I had extra ram put in my laptop but it does not show under the sytem option in the windows control panel...Is there anyway I can see the total ram?

Also when using a discussion forum the memory usage goes up to 40 k just for a plain text forum in IE - is this normal as the memory usage seems to creep up and up..

Finally are there any idiots tutorials on how to read the data on memory usage and ram in Task manager?

Thanks in advance....
