Have a look at you resource monitor like whs said. Here's mine for example.

Note the "Installed" Memory (blue dot). Now note the "Total" memory (red dot), now look over to the Gray "Reserved" memory (blue dot) and note the amount. This is subtracted from your "Installed" memory. Now take note of the "Modified" memory (should be an orange box) - this is also subtracted from your "Installed" memory.

Now with that out of the way - On the "Physical Memory" line you'll see two numbers - MB In Use and MB Available - If you add those they should add up to your total memory "Installed" - minus the "Hardware Reserved" and "Modified" memory.

Example mine - 1302+4782= 6084MB. Now, if we add the "Hardware Reserved" and "Modified" memory 60MB (2+58= 60) to the MB In Use and MB Available (1302+4782+60) that equals all your installed memory - 6144MB. Which is what the "Installed" line reads

The other "simpler" way is just to add all the numbers under the color bars which would also equal all your memory installed

If you have less than that you are missing memroy.

Hope this helps.

I think you might be a little off Sygnus. Total and Installed do not seem to take "Modified" into consideration. Total is 6142 while Installed is 6144, the Hardware Reserved is 2 MB while Modified is 58. However Total only shows 2 MBs are missing.

Looking at my "installed" memory of 6144, if you minus the 2MB for "reserved" and the 58MB for "Modified" that will give you 6084 - which is what the the "Physical Memory" line adds up to. However the "Total" line only minuses the 2MB of "Reserved" memory - 6144-2=6142.

Anyways a simpler way to check if all your memory is in use is the just add all the numbers by the colored bars. Adding all of mine still comes out the 6144.
