The commands I suggested should be entered at the command line.
dmesg gives you a bunch of info about your hardware and what is happening as
the computer identifies it. You'll have to look at it with a fine tooth comb
to catch some problems. For instance, if you had more than 1 gig of ram,
dmesg might tell you that it is not using all of that - but you would have to
know this is something that needs to be addressed, as it is not reported as
an error or even a warning... So, for some of it, you really need to know
what hardware you have.
top is just an tool that shows what processes are running, and how much cpu
time and ram they are using. It runs continuously until you hit the Q key,
