Technical Support
Post Limit:
I was having all sorts of trouble while Playing Starcraft 2. I Looked at my ram by right clicking on "My Computer" and it said I had 3gigs (2.74gigs Usable). In Task Manager it said I was using 1.13Gigs of ram while my laptop was idling and while playing Starcraft 2 or Diablo 2, it would jump up to 2.28gigs. I called my ISP and they made me do a speed test which I got an exellent connection wired and wirelessly, I then got a hold of HP and this is the help she gave me and it fixed my problems! It might just work for you!(BTW Starcraft and Diablo are the olny 2 things on this laptop, everything else has been removed!)
