  • Not enough RAM? maybe it's bombing your computer so it's only option is to shut down?

  • It is the memory that your computer uses to run programs, not the memory that you have for storage. without installing more (which you can if your pc has the room) you can try to set it up to allocate some of your storage memory for RAM...I've done it once but it's been a long while ago.

  • RAM=Random Access Memory

    do you have any security program on your computer? if not id recommend getting some. you may have a virus on it.i dont think not enough memory would make your computer turn OFF.

    try defragmenting your computer also.

  • MomNbabyGirl...I would think that a virus would crash it anytime and not just when she tries to run a certain program but you have some good ideas to rule certain things out. That reminds me that I need to defrag myself...thanks!
