Your "This need to know has come up due to the possibility that I might want to load a program that takes 600 - 700 Mb of "memory." (that's all I know so far)." Simply means that the program requires that amount of space on your hard drive.
Also to me drives A, C, D, and E add up to four. Please explain your comment re three.
Hello to all.
I have a Dell Dimension 8200, 80 Gig physical memory, 512 Mb RAM, Intel Pentium 4 Processor 2000 Mhz, 1702 Flat Panel, Brother MFC-420cn. I'm running Windows XP SP2, AVG Pro, Spybot, MS Antispyware, and everything is patched and updated.
I'm in the dark, re: removable storage, so I'm copying the following from an AIDA report:
Floppy Drive Floppy disk drive
Disk Drive MAXTOR 6L080J4 (80 GB, 7200 RPM, Ultra-ATA/133)
Optical Drive _NEC NR - 7900A (24x/0x/40x CD-RW)
Optical Drive SAMSUNG DVD-ROM SD-616T (16x/48x DVD-ROM)
Please note: altho four drives are noted on the AIDA report, I have
only three. All three work wonderfully well, but, to me, they're simply
A, D and E. (Hard drive is C, of course)
I'm hoping someone can direct me to a site where I can learn how RAM and ROM work (dah -- I know what the acronyms mean, but their workings are a mystery to me.)
This need to know has come up due to the possibility that I might want to load a program that takes 600 - 700 Mb of "memory." (that's all I know so far).
My system has 512 Mb RAM, the 80 Gig total, and my computer info says I have 56 Gig free space. Seems like plenty of memory left -- but I don't understand how the 512 Mb RAM is affected.
Let's face it: My understanding, in total, is severely limited. In particular, I'm wondering if I have enough "memory" to load a 600 - 700 Mb program, but I also need to learn more about this for future reference.
Thank-you megaloads. I think 90% of what I've learned has come to me via forums, and I do love this forum in particular.
