Question about Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook
I have a Dell Inspiron 1521 computer, 250gig HDD and 2gigs of DDR RAM. Ever since I've bought it it has ran vista fine and until recently it has had some physical memory issues. When I open Task Manager and go to the performance tab it show's 1407 of my total 1917 MB of RAM as "CACHED" with little as 10 free MB open. I have only Firefox open and aim as we speak. Earlier today and yesterday when i installed Vista on my new HDD, mentioned above, everything was running fin and the cached memory number was lower. Since I have such a high amount of cached memory does this mean I need to upgrade to 4 GIGS? Or are there any other ways to fix this issue, please any assitance is greatly valued!
Hey bro, a gross consumption of system resources s a good sign of... sorry to be the one to tell you, but a virus. A good free virus removal/detector is avg ( http://free.avg.com/ ). If this isn't the problem, you might want to shut down extra junk. You can delete stuff from your Programs folder, or you can do a temp thin. Under run on the start menu, type msconfig. From here, you can shut down any programs that you don't need. Just make sure to restart when you're done.
