Free ram xp

I'm running free ram xp on my laptop and it keeps telling me that I am out of system resorces even though my system still runs fine if I close free ram. Is this a problem with my pc.

Sounds more like a problem with "free ram" to me!

How much RAM do you actually have?

You shouldn't need to use third party apps as XP handles its RAM just fine.

I've got 512mb installed not sure what type though. system also shows 410mb page file usage. I'm only running


Does this seem right.

Sorry if this seem's daft new to all this.

No, it doesn't sound right.

I think DieSse and Powerless have hit the nail on the head.

Get rid of free ram xp- you don't need a third-party memory manager with xp.

The amount of RAM you have is absolutely OK for what you are doing - and more. WinXP can sort out it's RAM handling fine, without the need for other programs, and there is no need to worry about page file useage of that level.

Just enjoy what you are doing, and stop worrying about RAM useage.
