I have purcashed a new netbook, (a Sony Vaio) and on the whole it does what is supposed to do. But I have put on the screen the CPU monitor from windows gadgets. This shows that the main monitor runs right up to 100% at start up and then back down again fairly quickly.
But the smaller monitor stays on about 60%. Is that normal? I have one on the laptop I use at home and that is at about 35% or so usually.
Also can I change the wallpaper on these small machines? I have a few photos in I would like to use but the normal left click and use photo does not seem to be there. Is it because they are windows 7 starter?
The smaller monitor shows the % of the PC memory that you are currently using and this depends on whats running and how many windows you have open. You can reduce this by closing a few windows but as long as you keep it below 90% all should work OK. Its there so that you can monitor your usage of the available memory and when the % gets near to 100% you can either take action to reduce usage or add more memory. 60% is fine.
