Test your RAM with Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool.
Here's one of the many how-tos on YouTube: How To: Memtest86+ Test your Memory Subsystem - YouTube
If you get errors and you have multiple RAM sticks, take one out a time and retest.

Hello niharika

The Dell Latitude D530 notebook was released with two different specs 1GB of Ram and an 80GB HDD and 2GB of Ram and a 120GB HDD, low storage space on the HDD can also cause a computer to slow down and crash, can you do the following for us please;

Go to Start then to Run
Type in compmgmt.msc and click Enter
On the left side click on Disk Management
On the right side you will see your hard drive.
Now I need you to take an expanded 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 capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.
