Hello:

I just installed New Memory a couple hours ago and my question is:

Is there anything that needs to be done to my System after New Memory has been installed.

I don't want to make any mistakes or mess anything up.

Also, I need to do some downloading and want to know if that's alright to do.

Can someone help please ....

Thank you !!!

Go to Start then to Control Panel
Click on System then click on Advanced tab.
In the Performance Field click on Settings
Now on the Advanced Tab click on Change
Now take a screenshot and include it in your next reply.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

OK you set VM for System Managed Size
This should allow your system to run correctly with no more VM problems.

That's GOOD news.

So, in your EXPERT opinion, do I get a CLEAN bill of health now, or is there something else that needs to be done.

One more thing rshaffer.

After I opened up the CASING on the PC and in the process of taking out the old memory, I noticed THREE plugs, but one of those three plugs was not connected into that last SOCKET. I tried to put it back in, but I thought, it's hanging for a reason, so I just left it.

I'm not sure if those plugs were the plugs that were connected to the HARD DRIVE casing or not, but there it was, hanging by itself.

What do you think??

You will always have extra plugs because the PSU manufacturers always put more on the PSU then you will ever need.
How is the system running now with the new memory in it? Is it running faster and hopefully no VM problems now.

rshaffer:

This really will be the last time.

I think I mentioned to you that I play a lot of puzzle games that I install and uninstall after I'm finished. None of these games are free. These games of course are different in size of downloads and installs.

Can you explain ONE MORE TIME, the difference in FREE SPACE size and the Memory I just put in.

The reason I ask this is because I just uninstalled a game that said while installing, "Your system needs to have a required Free Space size of 78.29 MB".

The Defrag. Report tells me that I only have 55.78 Free space size.

Since I just put in 1-gig of Memory, why didn't my Free Space size increase ???

55.78 mb is free space right now.
The ram memory is a different issue and would have nothing to do with the amount of free space left on your hd.
JD space is the amount of space you have to load programs like the games you suggested.
Memory allows you to open those games faster.

Try this.

Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On left side click on Disk Management
On right side you will see you hard drive.
Now I need you to take a screenshot and attach it to your next reply. Do the following to take a screenshot while the above is open and showing on your desktop.

To do a screenshot please have click on your Print Screen on your keyboard. It is normally the key above your number pad between the F12 key and the Scroll Lock key
Now go to Start and then to All Programs
Scroll to Accessories and then click on Paint
In the Empty White Area click and hold the CTRL key and then click the V
Go to the File option at the top and click on Save as
Save as file type JPEG and save it to your Desktop

Simplee55...please post the screen shot as Rshaffer61 has requested so we may verify what you have.

As I recall, back a number of posts when you were asking about hard drives and memory, we determined then that you had about 55-60 gb of hard drive free space left on a 80gb drive. That would be 55,000 to 60,000mb.....so a 78.29mb file will have plenty of room to fit.

A gb (giga byte) is not the same as a (mega byte).

The relationship is as follows.
8 bits = 1 byte
1024 bytes = 1 kilobyte
1024 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
1024 megabytes = 1 gigabyte
1024 gigabytes = 1 terabyte
This is the traditional concept.

Most manufacturers use 1000 instead of 1024 for the conversion. As a result:
1000 bytes = 1 kilobyte
1000 kilobytes = 1 megabyte
1000 megabytes = 1 gigabyte
1000 gigabytes = 1 terabyte

Please notice that due to the ratio of bits to bytes (8:1), 1 gigabit is just 1/8th of 1 gigabyte.

rshaffer:
Stop with instructions on the SNAPSHOTS. I know how to do snapshots, why, because you have taught me very well on snapshots my friend.

I'll be right back with that snapshot.

123Runner:

Thank you so much for that very technical breakdown of MB's vs. GB's. But I'm still not able to wrap my mind around such tech numbers, wasn't very good in math.
