By turning off running programs.. You are using 274mb of the total ram, to increase the amont of avaliable ram you need to shut down running prosesses.

it's simple: running programs use memory to store temporary information. and by turning them off you will gain the space that that temporary information took up in your memory.

And I apolagise if it may sound like I'm telling a complete idiot but the simplest explanation is often the best one.
