    How do I check memory usage of all processes

    Thanks for the post. The information I gave in the first post was extracted from that page. Sorry, I cannot upload a file because that might set off alarms. :eek: I guess not everything is shown to the end user, especially the core processes and drivers. They must be using the "missing" portion.

    How do I check memory usage of all processes

    Hi there, I'm currently troubleshooting performance issues with my work PC. Even when I am not doing much, the memory usage is quite high. I have 4GB RAM in the system (128MB allocated for the GPU, I believe, as System Properties window shows 3.88GB memory usable) and am running Windows 8.1...

    Refresh Windows 8 - Create and Use Custom Recovery Image

    Well, since it is a tablet, I don't think providing recovery "discs" is a good idea. I want to fix the recovery functionality. But I'll see what I can do with what I learned from the above posts. Thanks.

    How do I install Windows 8.1 on my Dell Latitude 10?

    How do I install Windows 8.1 on my Dell Latitude 10?

    I downloaded Windows 8.1 from MSDN. When I tried to run the setup from Windows, it said the OEM key is not supported with Windows 8.1. I surely can use a retail key from the MSDN account but that is my office account, and I should be able to use the key that I paid for anyways. Is there any...

    Solved Dell Latitude 10 Essentials: cannot use System Recovery

    Fixed it. I just ran the Windows setup from within Windows. I used a flash drive, bootable with Windows 8 32bit. but maybe that was not necessary. wonder if an mounted ISO file alone would have been enough for this. This allowed me to install Windows 8 over 8.1 Preview. Didn't ask for a...
