    ravi: hi !
    I do not perceive a problem in the screenshot; But,
    If you are having performance problems, there may be a particular process on your computer gobbling up all the memory. To find out what is happening, run the following terminal command:
    Code:
    top
    The top command shows the current processes on your computer that are using the most system resources, in real time.

    Watch your usage for some little time observing any inordinate %MEM numbers.
    to exit the "top" command press the q key (for quit)

    The fact that you are using gnome sys monitor, lancelot menu, firefox and others eats memory.

    CPU usage for Firefox was pretty high. Watching vids at that time?

    You have 4gigs of memory!

    I have 6gigs and can't get this system to use it all, not even half.

    It's kinda a funny story, This fella i know has 16gigs, he payed serious cash for, he complains when any OS uses it, i then asked him why he purchased it, if he didn't want an OS to use it
