Can you use a mouse with the chrome book?

Which specific Chromebook do you have? The Samsung Chromebook has USB ports on the back of the unit (below the hinge for the screen). The Acer C720 Chromebook has one USB port on each side. Most basic mice should work. (Some gaming mice and mice with unifying adapters might have issues.) Some report needing to disconnect and reconnect the mouse after turning on the Chromebook to get it to work. Other models can connect to a bluetooth mouse, like this: . Enable Bluetooth and then synch the mouse using the PIN provided in the documentation.

Please note: adding these external devices may reduce the length of time that you can use the Chromebook before recharging the battery.

I hope this helps.

Can I install ISC on my samsung chromebook?

ISC products require processor access and chrome book does not allow it.
It needs an app specifically tailored to chrome book operating system.
Although BIND uses the ARM processor it cannot interface with the chrome book links internally.
The only thing that will work are items that are browser based where the processing is done on the ISC site.

What specifically makes a Chromebook run out of memory? Is there a way to make it less likely to run out of memory too soon?

Well, how much memory does your chrome book have? Sounds like you have low memory to start.
Suggestion would be to purchase additional if your chrome book is able to upgrade. I'm not very familiar with chrome books. But, sounds like you are running low on virtual memory, and RAM.

because 1. you are signed in with the same Gmail account you have on your phone and the game is going to your phone because you haven't updated the chrome book to be on the list of devices that you own

2. so try updating your device list and tell the game to go to your chrome book when you choose to download the game

and it will also tell you if that game can be played on the chrome book - so try getting games from Chrome Browser market
