I have a new Hp Stream, I use it for business and it keeps telling me I'm out of memory! i literally only have Microsoft office on it and that's it.. nothing else. it will not let me do any updates what so ever because the memory is full.. how can this be?
Let's first get our terms straight so we're both taling about the same thing ...
The term "memory" refers to the system memory sticks that are present in your PC. This can range from 2G, to 16GB or more -- depending on the capacity and number of sticks installed. This value does NOT grow or shrink over time.
The term "disk space" refers to the amount of used and free space on formatted areas, known as partitions, on your disk drive. The use space grows, and the free space shrinks, as files get written to the disk drive.
The differences are very important because dealing with shortages in memory or disk space are very different issues.
I believe what we are talking about in your case is "disk space" not "memory".
