Having problems with your Intel Computer Processors ?

Lack of memory on hard disc C

\015 My hard disc C has a capacity of 74.5 GB of which 47.5 GB is free space. Why then is my computer almost grinding to a halt and why does Norton 360's diagnostic tell me that I need to install more memory?\015

Answers :

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012You mentioned that "my computer almost grinding to a halt" and also the Norton diagnostics ask you to "install more memory". This points to a problem with the amount of RAM memory installed on your computer and has nothing to do with the available space on disc C.
\015\012
\015\012Adequate amount of RAM memory is required to run programs and softwares and games on any computer. If it is below the required or recommended amount, the computer slows down or freezes when one tries to run any program or software.
\015\012
\015\012To find out the amount of RAMinstalled on your computer, right-click on the "My Computer" icon on the Desktop, and select Properties from the menu. Then on the window which opens you will find the amount of RAM installed in Mb's or Gb's. If the RAM memory is inadequate, you will have to purchase a new RAM module according to the make and model number of the computer.
\015\012
\015\012Please let us know the amount of RAM currently installed on your computer, also the make and model number of your computer, so that we can guide you further.
