    Right now I get a lot of "not responding" messages on my PC. It has 5 GB of ram in it which I am sick and tired of getting. How much RAM would I need to add to stop seeing this message? I wouldnt want to spend some much on it so if someone could show me some prices with the RAM i need i would really appreciate it. I stream network tv shows that i missed on tv and watch it on it, browse the net, chat on skype and that is about it for net usage. Can someone help me out with my question.

    thx

    'Not responding' doesn't necessarily mean you're low on memory. You should keep an eye on your resource usage and get back to us.

    5 is an odd number for RAM?. Sounds like you've got a cobbled together machine.

    Run CMD as Admin and throw in the following:

    Code:
    wmic baseboard get product,manufacturer,version,serialnumber
    Post back the M/B details

    Which programs are giving you the "not responding" message? Could be something like antivirus causing issues with whatever you're trying to run.

    @HT: 5GB of RAM is probably 4GB + 2GB - system reserved.

    Nope, this machine shipped with 5GB memory. An odd machine all together.

    Maybe the OP just needs to perform a software & hardware cleanup.

    Dude have you cleaned up your PC lately. Hardware and software? You still haven't posted resource usage per request for help.

    Please it would help vastly.

    You're the only person who knows WHAT apps you installed and need! That simply means: HELP YOURSELF!, because nobody else could!

    A simple guideline is: Install only what you know and need! Don't install anything you get your hands on!!

    Agreed, The OP just needs to do a software cleanup!

    @bergy37


    Download CCleaner and clean your Registry, download Clean Master for Windows a clear junk, download Piriform Defraggler and defrag + optimize and finally remove and unnecessary programs and startup entries.

    Plus do a full antivirus and antimalware scan. Use TDSSKiller for rootkit checks also.

    This is all you need to do.
