Your laptop has 1gig of memory running vista on tickover can use 3/4 of this leaving you with little memory to run programs especially games.

I would suggest you install another gig of memory to improve your problem click here let it scan your computer, it will suggest upgrades/cost etc an extra gig will not cost much and would improve your system, fitting more memory into a laptop is easy click here

Memory and harddrive space are two different things.

start/my computer/right click on c drive and select properties, this will show you how much of your hard drive has been used and how much is free.......

Memory is like an engine that drives your programs,the size of your engine(memory )is struggling to run your pc.

Check to see if your laptop has a small removable panel on the bottom for additional memory. If so, you can easily add more. As for invalidating the warranty - well, I think it's pants that any manufacturer would take that attitude if they provide the free slot - but in any case, you could remove the extra before sending it back and they'd never know.
