When you say 10 gig is unaccounted for do you mean the pc says the hard drive size is only about 30gig or that the free space is showing incorrectly?

That aside the low memory message is probably caused by too many programs runnung in the background.

Try going Start then Run type in

msconfig

and click OK, go to the startup tab and using the search click here untick any not nrequired.
