    A low memory msg and a win crash on a Dell laptop


    1st off this is still on the same Dell Inspiron 15-3541 laptop OS Win 10 Home 32bit.
    Before I get into the latest problem. This laptop is having issues with a buzz in the sound and the USB ports are acting up, in the fact that none of the USB flash drives or the HDD in the external USB case are seen by the laptop, when the drives are plugged in after the laptop has booted and the desktop is up and running. The only way to get the laptop to see the flash drives and the HDD is to reboot the laptop with the flash drives and the HDD plugged in. Then the laptop sees the flash drives and the HDD.

    Now for current problem. I don't know if the laptop is infected with something. I am getting win error reports of "low memory", "zaar.exe error message", And "close prog's, low memory". See screen capture pictures bellow. This is driving me nuts. I am about ready to pull the internal 500gb HDD and smash the laptop with a hammer and Wait until Tue and buy an other good used laptop from my friend that runs the local pawn shop. He only takes in the newest and best conduction laptop's, towers and tablets. Also sometimes Win just stop's working and freezes then put's up the blank screen with only the blue back light, and the only thing to do is hit the power button, turn the laptop completely off and reboot. 1 other thing. Firefox just crashed and I almost lost everything that I had just typed. I had just saved all of this that I typed to a text file just before the crash. So all I had to do is past in the text and reload the pictures.

    PS: Firefox just crashed again just after I hit the post button

    Memory Low - Suddenly Appearing On Win 10 & Crashing My PC

    Am getting a Memory Low message - Suddenly Appearing On Win 10 & Crashing My PC

    • I have used the same number of apps open previously without a problem
    • I have performed a test for RAM flaws

    There is no help on the Win 10 page for this issue that I can see.

    Is there a way to increase virtual memory recommended by MS [not a 3rd party].

    thanks

      • Click on View all in the left pane of the window.

    If the issue still persists, I suggest you to check if the computer is using its full memory.
