Total Physical Memory: 768, Total Available Memory: 600???

Q: Total Physical Memory: 768, Total Available Memory: 600???

This computer is brand new so I have almost no processes running in the background, so why is 168 mgs of my memory being used up doing nothing? Or is that normal?

Preferred Solution: Total Physical Memory: 768, Total Available Memory: 600???

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hey guys,

This is my first post as i can usually find my answers elsewhere, but this time, ive had no luck.

I am running windows xp sp3 professional 32-bit and have recently upgraded my RAM from a 256mb(333) + 512MB(333) to a 512MB(400)+512MB(400) set up. When i did this upgrade i got an enjoyable multi-tasking boost so i again upgraded to a 1GB(333)+1GB(333) set up. Again another good performance boost!

But, over the last three days the pc has become slower and slower, today when i checked 'system information' i found that windows was recognising the 2GB physical memory as it had when i first installed it, but instead of having between 1600MB-1200MB of 'available physical memory' after a boot up, i was sitting on 52MB of available physical memory.

I tried reinstalling the two 1GB RAM sticks, changing their order, then returned to the 512MB+512MB set up but had the same problem, except i now have only 12MB of available physical memory! (Screenshots taken in system information are during this time)

I cannot find anyway to fix this and my computer has slowed to a virtually unusable state. Any suggestions would be fantastic!

Thanks in advance!


A:Avaiable Physical memory = 12mb, Physical memory total = 1gb

It's been a while since I had to troubleshoot an XP system, but I'll give it a shot. it sounds like you have a memory leak, which means a program that uses more and more memory. What process in Task Manager is using up the memory?

A:installed physical memory vs total physical memory

well do you have a seperate video card or is it on board? if it is on board it will use some of your ram for video. some for sound.

but it still looks a little low to me.

i took a screen shot of the physical memory block in task manager and wondered why there is a large gap between available and total. @ the time of this screen shot nothing was really on except stand windows stuff, nod32, antiviri and game booster 3. which also means some services and processes were cut because that is the nature of game booster 3. there might of been 1 windows folder open too but still? nothing intensive on or chat apps or anything of that sort. i'd also like to note that the memory wasn't listed under any of the programs in task manager. even explorer.exe wasn't taking the 500mb gab or near it. is this normal or this is a problem? i would like to get the most ram available as possible. never seems like enough. since i can't buy it i can try to reclaim what's missing unless this is the norm? if so why is it normal? i just don't know and google searching did not help. thanks for any your advice and help.

In XP, Total Physical Memory shows incorrectly in System Information. However, the amount shown in "System" from Control Panel does show correctly @256MB, but the amount from Sys Info from Accessories/System Tools/System Information does not, and shows 192MB, i.e. at exactly 75% of actual total memory on board.

I have 2x128MB with a 3rd slot empty. The modules have been removed and reseated, just to check that, but nothing changed.

General info: I'm running an Athlon 750 on an Asus motherboard. I just changed the HDD and went from 98SE to XP on it. The HDD is from another computer which ran on P4 system. It is partitioned x3. I reformatted only "C" where XP was installed clean. I actually do not know if this Total Phys Memory problem existed on the computer before I upgraded, as I hadn't checked it for a long time.

Is this familiar territory? I'm lost here and don't know why this would show up in this way.

A:Total Physical Memory incorrect

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

Do you have onboard 64MB shared graphics?

If you do that is where the memory is going.

A:Total/ Available Physical Memory Question

It is good too have minimal amount of physical memory available. This means that all your RAM is actually doing something, not just sitting there empty.

It is quite tricky to find out the real memory usage in Windows. The best way to get an idea is to look at the Performance tab is Task Manager. You see three values for Physical Memory there: Total, Available and Cache. Put Available and Cache together to get an idea of how much RAM is "free" for programs to use.

