I have a laptop with 3gb of memory but I keep getting messages that I am low on memory or now and then the computer crashes. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Have you looked at 'Task Manager' to see what is using the memory?

Right click 'My Computer/Properties' and check it shows the correct amount of memory is present.

Ive had a look. I am using Chrome as my browser and it seems to be using a lot of memory. Im not running anything else and it tells me I`m using 82% of memory. Cheers.

Go into processes in taskmanager and see what is using up most of the CPU.

If nothing running system idle process should be showing about 96% which is normal.

If chrome is the problem switch it off and use Firefox or I/E and see if things improve.

Yeah, thanks. Ive swithched to Firefox now and physical memory has gone down to 50% but with only a couple of tabs open. Ive had this problem running either Chrome or Firefox and I hate Internet Explorer. Ta.
