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.

Hi this sounds like a memory/ram issue you need to power of your machine, remove the power cable & then without the power cable connected, press & hold the power button for 15 seconds until it makes a chime noise, that is a basic power function reset, if that does not solve it, remove the memory cover panel on the under side of your laptop then carefully remove the memory chips blow or vacuum the area & use a dry piece of tissue to very gently clean your memory of any dust, replace the ram chips & re-connect power cord, this should solve it, but if not try starting up again without the power cord, if it's successful without the power cord you'll need a new 1, if not it suggests your ram chips have gone bad & you may need to purchase new ram chips, good luck :-) you can find more info about the 5 beeps here: Computer Does Not Start and Emits an LED or Beep Code

if you need to purchase new memory/ram chips you can get cheap ram here: Cheap Laptop Memory RAM Upgrade Low Prices UK Deals Ebuyer com

If you do need to buy new ram chips, I'd advise buying 2x 4GB modules :-)

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.

I have a Tecra 8200 bought as used fitted with 256MB of ram. If I buy an extra 256MB which brings the total to the maximum allowed of 512MB is it likely that I will need to upgrade the bios to allow the...


This laptop came with 128mb ram, you can safely install 2 sticks of 256mb for a maximum of 512mb with no bios update.
You need pc100 sodimms.
Amazon or ebay will be the best bet as this memory is expensive now from a retailer.
I found 256mb sticks for under $10 buy it now on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/256MB-SODIMM-PC100-SDRAM-256-MB-PC-100-LAPTOP-144-Pin-/190411543153?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c55699271

I think you're confusing RAM (memory) with hard disk space (storage). Installing more RAM makes your computer run faster. More hard disk space gives you more room to store stuff. Which would you like to do?

I have installed an extra 1G memory but it has not


Open "My Computer".
Right-mouse-click on the 'C:' drive.
Click 'Properties'.
A pie-chart will display, showing how much disk-space is "used"
and how much is "available".
Probably, the "available" pie-slice is less than 5% of the whole pie.

What Windows did was to "expand" the "paging" file, making it 1GB larger than it was before you added the RAM. So, the amount of "used" space on your C: drive is now 1GB _more_ than before.

So, burn some CD/DVD disks with some of your files,
and then delete the files, after checking that the disks are readable, to make more "free" space on your 'C:' drive.

I want to upgrade my hard drive.


If you have 50% or more disk space free then you may not need a larger hard disk at this time. If you have 512Mb of RAM, you can get better performance with 1Gb or better still 2Gb of RAM if your Acer can support more than 1Gb of RAM.

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.
