I have a HP DV4-2126TX with Win7 OS. It has 2GB RAM.
However post startup and while idle , 50% of the RAM is occupied.
I tried disabling all the unwanted process at startup. Here is a list of what is running in startup:
Intel Common user Interface (3 processes)
Catalyst Control Centre
Alps pointing device driver
HP Quick Launch Buttons
HP Wireless assistant
Nero AG NeroCheck
Virtual Clone Drive
Java Platform Updater 2.0
Previously my laptop would consume around 38% RAM when idle now it consumes 50% when idle. What should I do to get back the available RAM?
