Having problems with your Dell PC Desktops ?

I repeatedly get Program not responding messages


Answers :

The first thing that I would suggest is to run a virus scan on your computer because viruses can slow down the computer and make then non-responsive alot of times. Also if you run alot of programs on your computer this can cause your computer to use alot of its memory. You can go to the START Menu at the bottom of your computer, then go to MY COMPUTER, then to CONTROL PANEL, then to ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS. You will get a list of all the programs on your computer and how much memory space they are taking up. If you know of some that you no longer are using, delete them to free up more space. The more memory available the better and faster your computer will perform. After deleting, be sure to restart your computer.
Not much to go on here. Are you asking for condolences, or what to do about it? This message is caused generally by your machine having run out of resources. That could be swap file space, due to having run out of room on your hard drive, or swap file size set too small. Graphics card insufficient for what you are trying to do, especially if it is an on-board graphics card. Mostly due to not enough RAM installed. RAM chips are cheaper than they have ever been. See how much is in your machine, and then max it out by adding RAM up to the capacity of your motherboard. Temporary fix is try running less applications at one time, defrag your hard drive, add a program such as Advanced Windows Care (FREE on the net) and use it to maintain your registry, I would go for the RAM upgrade.
