My chrome crashes regularly. Always the message is there is not enough memory.
especially with zoom it is a nightmare.

I have Dell 15 laptop 1 year old, with 4 gb RAM. It boots in over three minutes.

I want to know will the problem be solved if I increase RAM? Should I go for 8 or 12 ? Or is it anything else? what can be done?

Thanks in advance

Hey Shobha,

Chrome is a known resource hog. Try the solution suggested in the following article: https://davescomputertips.com/chrome-other-browsers-that-hog-your-resources/

If still a problem, please get back to us with the type of CPU (processor), and HDD or SSD?

Cheers... Jim
