Success!

As of five minutes ago, I successfully installed a new memory chip into our laptop, giving it an extra gigabite of memory.

 

That may not sound like much -- and it isn't -- but one gigabite is a ton more memory than we had previously. Before, we had less than ten megabites available . . . and sometimes not even that much. The memory was so low I couldn't even open a simple Word document without causing the computer to act up.

 

In addition, Skype managed to update itself, so I am officially back on Skype, if anyone cares.

 

Frankly, though, I'm not as excited as I might seem. The memory is still extremely low and even as I type this, it appears to be filling up. We very well might have to buy a new laptop sometime, although right now it's okay.

Yyyyeah, something strange is going on with your laptop if you're running out of RAM so quickly. Unfortunately there are a ton of possible causes, so it's kind of hard for me to troubleshoot. =P

 

Though, I've been a little confused by these posts - is it hard disk space you're running out of, or RAM?

It's RAM. If it helps, I have an Acer Aspire 3680 with Windows Vista. We've had it since 2007, so it's pretty old, although it has been holding up pretty well despite how regularly we use it.

 

Right now, all I can tell is that the RAM is being inconsistent. Currently it is at 1.39 GB, but earlier it was around 400 MB. All without me deleting or adding anything, so I have no idea what's causing the RAM to increase/decrease so quickly.
