    Okay, thats the amount of ram your system has.......

    Vista needs atleast 512meg, more like 1Gig is normal back when your system was built.

    If you right click on computer in the start menu, and click properties, it will tell you how much you have..

    Ilikefree is correct. If you are using 32 bit, then only about 3gb of ram.
    If you mean 64 bit then a lot more can be used.
