    I have problems with my Pc: it slows down if I go above 40% of using my 128 GB RAM, and it creates holdups or even problems switching between programs. Offen messages come "out of memory" even though there is ample Ram. Also the Windows explorer seems sometimes slow or even very unstable, for example, searches on the Nass or other harddisks often collapse or copying Files in CD are interrupted. here are the specifications:

    Check Task Manager and see what shows using up the RAM and Hard Drive.

    Maybe some of your memory is not matched that well? You can try Memtest86
    Create a bootable CD-ROM, Or a bootable USB
    Memtest 86 http://www.memtest86.com/technical.htm
    You have to extract it and burn it as an ISO " for the CD, It may take a while to test that much memory, overnight or a couple of days.
