Question from Nikki W.: I have a terrible problem Rick. I took my HP desktop tower to our local computer shop because it wouldn’t boot up into Windows.
Long story short, the guy told me the hard drive was bad and he would have to replace it and then reinstall Windows 7.
I got the computer back yesterday and it seems to run ok, but after I use Chrome for a while I get a message telling me the memory is running low.
I looked at the System Information screen and it said there was only 3.4GB of RAM installed. I know for a fact that it had 8GB in it when I took it to the shop. Oh, and the sound isn’t working either.
My main problem is the guy stole some of my RAM and I need to know what I can do to make him put it back in since I can’t prove how much RAM was in it when I took it to his shop. And I hope you can help me get the sound working too. Can you give me some advice?
