 I am using winows7. I have a 2GB RAM. But I find it almost full most of the time. How can I free up my RAM? When I play any game like fifa11 my pc stutters. I think it is for the fill up of RAM because my processor and graphics card is okay. I don’t even use any heavy application. So where is the problem? How can I free up the memory?

There are many ways to free RAM. GB RAM is enough if you do not use any heavy application. You can turn of the background programs which you do not using now. For doing these go to the start menu and press “Run”. Type ‘msconfig’ and press enter. Then a pop up box will be opened. Select ‘startup’ tab from the top of the pop up box. Then from the list untick the programs which you do not need to start when the computer will be opened. These are all running as your background programs. Then press ok. Now restart your computer. There are some other tips to free up the memory. Keep clear your desktop always. Delete all of your unused shortcuts from the desktop. Every shortcut eats up 500byte of your RAM. Never use any large wallpaper or screen saver. Use less desktop gadgets. Some gadget uses a huge RAM. Always refresh the desktop after closing any application. If you have to run more than one application at a time then set their priority. To do this, go to the task manager and select the program. Right click on it and then go to set priority. Select a priority.

Hi Ashley,

With 2 GB of RAM, you should've been able to play FIFA 2011 smoothly. And the basic Windows services won't eat up too much RAM as to cause the game to stutter. I think there are other 3rd party applications on your PC that cause this. Have you tried to open the Task Manager (press CTRL+ALT+DEL, then click Start Task Manager), click the Processes tab, and see which applications eat up most of the memory. It could be your browser, or your multimedia player. Just right click on the name of those greedy applications and click End Process. Moreover, you can keep the unused memory on your computer, well, free, by using memory cleaning applications. One of such application is Memory Cleaner (http://www.koshyjohn.com/software/memclean/), which is a freeware..

Good luck 🙂

     If your system can handle extra memory you can add it otherwise a fast USB device and Ready Boost faster than virtual memory on the hard disk can be used. For a 32 bit system, 4 GIG RAM can be added and to system maximum for 64 bit. However, you can use up to 256 of Ready Boost despite of the RAM on system. Open the task manager and click the performance tab to view the physical memory: Total, cached, available and free memory. There are several things that can be done to improve your system performance and speed such as  reducing computer restore space, temporary internet files and memory allocated to system recycle bin. However, this space cannot cater for the memory required by new installed games or programs requiring hire virtual memory. Also, the recommended system memory for graphics card is attleast 1 gb or more.

Hello Dear,

It is so easy to free up some RAM space.

In fact, all of the applications we run or open are stored in RAM, and use RAM memory.

It is very easy to free up RAM memory by closing all unnecessary files.

To do so, press  the CTRL + ALT + Delete keys.

This will open the task manager.

The task manager is a utility which allows you to control all active tasks on your computer.

Click on “process”, right click on all unnecessary tasks, and click on end process.

You will have to do this one by one for all unnecessary files. It will free up RAM space. Thanks.
