System memory low PC takes a long time to respond

My older Celeron 400 PC has recently started to operate with short periods of freezing and then continuing. I have received a message telling me the system memory may be low. How do I check wether this is the cause? Could there be other causes? Thanks

hi
you could try installing a program such as cacheman (find it on click here) and search. it tells you how much memory is not in use and can recover memory as well. also you could try increasing the size of your virtual memory (also caled paging file) in control panel>system>advance>performance options. this may sort it out.
otherwise you might have to buy some more memory or uninstall programs you dont need anymore or try to stop applications booting up at startup?
ask if you don;t knopw how!! :)

I'm going to build my first computer so I'm no expert! My motherboard will be a Gigabyte-7N400 Pro II-nVidia nForce2-Socket A ATX Motherboard.
I've been told that I need to get Dual channel DDR not ordinary DDR if I want to get the best out of this particular board. Does anyone know what this is and where I can buy some? Crucial were no help!