I've got a 5 yr old compaq that lately has been running really sluggish. I run regular virus/spyware checks using AVG and of course it's also doing real-time scanning. There aren't any processes running that I'm not expecting and none of them are hogging all that much memory. I noticed that my total physical memory is around 391 MB and it should be 512. I don't really know the expected difference between what the manufacturer states and what is given but I would guess it's less than 100 MB. I'm running Windows XP SP3. Are there any known problems that might be causing a sluggish computer or are my instincts correct in that I have a problem with my physical memory? I would also appreciate any other suggestions you might have for such a sluggish computer.

A:Total physical memory much lower than it should be

You're most likely using a video card that requires using part of main memory instead of providing all of its own private memory. (so it allocates a chunk of memory for the video card at system boot)

Now, I know for sure this is prob the wrong spot to post in...But never the less I'm hoping someone can help...

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit and the problem I'm having is my computer is not using its full Memory, like, It came with 3gigs, and I upgraded it to 4.50 gigs and it says I still have 1.56 remaining.

Now I've heard people say have I remaped it...But I dont know how. Apparently I can use my extra 1.56 thats...Not being used since I upgraded it...I thought it was automatic.

I'm just looking for a answer so I can use my extra RAM.

(I have looked at a hotfix and when I go to download it, it says a server error or whatever and I can't download it.)

Thank-you for reading, Prob not all the information is here but I'll be looking for a reply.

You will have to upgrade to 64bit to use all of the ram you will only be able to use 3.2 or something of the ram you have installed.

My current RAM (as displayed under My Computer > Properties) is 32MB smaller than my Total Physical Memory (as displayed in System Information). Is this because the portion of RAM reserved for my onboard video card is not shown under My Computer > Properties?


A:Why Do I Have Differing Values For Ram And Total Physical Memory?

Most likely that is the reason for it. You can usually check the amount of RAM reserved for your video card in the BIOS - but you may also be able to see this info by running "dxdiag" and looking at the Display tab.

Hello all.

I'm wondering if someone can help me get an understanding of this? As you can see this is a 64-bit OS. I'm getting these contradictions in Vista and not Windows 7 on the same machine. A picture is worth a thousand words so ... below are 6 snips, the top 3 are Vista and the bottom 3 are Windows 7 for comparison.

Any ideas? Thanks. (click a snip to enlarge)

A:Installed/Total Physical Memory Discrepancies

Hmm... Could it be a bug in System Information in Vista? From your snips, everything looks in order memory-wise, and the only discrepancy that I can find is that Total Physical Memory is being under reported by 4GB when you have more than this amount of memory physically installed, as indicated by Installed Physical Memory (RAM).

Unfortunately, I cannot check this for you because I have only 4GB installed, but perhaps someone would be kind enough to verify this for you.

I'm looking for a utility that can show me my total memory usage on the taskbar or systray. It should show the % or a graph.

For example, I have 4 GB physical RAM and my Task Manager is showing:
Physical Memory: Total = 4006, Available = 1000
System Commit: 3684/8004

I found some memory monitors, but they show my memory usage as 75%, which is the physical memory, not the total, which would be 46% . I've tried:

Taskbar Monitor win7-taskbar-mon - A very simple performance monitor that gives at-a-glance system performance info. - Google Project Hosting

I do not think that the page file (virtual memory) is utilized the same way as your RAM is (physical memory). I don't know why you're looking for a utility that gives you a combined statistic, but this utility says it displays CPU, RAM, and page file usage:

My total physical memory (64.00MB) is less than my available physical memory (126.73MB).

That's what System Information is telling me. What gives? "Total" should be more than "available."

I've an old Dell running WinXP which I only use for wordprocessing and email.

Thanks for your help.


A:Total physical memory LESS THAN available physical memory?

Total physical memory is the amount of RAM you have. (64 mb)

Windows xp automatically uses hard drive memory as if it is RAM if necessary. This is called virtual memory.

