I have a new laptop: Compaq CQ60-615DX Notebook- 2gig Ram- 250 harddrive- intel celeron. I have a pop-up message that says, "low memory close all other applications and try again" when trying to play a dvd. When this happens I wasnt using any other applications my anti virus wasnt running, nothing was updating. I dont see a reason for low memory.
Taskmanger: cpu usage jumps from 1% to 85%
Phycial memory: 750mb to 900mb (I checked this when nothing was running)
I have only added 3 software programs which were not running. I have searched this forum and apparently others have had a hard time with low memory using widows 7. I'm willing to buy more ram but I would like to know first if that will resolve this problem. One post a gentlemen stated he had no other software added and had 8gig memory and had low memory (High CPU usage) trouble.
Thank you in advance for you time
