Ok,I have a laptop that has 248MB of RAM (saw it on control>panel>system) (In Classic view) and other system info programs like siw
but when i go to crtl+alt+del (task manager) then to Performance,in the PF Usage
its about more or less 340MB :thumbsup: :flowers:

What could this mean?
Isn't it that the PF Usage should be lower than the RAM listed on the system?
because that shows the amount of RAM leftover idle or declared "free for use"?

Are all of my system info false positive?
Is my RAM really higher than 248?

I would say that you have 256MB of physical RAM, with 8MB being used by your video card, and your paging file will be 1.5 times that giving you total virtual memory of 384MB (256 + 128). So nothing looks out of place there.

But also,the system (XP) regularly uses 128MB of RAM right?
so 248-128=120MB left
So that means,i can't install a program that requires 128MB of RAM
Will that work fine?or no?

I would try to install it anyway. When RAM is required for a purpose, some is pushed onto your DriveC: pagefile. Slower to access, but still there. Try it and see.
