Get Firefox :)

Ok, seriously, your laptop should be able to handle all those windows with 3GB of RAM. Try to get it up to that many again so you can see the error, and when that happens, open Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc). Then click the "processes" tab and click on 'Memory.' Click on it so that it's sorted with the largest numbers at the top. You should be able to see what program is taking up all your memory. I'm not sure if IE would use that much (I use Firefox... 1 window is all I need!) You may have spyware or some unwanted program leeching all of your resources and in that case I would recommend you get some antivirus or antispyware software.

BIOS says 3GB RAM, Properties says 2GB RAM


You may want to flash your bios on the motherboard if there is an update. Windows XP Pro will support up to 4GB of RAM.

Why is my computer still lagging even after I close the game


Sounds like there is some process being run that is eating up a lot of your RAM. One thing to check is that you are using a 64-bit install of windows if you are using 32-bit it won't matter that you have 6gb as you can only use 3gb with it. It could be that you are running 32-bit and 7 is taking up about a gb of RAM while the games (even when closing) take up 2gb or so. So you could be maxing your 3gb on 32-bit.

What is the max ram i can upgrade to ?


The amount of memory your Windows computer will recognize depends on two factors:
the maximum capacity your computer hardware can handle and the version of Windows your computer uses.
The most memory the 32-bit versions of Windows will see is only 3GB or 3.5GB, if your computer hardware can handle it. The 64-bit version of Windows can address even more memory.

Sorry, But my IBM t42 Thinkpad with no screen has 1 long beep and 2 short beeps. I suppose those beeps mean something is not right.


This IBM beep code means a motherboard or a video fault.
The video chip is part of the motherboard.
There is one thing you can try, the video RAM uses Shared RAM (ie. it uses part of the RAM module), if the RAM is faulty or not seated properly it will produce this error code.
Re-seat the RAM module, and if it still doesn't work then take the RAM to your friendly computer/repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If it is faulty, then replace the RAM and with luck the laptop will be operating again.

I have the same problem


if you are using windows xp, then follow these steps:
1) right click "my computer" icon, select "advanced" tab, click settings button towards the right of "start up and recovery" and  click "edit" tab
a notepad window appears with some text in it which reads something like this :

[boot loader]
timeout=0
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT 

modify that text to look like this:
[boot loader]
timeout=0
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /FASTDETECT /3GB /userva=2800 /NoExecute=Op

Warning : only the "/3GB /userva=2800 /NoExecute=Op" has to be added extra else you will mess up

2) save the notepad and insert max ram, and check, if any BSOD's
if the problem persists, then it is hardware related..
Most probably one of your ram stick may be the problem child(which may be either incompatible with your motherboard or defective)

Best of luck...

What is upgrad & how upgrad in HTC Touch P3450?


u cannot upgrade storage memory that is called RAM and ROM but u can always upgrade ur Storage card that is used for the storage of programs and files I understand ur problem u are feeling short of memory in Program and storage that RAM and ROM u cannot upgrade but u can do something about it i can help u in this

option 1
u can always reset the device for a new start and then try installing all ur programs to ur memory card when it ask for location where to install select storage card there and ur ROM will not be used to store those programs plus ur device will be fast in performance.
always

1.store programs in storage card
2.never install in ROM or ur device memory
3.Always close programs from the Task Manager a small arrow up on right side of screen select all programs and close them after u are done with them u will never be short of RAM.
4. Set ur History and cache folder of ur browser IE or OPERA to Storage card if u cant find the link to do this just google SKTOOLS for Windows Mobile download and install this software will let u configure where to keep ur history and cache files

5.When u recieve files from bluetooth they by default comes in the Device/MyDocuments folder and this will use ur device storage which is limited offcourse so u can google OBEX INBOX install and set the folder of recieving files thru bluetooth to memory card directly this is a very imp tool u will never find it easily i bet.

OS not showing full RAM


Hi Shibbymusic, as with most Asus boards if not all! The MB
A8N-E does not show all of your 4GB memory. See this FAQ;
http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A8N-E&os=17
Like you, I too have 4GB of memory.
Asus A8N32-SLI Deluxe w/4GB memory only see's 3GB
The bios displays 3GB during boot up & so does windows XP 32bit.
You might want to think about upgrading to 64bit os.
Updating your bios should help as well.
(See A8N-E Bios version 1010); http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=A8N-E&SLanguage=en-us

Thank you for using fixya!

Wireless connection works for Skype doesn't work for IE and Outlook


Hi there,dkny, What kind of router are you using? That may be where the complaint is coming from. Perhaps there is a setting to allow programs and/or hardware(wirless card). Also does the wireless card come with a configuration utility? You may have to 'tell it' what you want to do. Hope it helps!
