Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I am fairly computer literate and live in a High-Rise with a lot of "Senoirs". I am a female, age 55 and have had a PC in my home since around 1997. I currently have Windows Vista Home Premium Service Pack 1 with 4 Gigs. NOW, for my problem, I have a reputation in my building for being able to fix most anything on neighbor's computers. Yesterday I was called by an intelligent, retired gentleman who is in his 80's, but loves his computer. His problem was it kept telling him he was out of memory.


Answers :

Two years ago I bought a used computer and a legimate copy of XP SP3, which I took to the repair shop (where I bought the computer) for installation. The shop used their own installation disk.

I used a utility to change the product number, but still get the same message. I will appreciate all sugges
