  • Lets see if I can explain this
    The laptop video card is using some of the Ram
    W7 and all startups are using some of the RAM
     
    and you have more usable than most.

  • Which Windows do you use? An 32 or 64Bit Windows? Does the Laptop use your RAM for the graphic memory?

  • Thank you  for your responce, I have windows 7 64 bit so it looks as though my video which is ATI mobility radion HD 4250 may be using .25 % memory.  Not a big deal though The laptop is really fast whith the dual processor.

  • Hi,

     

    Please read:

     

    The usable memory may be less than the installed memory on Windows 7-based computers

     

    More reference about RAM reports, please see:

     

    The 3GB-not-4GB RAM problem

     

    Windows Vista, Windows Server 2003, or Windows Server 2008 may report less memory than you expect

     

    Best Regards

    Dale

  • Have you checked the BIOS about the Memory sharing to the video card?
