Hi.

You'll have to provide a bit more info so we can try to understand what's going on.
You should paste the output of cat /proc/meminfo, free and dmesg.

Check the memory settings in your kernel config.

Moved from Kernel & Hardware to Duplicate Threads.

See Linux Memory Management or 'Why is there no free RAM?', section 2.
