Excessive RAM use
I recently upgraded from a Packard Bell Denver 10/ 2GB RAM motherboard to an ASUS P5G41T-M/ 4GB RAM motherboard on my desktop, and kept my processor, a Pentium E2160 dual core, and I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium. With the Packard Bell motherboard, after switching on the PC all applications start to power down on RAM use after 2 minutes, and this is shown in Task Manager/ Processes as it happens. With the ASUS motherboard, there is no powering down of RAM use, but a powering up instead. Running the same applications, the Packard Bell usually settled at 550MB in Performance/ memory; the ASUS is 1.01GB. Why is this?
I have an HP Mini 3610/ 2GB RAM running Windows 7 starter and the applications also power down in Task Manager after 2 minutes.
What is the likely explanation for the ASUS/ 4GB RAM issue?
