Vista RAM problem. - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Mine uses under 512mb and still runs blisteringly fast on the end parition of my HDD.
Vista uses more memory due to it loading most things you will want to use at some point, this in turn makes the OS run faster.
However when a full screen application is running say a game etc or something intensive Vista will realocate memory to the main program running as their is no point in using ram space that will not be needed until the OS is being used fully again.

Hope that kind of explains.

1gb does seem like a lot of ram to be used, see what third party programs you have installed.

Having Media Player, MSN, IE etc raises the usage by around 150mb on XP but doesnt seem to make that much foa difference on Vista.

Duh?

Why do you need more than 50% free. It is doing nothing if it is free.

If you insist on disableing SuperFetch, you can do so under good old MSCONFIG.

As stated, Superfetch is a good thing and will keep your operateing system running more responsively. If you suddenly decide to run a program that requires alot of RAM then SuperFetch will relinquish over most of the memory it has been useing so it is free to run the program.
