Hi everybody, just bought a new laptop and seem to be having some issues with the memory. The specs are as follows..
HP PAVILION DV9292EU Windows Vista Home Premium Turion 64 X2 Mobile TL-60 2GB RAM NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600 256MB DEDICATED 160GB HDD
I bought the laptop a week ago and haven't really installed any programs on it or got a lot of programs running at the same time, but I have noticed that on my old laptop (centrino 740 1.73ghz, 1GB RAM, 100GB HDD, 128 GEFORCE 6600 GRAPHICS, Win XP HOME) I could have about 40-50 Internet explorer windows up at a time, but with this one at the moment I have got a total of 26 up using 10 tabs, including 2 small youtube vids open, and I can't seem to open any more windows. Is this right? Surely I should be able to open more seeing as the specs better than my old laptop? In the task manager apparently 1.11GB of virtual memory is being used although i still have a total of 2GB. Could all this be because windows vista requires more memory to run, or should I be able to open more?
Lol, I was waiting for somebody to ask that. Erm well let me think. At the moment I have got so many pages open coz I am looking for some grappling shorts to buy and checking out different retailers and products, checking out forum pages, on youtube and also just general stuff basically.
Thanks for the previuos posts, I have already got that gadget (also thought it would be handy to have). I have closed a few of the windows now, but at the time when I couldn't open any more, it said that 55% of the ram was being used.
Thanks for the link. From readying that, maybe it's about right then. Seems strange though that I better laptop performs worse. Perhaps if I were running vista on my old laptop, if would be even worse.
