Help Fast please!

Hi, my computers running windows 7 home premium x64. im having a real problem with the RAM. my computer was of the vista transfer to 7 age. i got windows 7 as part of the free upgrade program. i have 8gbs of ram, and for some reason, it fills up to 90-100% for no reason. just running media players, and a web browser. i contacted hp about this problem and said either something has a memory leak, or my computer has something wrong. the warrenty is still on, but this isnt covered in it. please help and tthx in advance

Check system configuration for max memory. Should be set to zero.

Start system configuration click on Boot Tab then click on Advanced Options

Also does your Bios setup have any maximum memory settings ?

Click Start, then type "msconfig.exe" in the Search box. Open msconfig, click on the Boot tab, click Advanced Options and make sure that the circled option is set to 0.

Stress test your RAM overnight with memtest86 CD.

Avoid overclocking or any tweaks other than normal system settings.

You do not need ReadyBoost with 8gb of tested good RAM. It is just another page file and can cause conflicts.

well i know seeing as my computer is under 1 year old, i have a feeling that all 8 gb of ram is good. i still have a feeling that its a program with a memory leak. and why yesterday was sysmain.msc aka superfetch turned off? and when i typed it in the start menu, nothing for that search came up. right now my ram is at 26% and before this problem, wouldnt go over 30% on normal days. any other ideas? all help is very appreciated
