There is no one right answer to this question. Basically, it depends on the Operating System (OS) that is running on the computer. Every OS has minimum system hardware requirements, which include memory, processor, disk space, etc. If those minimum system hardware requirements are met, and the OS supports the running of multiple applications at the same time, it should work. Performance, however, will vary according to the system hardware.

Also note that performance depends on the type of applications and the demand on those applications (design and virtual machine programs use much more). In some environments a computer user may open 10-20 different applications (or subsequent sub apps) in which not even a modestly performing computer system can handle. If the physical memory on the system is exceeded there is also paged/virtual memory which is cached on the hard drive temporarily. Almost all operating systems and applications will state their memory requirements, so taking those requirements into account can give you a general idea of the amount of memory you will need.

Crucial memory is the memory that you need in order to do the tasks you wish to complete using the computer. This will vary from person to person and business to business. There are many Crucial Memory Advisor applications and sites online devoted to helping a person figure out just how much memory is crucial for their applications.

You should not be too concerned about how much memory your laptop comes equipped with. You can always add external memory if you need it later on.

You can lower the physical memory (RAM) usage by running less applications as much as you can. Stop the applications from running in windows start up. Close the applications and services which you are not using. Increase the virtual memory of the system as it will act same as physical RAM. Here are few steps to stop the applications running at start up: - Go to Run and type in msconfig - Go to the Services tab and uncheck all services that you know you don't need (becareful dont uncheck the services you are not familiar with) - Go to the Startup tab and uncheck any startup items you don't need. - Hit OK and reboot.

MS-DOS itself does not support virtual memory. Some applications that use DPMI can use virtual memory; all you as a user need to do is provide a copy of the DPMI host.

You will need atleast 512MB of RAM for common application, but the general average now is 1GB. The minimum memory requirement for vista is 512 MB, so it's always better to have more than that.

Look for the memory that can work in your device. You also should consider how much memory you need to store the data you want to store and and how much maximum memory your device can handle.

Laptops have two types of memory, the hard drive (used to store your video, music, and photo files) and RAM (which affects how quickly your computer runs when multiple applications are running). The trend is for newer laptops to have larger hard drives. If you need extra space, portable hard drives are available for external storage.

The Kinect will not take any memory. However, updates will. But there is no need to worry about this because all updates are very small.

The least you need is 64M of ram but the recommended is 512M

In Java we need not allocate memory manually. The JVM would take care of allocating as much memory that your objects would require automatically.

Disk storage is used for storing data and RAM (Random Access Memory) is used for running applications and computer services

User Avatar

Most modern computers use Random Access Memory for their main memory. However you don't need Random Access Memory, Sequential Access Memory is perfectly adequate and has been used in many computers in the past for main memory (it just happens to be much slower to access than Random Access Memory as you need to wait for the location to come around again).

It depends how much memory you have on your phone, but you dont have to. If you like taking pictures then you might want to think about it(:

You will have to look for what memory you can buy that will be compatible with your Dell laptop at the manufacturer's website, then you can see how much you need.

User Avatar

First, you need to know what kind of memory your computer uses. Then find out how much memory you already have. You need to review your manual to see what type of memory your computer supports. Then open up the computer to see how many memory slots you have available. Once you find out that information you will be able to buy more memory and install it on your computer.
