RAM Issues

Since liek halfway through the day my physical memory that's free starts out fine but then eventually hits 0 and the cache has about 2 gigs afterwards. Total of 3 gigs ram and vista using 1 gig so 2 gigs total for free use normally.

I can open some programs like another Internet browser but i don't wanna try opening anything large.

I tried uninstalling programs/games I didn't use anymore but it still dropped. So I tried turning off SuperFetch too which the free memory did stay around 200-300 mb's but that's it and after a bit it hit 0 which is right now.

When i open windows task manager the green box under the performance tab with the memory is at 1.38 gb's at the moment, which is not 1/2 filled but yet still at 0 free space of physical memory.

The first time it happened I went to log out since I didn't know what it was and then log back into my account on the computer but as I was logging out I got a blue screen and the reason it said was "Memory_Management" but have not gotten it since then.

Thanks

I have only been using Vista for a couple of weeks so am slightly hesitant about offering the following.
Boot Vista twice. Apparently it sets the ram different to other previous Windows.

that might be because you are using a x64 bit architecture, or are you talking about your page file usage. either way ram can be corrupt even when you first buy it. Do the memtest just to check dude
