I am operating a 1.8 gigahertz machine with a AK31 Socket A AMD processor based DDR main board. Running currently with 756mb of memory with a WIN98 operating system. I recently added another 256mb to push it up to over a gig. But for some reason I kept getting conflict with Norton System Works (NSW) stating I did not have enough system memory. I figure it was NSW so I uninstalled the program. However I still had issues with performance. It didn't run any faster than when I had I had the 512mb that originally came with the board.
So now I have taken one chip out and I'm operating with 756mb. However when I check the resource meter I still seem to be using about 2/3 of the System/User/GDI resources. Shouldn't adding more memory have alleviated these issues?
