1 My computer needs help. on Mon Aug 29, 2016 5:31 pm

So this computer of mine is fairly new, not even two years old yet, but it's been acting up for some time now.
I suspect it's got something to do with the new harddrive I installed a while back. My computer didn't come with alot of space. Just over 100G.
I bought this new ½ terabyte SSD and installed it. I now have two harddrives with some 600G in total.

Now I get messages from my computer everytime I play a game and keep google chrome up in the background. I'll translate what it says:

"Close programs to prevent loss of information.
Your computer has little available memory.
Save your files and close these programs"

It then shows me the name of the game I'm currently playing.

I didn't have this problem before. It used to tell me I didn't have enough memory to install new games, but never did it tell me it didn't have enough memory to run a game and google chrome at the same time.

I bet some of you are facepalming so hard at me I should be able to hear it in a couple of hours because you know something obvious I do not.
I only know enough about computers to install and play games, and use the internet. I'm completely useless at anything else related to computers.

Any help would be appreciated, cus I'm not gonna be smart enough to figure this out myself.

Well, when something goes wrong, my first inclination is to google it. copy the error message into google, and go from there. Very few tech people know offhand many things that just magically fix the problem, often, we google things.

My first inclination is to ask people I'm familiar with. Google would come later if needed. I don't usually look forward to clicking a bunch of links that take me to forumpages and whatnot to maybe find an answer to my problem. Rolling Eyes

Well, this time I might've been lucky. Found a thread where someone had the same problem. Hopefully their advice will work. Just restarted my computer.

Did it work, and was that the first thing you tried?

First thing I'd do is check that windows or whatever is detecting all the RAM you're supposed to have. If you have more than one stick it's possible one isn't sitting right after installing the SSD, just a guess.

So far, I've had no messages. They informed me on how to adjust how much RAM the computer can use. For some reason it was set to one gig maximum. My computer actually has 16, so I increased it.
