Default New Girl

Hello community, my name is Ella and I am the latest addition to this beautiful community.

BTW, anyone here who's using an ACER Aspire V5-132P laptop? I am always getting a pop-up notification that my computer is running out of memory eventhough I am using an external hard drive to save my content. My google chrome automatically closed after I choose to exit the message.

WELCOME!!

In this case memory may mean ram. Chrome is a notorious memory (ram) hog.

Try opening task manager and looking for how much free memory (ram) you have.

Welcome!

As to your popup, we need to understand whether the issue is with your computer's memory (RAM) or is it a shortage of storage (disk space)? When you get it again, press the PrtScrn key on your keyboard to take a screen shot to post so we can see what the actual message is.

Here's the error message, all the application will automatically be closed once I chose to exit. This is happening to me on a daily matter.

Definitely RAM. How much do you have installed on your laptop?

What are you running in the background?
Can't just be because of chrome, 4 gigs is enough for casual use.
Can you send an image of your task manager?
You might have a serious resource hog running that you are unaware of.

Welcome btw.

One other thing you could check is to see all the programs you have starting up with windows that are running in the back ground.

Not sure if you are running windows 7 or 10, but click on start button in task bar and in the search box type msconfig. Then click on the start up tab, and check in there for any programs that you don't need to start up with windows and un-check them.

hope that helps

Welcome aboard

I suggest first checking for malware. After making sure the system is clear, you need to check Windows Task Manager by clicking ctrl+shift+esc and see the processes and their memory usage. Some tasks might not show up, so click on features like "show all processes" or equivalent to show them all.

Next steps come after that if this does not show the culprit.

I use this site for sharing images on forums:

When you have uploaded the image, copy the "Hotlink for forums" link and insert it here.

Thanks @BikerEcho, here it is.
What do you think is the issue on my RAM?

Yeah your PC is using up a lot of RAM. But i wanted to see on what.
Check the processes tap, sort by memory and take a screenshot.

Oops, the wrong page

Click on the Processes tab then arrange the Memory column to descending by clicking on it as needed. If there is a "show processes from all users" option in the same tab, click on it too.

This will show what is eating up the memory, if it is something not hidden like a malware or something.
