Memory for a Dell Inspiron 570 PC
A user reported her Windows 10 system was running slowly. When I connected to
the system remotely to check it after the user had left for the day and closed
all the applications she had running, I found that the memory utilization was
78%. I knew the system was a Dell PC, but I didn't remember the model number.
I was able to determine it was an Inspiron 570 by right-clicking on the Windows
Start button and choosing System
. Under "Device specifications," I
saw "Inspiron 570". I also saw that the system had only 3 GB of memory
Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor 2.80 GHz
Installed RAM: 3.00 GB (2.75 GB usable)

Minecraft libraries failed to download
When I tried to install Minecraft
on a Microsoft Windows system using the
file I had downloaded, I saw the error message "These libraries
failed to download. Try again. org.ow2.asm:asm-all:5.2."
I then clicked on the link for "Installer" rather than "Windows Installer on the
website from which I had downloaded the installation file, which resulted in a
.jar file being downloaded. I right-clicked on the .jar file,
forge-1.12.2-22.214.171.12468-installer.jar, and chose "Open with" then "Java(TM)
Platform SE binary". I was then able to install the Minecraft client. When the
client was successfully installed, I saw the message "Successfully installed
client profile forger for version forge 1.12.2-126.96.36.19968 into launcher and
grabbed 1 required libraries."
Note: These are notes from an October 12, 2019 installation that I hadn't
posted, but I am posting now in case I encounter a similar error again.
