I'm sorry but that about sums up your problem. you are probably getting a low ram message because you are, in fact, low on ram. The above is what microsoft recommends as an absolute minimum. You currently have half that.
Can windows run in this state? Yes it can, can it use many features in this state. No, it can't.
