What you need to look into is what's already occupying it and your virtual memory. It's possible you have many startup items that you don't need. As well, most folks have Windows services that can be disabled or set to manual that free up some memory. I can't give details on what you need and what you don't. Go to Start/Programs/Startup and see what runs from there. Also go to Start/Run and type "msconfig" and see how many boxes are checked in the startup tab. It will take some research to see which ones you need but you can use trial and error to uncheck these to see what can be eliminated. Another good practice is to clean out your browser cache. I set mine to empty cache upon program exit. FF does this well and IE does it in a so-so manner.
Hi Guys, this is my first post,
Power Predator tower system
AMD Athlon64 3800+ dual core socket 939
Maxtor 200GB Serial ATA 2 (11GB cache)
1GB RAM PC3200 DDR400 184 pin (2X512)
Windows XP SP2 Home Edit. OEM PC
Actually there are two problems.
1/ When I try to save a web page , I frequently get the message "there is insufficient memory to save this web page"
2/ If I am saving more than say 3, or 4 seperate items from a web page (in 3, or 4 seperate operations) to the same folder, the saving progress bar stops about halfway through and the computer "hangs". Pressing Ctrl Alt Del brings up Windows Task Manager which shows computer usage 50/75%, I then have to close down all the items running in Task Manager to continue, the screen then returns to desktop and everything is lost.
Is this because I simply don't have enough RAM with 1GB, or is there something else causing the problem? I would be grateful for any advice you could offer.
