Hi, Whenever I try to delete some files on my external hd, it says it is 'deleting' but never actually does, my laptop fans comes on, the laptop slows down so i click out of the ex hd and stop the deleting of files (which never actually delete) and still the fan is on, laptop is slow and my task manager shows that 'performance'/CPU usage is 100%. Also, it says that it is using 1.2GB of Ram and i have 4gb. From experience of the last week or so, within an hour the laptop will switch off.
Similarly, if i try to burn a DVD with too many tabs open (18 pages), it becomes too much for my laptop and it turns off.
It is Vista nd is about three years old and is a Medion

Vista 32bit can only see a maximum of 4gb well actually about 3.5gb vista 64 bit can use up to 8gb
Think we need to see what procees is using 100% as secret squirrel has asked
