As stated earlier, there are two kinds of "memory" RAM and Hard Disk space.
Let's rule out Hard Disk space:
When you start windows, press the start button on the left bottom of your screen, and go to "my computer" then right click on the drive with the letter "C"
A menu will appear, select "properties" at the bottom of the menu. When you do this a little box will appear that that shows you how much used space you have, and how much free space you have. Please write down the used space and the free space.
If you have a lot of free space, than it is doubtful that your hard disk is low on space. But if you have very little free space (normally less than 2 Gb) than the "memory" you speak of is actually low hard disk space.
If the hard drive is low on space there are four things you can do:
1. Delete movies, and other unneeded things, and then empty "recycling bin".
2. when you right click your C drive and go to properties, you can select "disk cleanup" this will delete temporary files, and unneeded files stored in your web browser.
3. Remove unneeded programs such as old video games and stuff. Do this by going to start, control panel, add and remove programs. Then select the stuff on the list to uninstall. But only uninstall things you don't want or need.
4. Buy a second hard drive to transfer non essential files to. Store your music, movies, and games on your new hard drive, and keep your current hard drive just for essential files. When buying a new hard drive, you don't have to throw away the old one, you can use more than one at a time.
Oh yeah, when you check the space on C drive, make a note of how much is used and how much is free, then post the results here on the forum if you are unsure of how much free Hard Disk space you need. We will look at the free space and see if it is likely low on space. As a general rule, 4 gigs or less free space means your hard disk is running very low, and "low memory" errors occur when the free space is less than 2 GB.
