I am having a major issue with the memory on my computer (laptop), Let me explain:
I got this laptop as a gift, its a hp Pavillion N5270 , It originally ran on Windows Me , and when I got it, it had windows XP already installed, but this computer is a gift and is used, so it had a whole lot of stuff already on it. So I decided that I should wipe it clean and re install everything knew. The person who gave it to me gave me the recovery cd and the Windows XP edition cd, so I did all that. Well, Before I did that the computer had Almost 18 GB of memory, NOW after I cleaned it all up, it only has 7.33 GB!!! I have no idea how that happened and I would greatly appreciate some help! PLEASE! 7.33 little GBs are nothing when your running XP and firefox and all that... I only have 2 gb (out of the 7) of free space left and thats only because I havn't dl all the other things that the computer needs to run smoothly... (realplayer, adobe ect)
I should also add that I am not that great with computers, I mean I can get along but please give it to me a simply as possible lol! I thank you all in advance so much!
Anticipating an answer soon!
