I have a Dell Latitude D610 running XP and recently noticed a change in performance. The Performance Tab in the Windows Task Manager indicates Total Physical Memory = 515444, Available approx 100k, System Cache approx 131k.
These numbers had been hovering around 240k. I understand some of the memory is used by Windows, but the recent considerable difference has significantly affected performance.
When I restart the machine, these numbers initially are set in 9k range and slowly increase to the 100k area.
Is there a way for me to see what's really going on? The Processes Tab sheds some light, but the totals do not add up. Something must be eating up the memory.
