Start/Run...type msinfo32 and hit Enter.

Total Physical Memory reflects RAM installed.

Where are you getting the data that makes you think you've lost RAM?

It isnt disappearing it is simply being used to cache programs so they run faster.

WHen your computer is on your ram slowly decrease. YOu can close out programs, but you will never get all 512Megs of your RAM back.

If your motherboard has onboard video, but you normally use a seperate video card, the onboard video may have got turned on again in the BIOS by accident, and is using 128M of RAM. If the system does have onboard video, check the BIOS settings for it.
