Type "Resource" into the Star menu's instant search box, and in the results, click "Resource Monitor". Click the "Memory" tab in the window that opens and let us know the amounts of RAM being given to each of the colored divisions (Hardware Reserved, In Use, Modified, etc.).

Windows 7 Starter Edition only uses up to 2GB of RAM:

which seems a bit mean of them.
