Hi, Rick.

In the recent past, after I upgraded to Vista, I examined the actual
physical (i.e., not paged to disk) memory being used while I have had
some large FM documents open, and that was not an issue, as far as I
could tell.

However, I was thinking of bumping the memory up anyway, so I will try
that as an option and also see if it has any effect on the issue
described below - the local Fry's Electronics is having a sale on
notebook memory: 4GB for $35 plus tax right now. Not bad at all!

Hi Syed,

2GB of memory is not much for Vista. I would suggest at least 3GB.
