Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1521 Notebook ?

Physical Memory Issue!

\015 Hello, I have recently purchased a 250GB HDD. I installed it into my Dell Inspiron 1521 PC Notebook system and I have installed Vista as my OS. I did this all yesterday. However, earlier today i noticed in my performance tab, in task manager, that I was using 820MB of Memory, but now it shows 1400/1917 MB of RAM is cached with only 44 or so free. I don't know what this means? I have not done any updates for vista since a lot of the time they fail. Does this mean I need new RAM? or upgrade to two 2GB sticks?\015
