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.
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.
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.
Check www.crucial.com. 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.
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.
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...
There is a service running or startup item that is interfering with Office..
Try typing msconfig in the start command and disable items one at a time to see the culprit.
Before diabling anything that might be important google the startup item and see if it is needed.
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,
