the short version is that i have
AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual processor 4200+
2.2 ghz 1.93 gb ram
when i right click properties i have 33.9GB used and 264GB available
memory was added a long time ago
i never learned how to tell the computer to use more memory for RAM
I have found system properties, advanced, performance-visual effects, advanced, virtual memory
this is where I THINK I should tell my computer I want 8 GB of RAM used out of my avail memory.
I need 8 to run the set of programs i need to start working with. yesterday :(
I also need to make my XP into Windows 7.
Ultimately what i need is my xp to be a 7
my ram to be 8 with 50gb free space for use
so far i have figured out i need to clean install... i thik
i have saved everything to my portable harddrive
no clue where my xp start ups are but since i need 7 i dont know if i need them anyway.
i have hacked at my cmputer for 2 days. i need help
