Lately, mine has been saying 'Not enough memory to complete this action' (or something like that) when I'm downloading something. And it gives me a bluescreen a few times a month. I usually reformat and reinstall everything every couple months, so it's about that time again. Still love my computer.

How powerful are these machines? Would it be worth it to try to snag one for a younger sibling?

That message if from the gateway customer support after i told them my serial and model number and what i was trying to do.so now i KNOW it supports it just have to figure out why it's not working.the first set of sticks i got i rma'ed because i thoguht they may be bad...well i have a new set now and still cannot get this to work,so i'm sure it's the computer,just have to figure out what...as i said before i had elpida 4 gigs 2x2 pc3-8500 ddr3 1066 and bought corsair 8 gigs 2x4 pc3-8500 ddr3 1066....any help appreciated greatly
I don't know if you ever got your system to boot or not but I went with Gskill 2x4gb ddr3 1333 and believe it or not, but, boot's just fine without issues. If you like me to find you a link of the rams i used...lmk!

I have a fan problem. As soon as I start up my CPU fans kick in and max out right away. This is kind of nice as my computer has never ran this cool. But it's also kind of annoying and I have a feeling it's not good for the fans to be running 100% all the time. I'll put new thermal paste on the CPU tonight, it was due for that anyways, but I doubt that will help. Any ideas?

Please help! I kept getting a blue screen (several times a week) so I reformatted and reinstalled everything. Within 2 hours, I got another one. Operations are very slow and I don't know what's wrong. I've always had 2 fans blowing on the computer. And I've always used it with external monitor, keyboard and mouse. I have no ideas about what to do!

Sounds to me like a Hard Drive issue, are you using the stock HD? next time you get a blue screen, post your minidump file or just a picture of the BSOD.
