources. Add-on cards are designed
for performance, by adding resources and off-loading
graphics related computation from the main CPU,
allowing it to do 0ther things.

6) Finally, using the hard-drive to supplement video RAM
is impossible. The hard disk is way too slow. It would be
like hitching a snail in front of your Porche. Perhaps
even a little worse.

Video RAM needs to be extremely fast, even faster than
system RAM. It is often organized using ultra-wide buses
with interleaved addressing for maximum speed. Also,
for this reason, good video RAM is not cheap. A good
Video CARD will have between 256 to 512 MB of fast RAM.

If you run Windows XP, your system should have at between
1024 to 2048 MBytes of system physical RAM.

Less RAM will make your system drastically slower when
doing things like video and image processing.

For VISTA, two gigs is the absolute minimum.


Disk are used for storing lots of data at a slow speed,
and retaining it with the power OFF.

Hard disks can store about 1,000 times as much as
physical RAM, but the access time is up to 10 million
times slower:

RAM can be accessed in 1 nanosecond.
DISK takes 10 milliseconds.

Hope this answers your question

More Hard Drive Space needed


well kristy, in installing the new HDD for your PC, just find a free SATA cable (that usually comes with the HDD when you buy one) the a free power pin, shut the computer down, plug both in, screw the HDD in place, then reboot the computer. Format the HDD under disk management (to do this check the link below)

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/309000

for the RAM, i personally recommend getting the exact same RAM that you have right now, that is because of stability and compatibility. some issues may occur when you use generic plus branded.
