When you say losing memory do you mean RAM or disk space? And is the memory filling up, that is losing available memory, or does the indicated total memory go down.

If you want to check the RAM memory in the machine you can download the memtest program from: http://www.memtest86.com/

You will need to make a CDROM (older versions you could make a floppy, but I am not sure if that is still an option). This will do a very good test of the memory, which is not possible when the operating system is running.
