Guess I should have listened more carefully in Vocational school... I learned how to look up how much memory you have and how much you are currently using in windows XP but I forgot where to find it.

I want to find out how much RAM my computer is using. I know there is a place in XP where it tells you excactly... but I cant remember the steps in which to get there... seems like a remember using the command promt but ive forgotten the command to use.

Thanks in advance for your help.

hold ctrl+alt+delete simultaneously. This should bring up task manager. At the bottom of task manager, it should say what percentage of your physical ram the computer is using.
