    I just added a 128meg chip set to my computer giving me 256meg RAM. When I used to go to My Computer, then system, it would show 128meg ram, system 82% free. Now it shows, 256meg RAM and system approx. 82% free. Shouldn't the free Ram % go up with the addition of the 128meg chip?

    No, the memory that Windows uses for resources is not relevant to the amount of RAM you have in your system.
