have a problem on my Dell 8200 running Windoze XP Prof. SP1. I run my machine 24X7 because I do SETI analysis. But after about 4-5 days funny things happen on the screen and then I get an out of memory message. As soon as I reboot all is back to normal for 4-5 days.

Windows Task Manager shows 52 processes running. My machine has 256 MB of physical memory. I have increased my min & max. page memory up to 1024 MB per DELL customer service. Now they say I need more physical memory.

Does anyone have an idea what is going on? It seems to me that not all the code is being flushed out of the physical memory and it keeps building up until I get this error message.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks much,
Ken Janusz, CPIM

What windows O.S are you running again?....I would take the time to look on the internet for a ram defrag program eg''"FREERAM XP"..or something similar..It will defrag your memory regularely and makes use of your ram better..Other than that you might have a bad stick of ram..But I suppose If it is up that long and it is constantly doing work and you only have 256 mg..you need at least a defrag program for your memory!!!
