Available physical memory

Hello guys,

I installed a Windows XP x86 on my PC. But when I open the system information window in the System Summary tab, in the right-hand pane and at bottom the following are written:

Total Physical memory 768.00 MB Available Physical memory 270.41 MB !!

Why Available Physical memory is 270.41 MB please?

PS: My system is very slow and also very slower when start up. Isn't that less Available Physical memory the source of that slowness?

every program and process uses RAM theres thousands of back ground tasks going on which will all take tiny amount away. which is why you dont have much avaliable.

the fact that your system is slow is because you have such a low amount of ram in the first place. even back in 2001 1gb was the minimum most people had.

nower days 4gb+ is considered the minimum and 8gb+ is recommended for most users other than web browsers and email users.

basically more ram is your friend. its cheap and cheerful these days and an easy thing to upgrade.

Thank you very much. I installed a new XP and the problem (of slowness) became solved somewhat.