Sooo...you have 64 mb of ram, and an additional 64 mb of "virtual" ram from your hard drive.
There is nothing wrong...this is simply how windows xp works.

To start, I have Windows 7, on Sony Vaio laptop.

I have been working on the issues with the malware removal team, but now machine looks clean, I am still having issues.

When starting the computer and going to the task manager, I can watch explorer.exe start at about 18K memory usage and then grow constantly until it is running with almost all of the computer's physical memory after about seven min. I cannot get the context menu to show up after a few min by right clicking on anything.

I had been experiencing "freezing" while playing Eden Eternal (an online role playing game) before that, which made me consider malware and seek help here at BleepingComputer. The freezing has ended, last time I played on that machine at least, but now there seems to be some issue with the explorer.exe taking all of the memory. I haven't been using the machine since I don't trust that there's not something running in the background that shouldn't be.

In resource monitor there were "connections" that had "-" for both the name and the PID, but I don't know if that was the malware of if that's normal somehow?

Issue with explorer.exe seems to be limited to only one user account, and not the other one. That is to say that if I log on one of the other accounts explorer.exe behaves normally, as far as memory usage.

I just received my new Dell Inspiron 530 Core 2 Duo (2.2 gig, WinXP Home, 320HD, 1 gig RAM) a couple of days ago. It was ordered with the 128 Nvidia GeForce 8300 GS video card option instead of an intergrated video card so I do not have to share RAM anymore while playing higher end games.

I had intended swapping out the card with a higher,better one. But now I am confused about what I really have. The "dxdiag" display tells me I have "Approx. Total Memory: 512" Shouldn't that be "128"?

I know when you delete a file it isnt gone from your computer, its just made very very tiny. but overtime, do all the files start to build up? I have 143GB (initially) on my internal hardrive, but will that number ever decrease?

Also, if I got a new internal hardrive I would need to back up everything to my external hard drive first correct? theres no other way to transfer my files?

A:Total memory

1. Don't worry about the deleted files. They are marked as available space but they are still there in their entirety until the space is needed. If you do a disk defrag, they disappear too. Files of your own that you delete will hardly make a dent in the disk space because they are usually tiny compared to the total disk space. You would have to delete Gigabytes (which you usually don't have) to see it in the freespace amount.

2. Your second problem is more complicated. If you want to change the harddrive, you have to clone your current drive. Programs like Norton Ghost, Acronis, Paragon and a lot of others can do that. Yes you have to clone to an external drive (unless you have a second internal drive) - where else, since you take the disk away. You also have to burn a recovery CD to pull the clone back in. But all of that is explained if you study any of those programs. Here is some reading to give you an idea: Disk cloning - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

BTW: your topic is misleading. Disk space is no memory. RAM is memory.

This has had me pulling hair for weeks. I bought this computer, 3.05GHz, 1.50 DDR RAM.
When I first ran this, I'd go days without having to reboot and NEVER see a memory error. The last month I have been running out of memory in a matter of hours for no apparent reason. Some reason my memory is totally destroyed, or is being leaked or something. I didn't upgrade to such a good computer just to have it run down and work like junk. I have no idea what to do to fix this, the XP Support File was no help at all.

If anyone has any idea, PLEASE help me take care of this disasterous issue. I have to reboot every three hours! That shouldn't be happening with 1500 DDR RAM.

A:TOTAL FRUSTRATION (WHere is my Memory going?!)

Do this:

Download Spybot - Search & Destroy from http://security.kolla.de

After installing, first press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.
Next, close all Internet Explorer and OE windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds.

That ought to get rid of most of your spyware.

When you've done all that, go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'Hijack This!'.
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
Press that, save the log somewhere, and please copy & paste its contents to the forum.

It will possibly show other issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

Could someone please give me both a simple definition and a long explanation of what "approximate total memory" is and how it relates to a pci-e graphics card?

How does the number given in dxdiag not equal ram or ram + graphics card?

