ya nothing bad will happen to the computer if you use all your ram it'll start using the hard drive which will make the computer really slow, but it won't blow up or anything

Default Re: RAM usage

download a program such as freeRAM XP pro and that tells you how much is free and how much is used. If you want to slow down the computer then run norton or mcafee anrivirus with as much bloatware as you can find. That should slow it down a pretty good amount.

Default Re: RAM usage

just use ctrl+alt+del and click on the performance tab and you can see the mem usage.

but do you really need a new computer or do you just want one? maybe your dad won't buy you one because he sees no need for it.
