You only have 128MB of video memory which is just enough to run the Xserver at not-so-high resolution, the desktop and maybe a browser. So in your case this is normal, the vmem will always be full.
74°C is not so great at idle, maybe some dust in the cooling system.

Dear generix,

Well noted and thanks a lot for your advise for memory.
I will try to clean up my cooling system. And let’s see the temp is down or not.