A:Approximate total memory

The easiest explanation is that the memory is allocated dynamically - so it changes from minute to minute.

Because of the way that the Windows Display Driver Model (WDDM) is designed (allocating memory dynamically), you can't get exact memory numbers for your video display - because it's changing as the report is generated.

This question I'm sure has been asked before but I just installed an extra 2GB (2x1GB) of memory in my system for a total of 3GB. My original total was 1GB (2x512mb). After installing the extra memory I checked my BIOS which indicated that there was a total of 3072mb but when I went to CONTROL PANEL and then SYSTEM it states that there is only 2.66GB of RAM. Is this normal? Or is there a problem? Computer does run faster but just worried about the missing 1GB of memory.

A:Win95 not recognizing total memory

When the total is taken of all the memory used by processes, it does not add up to total memory used.

Is this normal?

I am trying to find places to reduce memory as it has spiked over the past 3-4 days.

(I used resource monitor and then copied all the lines to excel where I took the totals. The excel file is attached.)

A:Sum of memory fpr processes not matching total

Adding up the memory usage of processes rarely produces useful results. It certainly will not add up to the total memory usage of the system. There are a number of significant users of memory that are not processes. Memory usage in Windows is far too complex for such simple additions.

Sorry, I don't have the capability of reading excel files on this computer. But I don't need to see the numbers to know they will not add up.

A:usable memory showing 2.64 while the total installed is 8GB ...

Hi I believe you are subject to the 32 bit memory limit that occurs within Windows. The limit is 4GB, so to use your 8GB fully you would need a 64 bit OS. Mark Russinovitch, a highly respected individual writes this... 32-bit Client Effective Memory Limits While 4GB is the licensed limit for 32-bit client SKUs, the effective limit is actually lower and dependent on the system?s chipset and connected devices. The reason is that the physical address map includes not only RAM, but device memory as well, and x86 and x64 systems map all device memory below the 4GB address boundary to remain compatible with 32-bit operating systems that don?t know how to handle addresses larger than 4GB. If a system has 4GB RAM and devices, like video, audio and network adapters, that implement windows into their device memory that sum to 500MB, 500MB of the 4GB of RAM will reside above the 4GB address boundary, as seen below:The result is that, if you have a system with 3GB or more of memory and you are running a 32-bit Windows client, you may not be getting the benefit of all of the RAM.  On Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista RTM, you can see how much RAM Windows has accessible to it in the System Properties dialog, Task Manager?s Performance page, and, on Windows XP and Windows Vista (including SP1), in the Msinfo32 and Winver utilities. On Window Vista SP1, some of these locations changed to show installed RAM, rather than available RAM, as documented... Read more

I have XP.

System Properties say 496 MB now, which I believe is fine and correct.

However, going to Start>Help & Support >Tools>Advanced System Information>View Detailed System Information, it says :
“Total Physical Memory 512MB”
“Available Physical Memory 162MB”

This doesn’t seem correct to me, but I don’t know what it should be and have never looked at those figures before. My memory was running low before, but I don’t know how my computer is using 350MB of memory today when it was only running low on 256MB yesterday.

Are the stats I have ok? I think memory issues might be more complicated than my simplistic interpretation allows for-just worried that my system isn’t accurately reading my new memory.

The technical support guy at the place that I bought it & installed it gave me the helpful answer of “I don’t know”.

A:Total Memory vs. Available Memory + New Ram

You were using more from the page file yesterday?? I have a gig of ram and a little over 600 megs free. It sounds about right to me.

I recently upgraded my Windows 7 laptop from 4GB of physical memory to 8 GB. The Bios immediately recognized the added memory but it appears the Task Manager physical memory has not changed and only recognizes ~3.5 GB of available memory. Is there a way
to have Task Manager recognize the added memory? Is the fact that the Task Manager does not recognize the added memory mean other functions are not recognizing the added memory?

