Is my 3g of ram being used

  Galdana 21:54 09 Sep 2008

Added a extra 2 sticks of 1g of ram, had 2 sticks of 512mb previously.
Have noticed, but never thought why, that the performance dials on the side bar never go much over 30%, so am I only using 1g of ram ?

System says that there is 3.00g of ram installed.

I'm sure I put them in the matched pair slots as stated in the manual.
Bought the sticks from Crucial after running there
memory checker.

Was the system info collected by MSINFO32? via search bar.

Just opened all the windows / programs that I have
on my pc and the memory performance dial has gone
up to 35%.
Obviously not running many resource hungry programs
