    Press Windows key + r and type dxdiag.
    It should come up with this


    Locate the memory part([Only registered and activated users can see links. ]) Its under the Proccesor.

    I saw that my laptop has 8192mb of Ram
    If you dont know how much gb that is reffer here:
    Code:
    1GB 1024
    2GB 2048
    3GB 3072
    4GB 4096
    5GB 5120
    6GB 6144
    7GB 7168
    8GB 8192
    Now that I know I have 8 gb ram, I will be safe and allocate 6 gb to minecraft.(leave at least 1gb to run OS)
    If I wnat 6 GB I have to rember that half the 6144(6gb) is 3072(3gb)
    So I open up notepad and the this code:
    Code:
     
    javaw -Xmx6144m -Xms3072m -jar "C:\Users\Marc\Desktop\Minecraft.exe"
    The bold and underlined text is what you change. For the first one you put the mb of ram you want, mines 6gb so thats 6144mb. The Second one is half of what you want, so mines 3072(3gb).
    And the 3rd(my name) you put your User name on your pc.

    Now you go to the start menu and serch CMD and RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR!!

    Then click the top left cmd [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] and go to edit>paste(puush dosnt let me take a picture of cmd?)

    Now you should see the code you just made... press enter

    Your minecraft client should open after about 5 seconds and your done!

    You can also copy it into the System32 folder, CMD looks for commands there by default also.
