How do I get detailed info about RAM usage?

  1. As many of you may know, I'm always on the lookout for a new utility to help when fixing PCs, my next quest is for a program that will tell me with more precision where RAM is being used and by what.

    I normaly view RAM usage just with Task Manager. You can see how much RAM various running processes take up. But this hardly covers ALL RAM usage.

    I also jump to the Performace tab and take a look at the "Commit Charge" and sometimes this value is different from what is added up in the Processes tab.

    Case in point. A Dell laptop. The running processes as listed by Task Manager only add up to about 90mb, give or take. But head over to commit charge and it says 480mb is being used. So what the??

    How can I see where all this 400mb is going?
