The Toshiba is a newly purchased laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium on it. It has 3 GB SDRAM and 250 GB HDD. I have only downloaded Google Earth onto it. Now when I want to save a web page, I'm told there is ''insufficient memory''. Where do I go to correct the problem?

Computer does not boot up The problem maybe the RAM, it is faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact. Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.
Unfortunately, the slots on this motherboard are limited to a max of 2 GB each. You won't be able to use a 4 GB DDR2 800MHz memory stick with this computer. (This limit is due to the way the circuitry/programming of the board was designed.)
I wish that I had better news for you. You might be better off installing a Unix based OS which uses less memory or searching for a new laptop. Just remember to save your files on a different drive before making any changes.
Click on the blue link I have provided below. When the page loads up click on the down arrow next where it says "All Operating Systems" and select the one that says "XP SP2/SP3". Then you can download all the drivers you need for the laptop.
You should be able to boot the computer from the operating system recovery disk. Most likely your harddrive crashed, or one of (many) other issues. It could have just erased your MBR, in which case you can boot with a live cd and recover most (if not all) of your data.
