Hi all, I not sure whether the two things are related or not. If I spend a lot of time 'surfing' I can sometimes be warned that 'sytem resources are low' and do I wish to close certain programmes. I thought, perhaps wrongly, that this may have been due to insufficient RAM and installed an additional 512Mb of DDR RAM.I have done a 'system scan' from Crucial and that indicates that I have one 256Mb, and one 512Mb memory cards installed, but 'My Computer System Properties' tells me that I have only 224Mb of RAM. I am running Win98se, AMD Athlon XP 1700+ (1.4Ghz),224Mb Ram. I did a search on the site 'Low Resources' and ran a 'memtest 33', what results should I be getting from this test, I get a lot of numbers down the lefthand side of the page but nothing else happens, is this correct? P.
Thanks all I'll answer the questions as they appear. Yes I think the bios does read 768Mb on start up, and I do have Word installed. I have printed off the information from MS Support and will read it shortly. Would the advice be to remove one of the memory cards and run only with 512Mb? P.
I believe that the only programmes I have running in Msconfig are necessary ones, but...... One other thing, my original memory speed was/is PC2100, the memory which Crucial advised I could use is PC2700, will this make a difference if I remove the original 256Mb card? P.
