Pull up the Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Delete).
Click on the Performance tab.
At the bottom, look under Physical Memory.
What's listed next to Available, is what your NOT using.

If you're not using all of your available memory, that's a good thing.
That means you have more memory, than you need, so there shouldn't be any system slow downs, due to a memory shortage.
You always want more memory, than you need.

One other thing to take into consideration is the fact that unless you are using a 64-bit operating system the full 4GB of RAM will not be recognized, it will only recognize about 3.5GB of that amount.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
