Question about Dell Computers & Internet
My computer is performimg tasks very slowly all of a sudden. My computer has 4gb of ram memory installed but the computer properties is only reporting 2.5gb of ram. I ran a diagnostics and it didnt report any problems. I also ran microsoft windows memory diagnostic test and it didnt report any problems. I have run antivirus checks and performed disc clean up and defragmentation to no avail. Dell says it only will report a max of 3gb ram even when 4 is installed. I checked the memory cards and all are firmly seated in place. Any suggestions?
Dell are correct - 32bit Windows uses Physical Address Expansion (PAE) to use the remainin 1GB from the reported 3GB of RAM.
Do you have lots of items runnign in the background? Do you have a lot icons by the clock on the lower left of the taskbar? try uninstalling programs that you no longer use.

I joke to my friends that it is software planned obsolescence... I would recommend reinstalling your Operating System. I do it every 6-12 months to keep things quick. Microsoft is weird like that.