Hello, this is probably an age-old question, but is it natural for a computer to only use only a portion of its installed RAM? I'm aware that a 32 bit system has limitations on how much RAM can be used, but it seems ridiculous to have 8GB of RAM installed and only 3.21 GB total.

On my last reboot I enabled Memory Remapping in the BIOS, but it didn't affect the values below.

Here's my system information:

OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601)
Processor AMD FX(tm)-6100 Six-Core Processor, 3300 Mhz, 3 Core(s), 6 Logical Processor(s)
Video: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti 1GB

Here's my RAM info:

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB
Total Physical Memory 3.21 GB
Available Physical Memory 2.12 GB
Total Virtual Memory 6.42 GB
Available Virtual Memory 5.27 GB
Page File Space 3.21 GB

Are these values natural? Is there anything I can do to optimize RAM usage a bit more? Was there any point in getting 8GB of RAM when the values are this low?


A:Question with RAM usage; 8gb installed, 3.21 Total Physical

You're running a 32bit OS with 8GB of RAM? Its not ridiculous, its physically impossible. It doesn't have the room.

It's a address space issue which is essentially the amount of room the system has to "address" everything it needs to.

In short in works something like this:
In a 32 bit system, it has 4GB total space to work with.
Within this 4GB envelope it needs to address or map the hardware. For the most part, we're talking about physical RAM installed and the GPU.

So if you have a 1GB GPU, that takes up 1GB of space. So 4GB address space minus 1GB for the GPU leaves you 3GB left to work with.
You have 8GB RAM installed, but after addressing the GPU theres only room for 3GB left. Therefore, thats all the system can address or use, regardless whats physically there.

Now, if this is a 64bit OS the addressing space is much higher and can allocate everything with ease.

There are ways around it and get the system to see it, but its not the best way to go. Especially since you Windows Key works for both types 32 and 64bit.
I would re-install the 64bit version and activate with your key. this will solve your issue.

I unstalled Comodo Time Machine after I realized I had made a mistake in setting it up, and then when I tried to re-install it (there was no option to go back and rectify my mistake), it told me the software was "already installed on my computer" and would not re-install.
I used Revo Uninstaller to remove the program, then CCcleaner to tidy up, and also went thorough my registry with CCleaner and manually checking for breadcrumbs and stuff CCleaner tends to miss.

BTW, specs:
I am running XP Professional Edition, service pack 3.
I use Rising Anti-Virus (never had a problem).
I've also tried Glary Utilities (desperate) to no avail.
CTM still thinks it is installed on my computer. I am sure there are little lurking elements somewhere where I can't find them with my limited skills. When I startup, there is a CTM splash screen detailing how it is "creating a restore point," although no other related files to this can be found, as far as my digging has shown me. Additionally, I have tried re-downloading the program and reinstalling, to no avail. Still tells me the program is already installed.

I would like to get rid of the splash screen, and remove all remaining parts of the program. This make be as simply as deleting the logo file from my system, but since I like to run a clean machine I want to make sure to scrub the rest of the traces, if there are any. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Hello,I recently encountered what I believe to be a spyware/trojan problem on my laptop which is running Windows XP. The problem started about a week ago when a fake security alert came across my desktop saying "Attention! System has encontered a potentional problem..." I ran Spybot Search and Destroy and Malwarebytes Anti-Maleware (I already had these programs installed). These both removed a number of problems. I also have McAfee anti-virus software running. I also ran a scan with this. As of now the fake desktop alerts are gone, however, when I run a Google search and click on a result, I am redirected to some random website. I also have tried to reboot my computer in safemode but when I do this the screen gets hung up on the follow driver and goes no further:Multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)parition(2)WINDOWS\System32\Mup.sysDDS (Ver_09-12-01.01) - NTFSx86 Run by Tiffany at 16:38:16.95 on Sat 01/09/2010Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_13Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition 5.1.2600.3.1252.1.1033.18.502.141 [GMT -6:00]AV: McAfee VirusScan *On-access scanning enabled* (Updated) {84B5EE75-6421-4CDE-A33A-DD43BA9FAD83}FW: McAfee Personal Firewall *enabled* {94894B63-8C7F-4050-BDA4-813CA00DA3E8}============== Running Processes ===============C:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k WudfServiceGrou...

my laptop uses alot of memory. around 50%. how can i lessen the big usage? i have 2gig ram.

