    I have a theory that Microsoft just botched Windows on purpose to make people think they need to buy more stuff to make it work right. Have you noticed that Linux doesn't have high reccomendations, but it also runs the fastest and most stable? Linux would be our answered prayer for stability and speed if there was more hardware/software support. As for the RAM, what does it say on bootup?
    You people who think you know everything really piss people like me off who really do know everything.

    When did you get this reading? With what app did you get this reading? It could have been an incorrent value. The more info we have, the more accurate our conclusions will be. I have problems with resources too with 192 megs PC100. As we speak, I am running 32% free (24,544kb physical). However, I multi-task like a mofo, hehe.

    my post says 128 meg
    Sandra and my Geforce driver both reported low resources free.
    I now have to use a MEM manager to free up memory

    Well, it's possible that you have a bad stick of memory. I don't know what else to tell you. All of my memory has a lifetime warranty and I bought it locally. I never hesitate to take a stick back just to make sure it isn't causing me problems.
