I have a Dell Inspiron 640m with 2gb physical RAM and tri-boot.
I usually leave it running for days without restarting but recently various programs complain of lack or memory and programs won't open until I close some other programs.
I can't figure out why this is as task manager usually shows usage of 1.5-2.3gb and even above 2gb shouldn't be a problem as I have set 6gb more hard drive for virtual RAM.
(I have tried removing virtual RAM but it did not help. Nor did cleanups such as CCleaner)
Why is my computer "dying"?
Why does (Virtual) Memory not add up to the PF value given?
Also, not needed for points but would be helpful for how to fix said problem. cpu.png
