Help Needed. - LOW Memory


Nightryder3

Recommended Posts

-I don't know much about CPUs so I thought i'd stop by :)

 

 

 

-Wll it's quite simple. I have a computer with Very low memory

 

 

 

-At the moment I have 503 MB free. It's not i've used all my memory this computer has very low memory, like 1.2 GB

 

-The PC can handle Windows XP but I lagg a lot when playing RS resulting in multiple dissconnections.

 

-I can play classic fine but on RS2 I can't play.

 

 

 

Is there anything I can do to make my PC better to use RS2 without upgrading? Like anyways to free up space etc etc...

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks!

R.I.P

I think you mean Hard Drive space. Memory (RAM) is a whole different thing. Anyway, I suggest spending $300-450 on a new computer, keep the monitor, etc. That computer sounds too old to be upgraded to semi-modern standards. Sorry.

 

 

 

Don't buy a computer. Do this as your last resort. If you do need more memory you can upgrade it.

 

 

 

If that's physical memory your talking about then you have plenty. That might be the page file your talking about. To check how much memory you have do this: ctrl+atl+del>preformance tab> look at physical memory and tell us the total and the available.

 

 

 

You might just have a problem with the java in runescape. http://forum.tip.it/viewtopic.php?t=735

no, there is almost absolutly nothing you can do with the information you have given us.

 

 

 

Im guessing your running Windows 98 or lower, and it would be pretty dam hard to find upgrades for a PC that old.

 

 

 

Plus, with the Processor you have now, you can barely run Runescape on low detail, so the best thin you can do i start saving up your money, and by the time you have enough for a new computer intel should have their new processor out which will be so much better the your old processor.

64MB ram running Windows XP? I didn't know that was possible lol. I vaugly remember it saying 96mb minimum on the box? lol

 

 

 

That PC is probably atleast 7-8 years old? certainly didn't come with windows XP?

 

 

 

You could probably pick up a PC for $300 or so that would be 10x faster than the one you have :wink:

Unfortunatly theres is nothing you can to to make your computer better. It is obsolete. You need a new hard drive, new processor and new ram.... basicly a completely new system.

 

 

 

I think its time for you to upgrade, you are years behind and running a sluggish and insecure system.

Years behind is an understatement, more like ages.

 

 

 

 

 

Honestly Night I don't even see how you could run windows XP at all.

 

 

 

But like others said, just spend a little bit of money on a new rig. If you can't aford that than perhaps try and do a monthly plan (i'm sure quite a few companies do that).

 

 

 

also, if you don't mind me asking, how old are you? Just currious if you are actualy able to buy a new PC or if it's just your parrents or something.

My last three upgrades were a new motherboard (capacitors failed on the old one), going up from a 1.7 Pentium 4 to a Sempron 3100+ (I know many prefer the Athlon chip specifically, but this is a 64-bit Sempron), and upgrading from a GeForce 2 MX to a Geforce 6600 LE. The mobo and processor cost me $167, and the card $92 (all including tax). This was all through newegg.com, although I know some folks really like TigerDirect.

 

 

 

As long as you have an ATX power supply (and an ATX-compliant motherboard), you should have no problem upgrading your motherboard.

 

 

 

My last memory card was a 256 MB DDR 400 (not quite as fast as the new DDR2's but decent) that I got from a friend. He'd salvaged that and a couple of other cards that he was just going to donate somewhere. Is it possible to do the same yourself?

 

 

 

I don't recommend buying a new computer since you can often do better if you buy the parts from the retailers I mentioned. They are solid, reliable companies (newegg's been really good to me) and you don't have to replace everything although doing a custom build from scratch will give you more bang for the buck. It's also a bit easier to get an AMD processor yourself rather than hunt down a prepackaged system that has one. Unless you want to run a fancy dual core processor, I don't really recommend Intel.

 

 

 

If it's easier to buy a new computer, then go ahead, but I'd suggest you do what I did and get some help from a friend that knows hardware. If you think you can understand the manuals that come with the new parts (many are written in Asia so the English instructions come out a little funny sometimes), then you might be able to let him walk you through it. But definitely have someone who knows what they're doing make sure everything is connected and put together properly.

 

 

 

Again, I don't know how old or experienced you are, so I don't know how comfy you are with hardware. But consider some DIY help if you can get it-- it's so worth it.

 

 

 

p.s. Windows 98 isn't a bad OS; my father uses it although I know it lacks many of the functions I take for granted now on XP. The hardcore geeks will often recommend Linux, but as long as you update Windows and maintain your system, you should be fine.

 

 

 

p.p.s. Did you follow all of this? The rest of you are free to translate if I didn't explain it well!

I reccomend Linux ;).

 

 

 

Anyways, yes, you need an upgrade. I have a feeling your not a programmer, so most likley you wont need linux, and all it would do is cause you more trouble. So stick to windows.

 

 

 

http://www.dell.com should suit you fine

When my motherboard fried in my other computer (I mean it overheated and all was lost) I bought a new $350 e-machines with 512mb ram and a 40gb hdd on sale at best buy. So just look around, computers are on sale for cheap all the time :mrgreen:

Translation for Stupid People:

 

 

 

- Upgraded from slow crap to fast crap from NewEgg.com, maybe TigerDirect.com too.

 

 

 

- Have an ATX Power Supply, or your fooked.

 

 

 

- Had 256MB of RAM from a friend.

 

(Btw, DDR2 and DDR1 have a few % performance difference, 8% to be precise...fact)

 

 

 

- Don't buy a computer from a Shop, they rip you off, buy your own pieces and build your own PC, it's really not that hard.

 

 

 

- Do what jaklumen did because he's not a Hardware Geek, and get a friend who knows what he's doing if you unsure.

 

 

 

- Windows 98 is not that bad *cough cough*, his daddy uses it.

Dell should be fine to get a decent PC.