A:My laptop uses a big part of my Memory (physical memory)

This is normal for windows 7, it uses the memory in order to prevent un needed read/writes from the drive. This is actually something you want with a laptop because unless you have a solid state drive, laptop drives are traditionally very slow.

I don't understand why people get so upset when their memory is actually being used, that's what it is there for.
If you open a large program that requires more resources windows will unload nonessential processes from memory to the pagefile while that program is active.

Windows 7 is much better at managing memory than it's predecessors.
1 gig of used ram is pretty much expected.
This is why 1 gig is the minimum required per microsoft's specifications.

I do have a question?

We have a space in harddisk ,called virtual memory.  In addition to DRAM ,Operating System  uses this  virtual memory to store and run applications. Virtual memory makes up for the need of space required.

I think that the physical memory DRAM is not needed. Virtual memory inside the hard disk is  sufficient. 

By avoiding DRAM we  can save the cost of  physical DRAM. We can also save lot of time that is involved in associating the pages between DRAM and Virtual memory.

Of course , virtual memory provided by the hard disk is slow. But  in current trends we can research , to increase the speed of magnetic drums being used by the harddisk to store data. 

Thanks ,

If I choose to rais the amount of virtual memory the system uses does this meen that the computer will not show as much Physical Memory or not be able to utalize it?

A:Virtual Memory And Physical Memory

Virtual memory is actually not memory. It is simulated memory area on the HDD. When you are using a lot of virtual memory, your system will actually run slower. HDD access is considerably slower than RAM access. The OS will page memory out to the HDD to make more physical memory available to itself or applications, as needed.

I have a very simple data base 3 tables

Product table with 2 fields productid and productdescription

Sale1 is the basic information of a sale invoice number and who items are sold to

Sale2 is the details and shows qty , item, price, and GST charged if any (some people or organizations are tax exempt so it becomes zero.

I've got my form and subform to run correctly

I've got my report to print all items correctly but I can't total the value

the line value for each item is a textbox

=Sum([QTY] * [Saleprice])*([GST])+([QTY] * [Saleprice])

This does return the correct value for that line item.

HOW can I correctly total the sum of all items into the reporrt footer???

HELP please the sale is tomorrow through Sunday.

My first post.I have added new memory, or rather second hand memory, to my Dell Precision 490, Windows Pro 7 64 bit system. (I bought an upgrade from XP Pro 32 bit) I have also upgraded the BIOS.

The new memory is two 4 GB sticks of FB ECC. In Setup the memory is displayed as two 2 GB sticks. I took out all the memory and just re-inserted the two 4 GB sticks. The system on re-boot reported no memory. I am thinking that my purchase is faulty, but then why would it be reported as two off 2 GB sticks when installed with the other memory if it was faulty?

I have download PC wizard 2010 and it reports Physical Memory as being 13312 MB which is what I should expect 13 GB. (2 off 2 GB, 2 0ff 4 GB and 2 off 512 MB). Task Manager reports Physical memory as 5117 MB ie it doesn't recognize the two 4 GB sticks.

Control Panel under System reports Installed memory as 9 GB (5 GB usable) recording the two 4 GB sticks as being 2 GB sticks! I don't understand why only 5 GB is usable and don't understand whether the memory I have bought is defective or not, or whether Windows is misreporting how much memory I have installed. Does anyone know what is happening?

A:Physical memory and available memory

Check the BIOS, how much does it report? Does the motherboard support that line of memory and its capacity?
