Windows 7: Is this Normal? Low usable ram, much lower then install

Is this Normal? Low usable ram, much lower then install

Is this normal? It says I have 1.50GB RAM installed, but only 738MB available?
Look at the screenshot for more information

Nothing to worry about... That's Just the ram that is not being used or cached.

Here's mine

Aero did you change the Windows 7 setting for your Pagefile size?
It don't seem correct and looks a little lower than default size for the amount of memory you have.
That may be the reason you are using more of your conventional RAM.
If you upgraded your memory to 2 GB it will be better and closer to my numbers.
Is it causing you trouble?

Nope, I didn't change the setting of the Pagefile size, I don't know how anyways .
So, from your screenshot and reply, what your saying is that the available memory should be 1GB?

It's not actually causing trouble, I just noticed it when I opened up System Information for something else.

Is there a way to change the pagefile size back to default or what it should be?
