Help me out here, My Toshiba Satellite came with an inadequate 1GB of memory. I recently upgraded it to a healthier 2.5GB. Before the upgrade, at idle, (no programs running) the computer would use about .7 to .8 Gig of memory. After the upgrade, at idle, the computer NOW uses about 1.2 to 1.3 Gigs of memory. What is the deal? It runs better now. But does this new memory allocation/usage mean that my computer was running in a sort of "gimp" mode when it only had 1GB of memory? I've done scans and I don't think I see any suspicious programs running. Was I sold a computer that couldn't even function at 100% with no programs running?? If so, that is truly pathetic. If not, any ideas?
