Solved computer is confusing

Post by paul 123 on 30th August 2009, 3:27 am

I'm very new to the computers and it's like trying to speak or understand a foreign language . ok so I'm a senior citizen at the age of seventy . what I want to say is I don't know the meaning of a lot of the word or procedure to do what I need to do . like I got a pop up message that I 'm low on virtual memory . but what is it and how do I get it. I have a sony viao and window xp. glad to have found this site
