Having problems with your eMachines EL1210-11 PC Desktop ?

I am supposed to have 512 mb ram but my system shows 384 ram even when I am doing nothing why


Answers :

HI,

There are other applications which run on the background and use the memory.You can close all unwanted programs for taskbar.Or also Press start >run> type services.msc and change the property of few applications which you use to manual.Like yahoo messenger,msn messenger etc.You will however not get back the full 512 mb because some appications need to use the ram so that your pc can run.So you just don't need to worry.

If you need any more help let me know.

Thank you


When you turn on your pc, the operating system is loaded from your hard drive into the system ram (512mb).
\015\012
\015\012The operating system will set aside a portion of the available 512mb of ram so that it can perform whatever task you want the pc to do. This space will be used by the operating system even when you're doing nothing as you've noticed.
\015\012
\015\012The remainder of the ram (384mb) is available to run other programs.
