    I'm working with a Dell Desktop Inspiron 5305. I did a Clean Install about 4 months ago and basically the install did not go right, it's had problems since.

    It asked for parameters when I did the last install. I think I put in too little because since then it always says that I don't have enough memory when in fact there is a lot of memory on the computer.


    I could be very wrong here, I'm just a person flying by the seat of their pants.
    I've deleted all games, music, anything that takes up space and still get the same error. I can't run scans or download anything because there is not enough memory.

    Now, IE doesn't want to load. So I was gonna start all over by wiping it clean. I was trying to get a jump when it got to the parameter spot.

    The thing is I did a clean install over a year ago and it went beautifully. It never asked for the parameters that time and for some reason the second timet it did.
    Any advice is greatly appreicated.

    What "parameters" are you talking about? There are none. For a "clean" install, you wipe the drive, repartition and reformat, and you install. There are really no other options until you are asked where you live.
