What Gb Ram Do I Need For My Pc I Did A System Program Run But Dont Understand It Read It

What is 0.99 GB RAM? I added 1GB memory and it says 0.99GB??

Hi I just added 1 gb of memory to my pc two 512 sticks

anyway now my pc says it has 0.99GB ram? did i do anything wrong, or is this how its supposed to show as ram

Reccomend a 4gb RAM upgrade for eMachines W3609?

According to the manufacture, the max supported memory is 2GB. But that does not always mean it cant support more, it just means that the manufacture has not tested that computer with more that 2GB. In my experience, most of the time the system can support more that what the manufacture says, but I cant be certain that it is the case here.

If you use the computer for daily computing only, I honestly don't see how 4GB will benefit you anyhow. Having more memory doesn't make your computer any faster unless your system needs it. My computer previously had 4GB of RAM. I upgraded it to 16GB a while ago. Guess how much faster it was? Not faster at all. But I needed the extra RAM because I run a lot of virtual systems, and now I have plenty of memory to share between them.

Here is what I recommend, while your using your computer for what ever you do, open the task manager (Ctrl+Alt_Dlt) and go to the performance tab. There you can see just how much memory you are using. Im guessing you will probably be using 1 to 1.5 GB at the most. If thats the case, you will not notice an improvement by upgrading to 4GB.

But, you may be able to make the system run better by not installing more RAM, but FASTER RAM. If you download and install Speccy from filehippo.com you can see what speed your memory is clocked at, and you may be able to buy faster RAM with a tighter latency. Then you may notice an improvement.

But now its time for me to be brutally honest. This computer isn't worth putting any money into. Buy a nice new tower that comes with 4GB of ram and Windows 7 for 350 to 380 bucks at newegg.com.

Hope this helps,

I dont understand what i need to do in the program?

i need to make a program that declares a struct to store the dam of a football player (player's name, player's position, number of touchdowns, number of catches, number of passing yards, number of receiving yards, and the number of rushing yards). Declare an array of 10 components to store the data of 10 football players. Your program must contain a function to input data and a function to output data. Add functions to search the array to find the index of a specific player, and update the data of a player. (You may assume that input data is stored in a file.) Before the program terminates, give the user the option to save data in a file. Your program should be menu driven, giving the user various choices.

i truly dont understand what is needed to be done please help

I have 2 GB graphics card memory and 16 GB of RAM. Why can't my PC still play games in ultra settings or can I get my on-board graphics card to use the full 16 GB?

Since you say your motherboard can support 16 gb of ram, I'd guess that you have a fairly good cpu and that you'd also have Intel integrated graphics along with your graphics card. If you have a 3rd or 4th gen cpu @ atleast 2.6 ghz, thats way more than enough for most games out there..Now what about your hard disk?If you have a standard hard disk, specifically the 5400 rpm type, you're gonna get shitty gaming performance because it has ridiculously slow read/write speeds. I sold my old dell xps (i7,7gb ram,4 gb graphics) for the very same reason.Best thing you could do (if this is your problem) is to get a SSD and install whatever games/programs for which you want better performance onto that, because SSDs have considerably higher read/write speeds as compared to a hard disk. You will notice a vast improvement.7200 rpm HDDs are acceptable.Also,make sure to keep your hard disk defragmented at regular intervals.(DO NOT DEFRAG SSDs.EVER.).Next, we check how fast your ram is. You obviously have ddr3 ram and acceptable gaming speeds for ddr3 is 1600 mhz and higher(upto 2000+ mhz). If your motherboard only supports much slower speeds, then this could be your problem. The only solution is to buy a motherboard that supports faster speeds and buy faster ram as well..Next, does your pc have overheating issues? Try to keep it as clean as possible from the inside, no dust-clogged vents,etc. Spick and span it should be. If possible buy a cooling unit. Remove the side panels of your chassis, they only trap hot air and heat everything up. Try getting your cpu cooling paste replaced or changed for a more heavy duty type paste. This works wonders..Try downloading the latest drivers for your gpu. Its possible you may have outdated drivers that are incompatible with the games you're trying to play..Do you have other resource hungry applications running in the background? Use task manager to kill unnecesary tasks and then play..I can't think of anything else, but if you still have problems you can send me your pc's configuration and I'll try to see what could the issue could be.

Problem with Intel Windows 7?

For a few years now, I've had Windows 7 32-bit installed on laptop. The problem was that it is 6 GB RAM, and at the time, I didn't know that a 32-bit Windows can't read more than 4 GB RAM with some dedicated to graphics, etc...
Anyway, I've learnt a lot of about it and through research, I've made a custom Kernel that unlocks the additional RAM found on PC. (No I didn't use PatchPAE or any other ready to use RAM patch. I only used the bcdedit commands using cmd). So, on one hand, it worked. I got 5.86 GB usable instead of only 2.87 GB. On the other hand, Intel HD Graphics 4000 is a huge pain in the rear. If I disable it, I can't use NVIDIA GT 620M graphics to further boost performance. If I enable it, I just get a black screen when reaching Welcome screen. So, I customized the Intel HD graphics. I "updated" the driver using Windows XP Intel software, and modified a .ini to make it work for Windows 7 32-bit. Good news, it did. Bad news, instabilities were created in the system, and NVIDIA (with either old or new) drivers STILL can't be used, unless I update Intel back to the official and current patch, the one that results in a black screen. Other integrated graphic card brands don't cause me this much trouble. Why does Intel suck so much?! Also, where can I find an unofficial patch that can alter the software characteristics of Intel that allows 6 GB usage as well as NVIDIA graphics access?!

Will just disabling, not uninstalling, Mcafee make my computer run faster?

Do Not disable your anti-virus!
Using a registry cleaner can clean up your computer and then make your computer faster,Why?the reason is that there may be some regsitry errors and remnant,corrupt files and temp files in your computer to cause "computer slow".
Everytime you install and uninstall software on your computer and surfing online you create junk in the computer registry.over time, the registry can grow to enormous proportions, especially if the various programs you've installed do not do a good job of deleting and/or updating it's Registry entries.You need to scan and clean your computer with registry cleaner to make it fast.Good Regisry Cleaner will improve your computer and Internet performance dramatically!It even can speed up your computer by 300% or more!
There are some comparison and review of TOP 5 registry cleaners.

Does the size of RAM affect speed of computer? If yes, how?

The speed is equally (directly) proportional to your RAM and Processor. You might have heard that the processor speed is calculated in cycles/hertz. (2.8GHz) It is the time taken to complete one memory cycle (fetching the instruction, processing, executing, etc.) The processors nowadays are optimized to execute instructions simultaneously either by Hyperthreading(Powerful single core) or Multi-threading(multiple cores executing different instructions simultaneouly) or the combination of both. Semaphores are in place to prevent and cure deadlocks.(ref. Quad-core CPUs, etc.) The place from where the processor gets these instructions is RAM. The bigger the RAM, the better it is for the CPU (used efficiently). If the RAM is, however, low then the instructions need to be loaded from secondary storage to RAM and then to processor. The processor stays idle until all the files have been loaded.So, if you've got a hybrid CPU with a lot of RAM, you can load and execute huge programs/processes with ease. If you've got good CPU but a little low on RAM, your programs would take time to load but once loaded, will be good to work with until you call up other programs or features from it, which would require more memory (like plug-ins on a web browser).If your RAM is high but your CPU is slow, the computer will be slow overall.Other than these, other factors such as your Computer's architecture, hardware, etc. play a major role in determining your speed. They include (not limited to) IDE/SATA cables, Hard-drive access, RPM of the Hard-drive, Solid state storage, etc.Hope I helped.
