Answers :

Shouldn't be a huge issue, but it can either be caused by a faulty program or a faulty ram. Seeing as the desktop you're referring to is a bit older, check the RAM:

If it is problematic, you'll need to replace it. Using your service tag, go on dell.com's website, under help and support. Lookup your service tag and it will inform you which ram you should purchase.
