Question about Toshiba Satellite A70-S249 Notebook
My laptop keeps coming up with low memory, when there is nothing saved on my laptop! I've updated all drivers and windows and still comes up with it!
If it is saying low memory as in referance to the systems memory (RAM) then you have too many processes going at one time a good way to try to do this one is look on the bottom of your screen on the task bar, close anything that does not need to be open this will ushally fix this error
if you are getting low memory on your hard drive.
have internet explorer opened up and go to tools on the top menu and then go to internet options and then delete you browsing history and then your cookies and temp internet files and whatever else internet related. Also uninstall any programs that you have not used in the last 30 days.
if you have alot of music or videos on your computer burn them off or delete them free up as much space as possible.
hope this helps and if you clarify for me of the low memory if its due to ram or hard drive space then I can give you some more tips ontop of that as well specific to the issue.

Low memory usually refers to the RAM. Low space refers to the Hard Drive. You might have too many applications/programs running at the same time on your laptop. Or have an application or program that is using up too much memory. Viruses/Spyware sometimes do this to put your computer in a state that is not usable.
So what you can do is add more RAM. And check your "Task Manager" for applications and/or programs that is using too much RAM. Look under the column "Mem Usage"

The computer has nothing on it at all! And when I check the system it only says its got 8gb of memory, when it should be 80! So I think it might be the Hard drive itself!!

Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the sensapi.dll error.
If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted sensapi.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover sensapi.dll with a free file recovery program.
Important: Recovering a deleted copy of sensapi.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some sensapi.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the sensapi.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the sensapi.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
Reinstall the program that uses the sensapi.dll file. If the sensapi.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the sensapi.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to sensapi.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file sensapi.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
Note: The sensapi.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if sensapi.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the sensapi.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The sensapi.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause sensapi.dll errors as they fail.
Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual sensapi.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
Use a free registry cleaner to repair sensapi.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid sensapi.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the sensapi.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the sensapi.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any sensapi.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
The sensapi.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
