Hey all. I just installed XP Pro and i love it! When using Win98, I could go to System and see how much of my System resources I had left. Usually it would be around 75%. How can I check this with XP?

I must admit, XP is SUPER cool. It's WAY faster than 98. I think I'm really gonna like it.

Hi,

Go to Start/run, and type RSRCMTR
Hit 'enter'.

Does Resource Meter appear in your system tray?

Doubleclick it.

Good luck,

Tony, that didn't work. Does Ctrl>alt>Del show the same thing though?

No, that shows (some) running tasks.

I'm not running XP, but I just assumed you might have Resource Meter.

Go to Start/Run, and type Msinfo32.
I know you have that, and, in Win98 at least, it also list your system resources.

Incidentally, see whether you have System Monitor (sysmon.exe). It does that as well.

But someone who's running XP as well would be much more useful than me here...

Good luck,

System resources really arent much of a concern with NT based systems. Sorta complicated to explain, I dont understand it myself. The Pcpitstop site does tell you the % free if you run the full test. (www.pcpitstop.com) For me it's always 90% free when I run the test, (Win2k/XP Pro)
