Check your swap file, is there enough room on the partition/drive?

    you need to go to the properties of your computer, navigate to the advanced tab and find out if the page file is locked at a fixed ammount and look at the properties. The standard for the page/swap file is 1.5 times the ammount of physicall ram installed.

    This means that at 4GB, you should have a range up to 6GB for your swap/page file. You also need to find out which partition that the swap file is assigned to and look to see if it has been put on a partition that does not have enough room and change the location of it.

    first af all, make sure that you have a good antivirus and malware program installed and updated and run them/it just to be safe.

    Malware_Bytes is free and very good, this is always the first place to start.

see this instruction and proceed according. God bless you

To partially clear computer RAM memory, close some programs that are currently running. In Windows, right-click on any program in the task bar and choose the "Close" option. That will free up the memory that was used by the program. Even if you close every program running on the task bar, a big chunk of memory is taken up by the operating system. The RAM used by the operating system cannot be cleared without shutting down the system.

  • 2 To clear computer RAM memory totally, you have to shut down the system. In Windows, click on the Start Menu and click the "Shut Down" option. Unix and Linux have similar options. When this process is complete, all RAM will be cleared.

    If you are somewhat impatient, turn off the computer by pressing the power button on the computer. This is slightly quicker than the previous step.

  • 4
    If you are very impatient, unplug the power cord of the computer. If it is a laptop, disconnect the battery as well. The computer's RAM memory will be cleared immediately upon the power source being disconnected. This method of shutting down the computer usually causes corruption or some other problem when the operating system is booted up again.

    Hello, I was looking to upgrade the ram in my old dell 5150. The specs say you can use a Max of 4 1 gig sticks yet these specs where released prior to windows 7 ultimate which uses far more ram. What are...

    Check Use the downloadable program to analyze your system or use the interactive menu system to explore your options.

    Check online forums using google searches for terms like 'dell 5150 memory upgrade'. Sometimes, the maximum in the manual is not the real maximum. My Dimension 1000 laptop accepted a certain 1 GB card when the manual said the max was 256MB. Still running it after nearly ten years. The laptop was **** with 512MB (256 built-in and 256 add-on card) but the gf uses it every day.

    Jetway motherboard 939 GT4-SLI-G will only accept 3.5 gig RAM and not 4 gig RAM as per specifications. It does not run on gaming applications when 4 gig inserted (4 x 1 gig). Any solution?

    If you are running a 32 bit version of windows it will only see up to 3.5gig of ram in your system no matter how much ram you put in there.
    This is down to 32 bit windows only being able to address a maximum of 3.5 gig of ram.
    Windows 64bit can address a far larger amount of ram and is why you will see all windows computers running 4gig or more of ram having Windows 64bit installed.
    As you have said your computer is running Windows 7 32bit the only way you will get your computer to see the whole 4gig of ram you have installed is to upgrade to Windows 7 64bit.
    Hope this answers your question and helps you out.

    Umm the info on one of my appliances is wrong and have no ide a how to edit iton this website by the way it's a 3 gig ddr2 about to be a 4 gig apparently that's the max the motherboard will allow even...

    If you have a 32 bit version of Windows dont put in 4 gigs. The Motherboard may support it but a 32 Bit version of Windows will only support a total of 4 gigs of ram including the video memory, cache, and pci. If its a 32 bit I normally recommend no more than 3.5 gigs of ram memory. Normally its safer to run 3 gigs. Windows may not run well if you go past that 4 gig point. As far as the appliances problem your refering to I didnt understand what you were asking for.

    Hope this helps keep you from having a ram issue.

    If you need help with the other question please be more specific. Thanks...

    4 gigs of ram on xp 32 bit

    Depends on how much memory your motherboard can accomodate. If *********** board can support 4 gig then just plug your ram and it should work.. xp supports up to 4 gig of ram so even if you connect an 8 gig,it will only recognize the 4gig. Hope this help,
