PC keeps running low on memory & resources

  Newuser2 20:07 16 Apr 04

My PC keeps running out of memory & or running low on resources, at least thats what the error messages say.
The PC is a 500 P111 with 512 of ram. comprising of 2 X 128's & 1 x 256. & I'm running ME.
Sometimes the PC runs like clockwork & reasonable quickly other times it almost stands still.
I've seen referances to this sort of problem in the past.
Any help would be great.

Ensure you are running only the minimum programs necessary. click here for info.

Also, see if there is a pattern to the problem; it may be that a program is failing to release memory correctly.

Just a suggestion, but have you tried defragging?

........or even using System Restore to get you back to a time when it was running properly?
