Default Whao... Full ram? Never saw this.

Never, have I EVER saw ram get to 80 or even 90% full! Take a look at this:

This is a CLEAN INSTALL of Vista. As you can tell theres not much running, just Pidgin, uTorrent, and WMP11(not playing anything). I might be over reacting, but that seems weird. Anyone else seen this in Vista?

BTW I have 2GB of RAM, if you don't notice it in the task manager.

That's strange. I have 1.5GB of RAM and I have about 50% free when I've got thunderbird, firefox and itunes running. I'm also using the windows classic theme so maybe that has something to do with it.

Default Re: Whao... Full ram? Never saw this.

if you have 2gb of ram so vista uses it ALL. its not how many programs you HAVE open it how many youve HAD open. for example a game tells the OS to put stuff inside the RAM but never tells it to take it out. vista will keep it in there until it needs more space. why buy 2gigs of ram when you only use it while gaming? the thing to look for is slow downs not how much ram vista is using

EDIT:also you got 50 processes going and 30% cpu usage your obviously running something that takes up a lot of something

only time I have seen full ram on my pc(1gb) is when i was running photshop, afterFX, and premier
all video\picture editing software from adobe

A game will remove data from the RAM when its finished. If it doesnt, then its a bug in the program called a memory leak.
