you need to be careful how you read memory - the programs are designed to use all thats available if you have 64Mb then it will be used.

when theres more memory needed it will start to use the harddrive ans "swap2 info between memory and harddrive - this is where you want to start to minimise this activity by putting in more memory

but it depends on wht you run in the way of applications - you may find the CPU is more limiting

the slots on some reports it will actually say things like
slot0 64mb
slot1 empty

then we know how many pyhsical locations there are on the motherboard and if anything is in

I'm guessing there's a single 64 MB RAM module installed in that motherboard and that 1 MB of it is being used for "on-board' video, which is why it's showing 63 MB.

The only way to find out for sure is to open the case and look.
