A friend called and his problem is that upon booting his iMac he gets a warning that he is low on memory and it tells him to "free up some memory please close a few applications". He has 8GB of RAM and Activity Monitor doesn't show anything special with the Finder and associated apps using 2.5GB or so of RAM. He can close the dialog box and everything seems to be OK but I've done tech support for a long time and never seen this. He has no backup from which to boot. I'm telling him to boot into diagnostics (D key or option-D ?) and see if the RAM is good. Any thoughts?
