does anyone know of a way i can find out what is killing my memory on my PC? i just installed 256MB of RAM into it and now that i'm up to 384 MB it still crashes almost as quick as when I had 128. is there a program that can detect what is sucking up my resources? any help would be greatly appreciated...

What software are you running? Do you have all the software patches and upgrades? I remember a version of Windows95 that wouldn't release memory too had to get the patch to fix this...

Why did you buy 256MB more memory? Were you getting memory full errors or was the PC "bluescreening" with an error?

My PC was acting up so I increased the memory. Didn't help...I had to do a rebuild (reinstall the operating system)...during the rebuild I noticed I was still having problems so I went back down to 128MB...after the install my PC has been running fine. Added the other memory to go to 256MB and my system would crash...come to find out my motherboard can't handle that much memory even though the specs say it can...oh well...sold the memory...PC is running fine at 128MB...

I'll be going on vacation so I won't be able to keep up with this until the week of Apr 23rd...if you are still having a problem, feel free to contact me...Guy(NH)
