HP Notebook Windows 7 Starter 1 Gb memory.
Memory seems to be taken up close to 95% right from start without use of programmes. In a disgnostic start-up with only 4 sysyetm files loaded and about 3 services, the Task manager still showed 450 Mb in use.
I've scanned and scanned and system seems clean. Tried memtest86 but computer does not allow (apparently) boot from CD, other then restore original system. Its own memory tester says 100% ok!!!!
How can this be?
