  1. Im using a Compaq m2000 laptop. I bought my laptop with 1gb of RAM, now all of sudden, im down to 224mb of RAM. I tried to download a free trial from adobe but i got an error message teling me that i needed at least 1 gb of ram. About a month ago I was able to download a trial w/o an error msg. Is there someway i can adjust the size? What couldve caused this to happen?

    you can't adjust the size but you need to find out what program(s) is using up all of your memory. Press Ctrl, Alt, Del then choose Start Task Manager. Click the Processes tab and then look at what has the largest number under memory. The more programs you have starting and running with Windows the less available memory you will have.
