Hello, Windows 7 shows unreal size of dedicated video memory for my nVidia GeForce 9500GT 1024MB it shows only 512MB of dedicated video memory Help me pleas windows 7 pro sp1 total available graphics...


This problem occurs because Windows Vista uses an incorrect rounding algorithm to calculate video memory size.
Microsoft stated this problem online and fixed it in the hotfix 935791. If you use windows update and update to the most recent patches, you will be fine.

Hi sir i have asus p5 nmx having nvidia geforce 7050/nforce610i integrated graphic .it shows 390 mb total graphic memory in win 7with 1 gb ram .where it shows 780 mb useable ram .here i have chosen 256 mb...


512 for 2gb and 780for 4gb

in intergrated gpu,s the memory is borrowed from the main system memory however the actual intergrated gpu has some of its own memory,but this is normally only small such as 64mb or 128mb however it can borrow memory from the main system memory,something thats known as s.m.a(shared memory architecture)
there are also some dedicated graphic cards that borrow memory from the main system memory,these are known as "turbocache" with nvidia based cards and "hypermemory" with ati radeon based cards,however these cards are very rarely used now as they were not that efficent and in windows vista they score very low performance baseline scores

Sir how much graphic memory can spport my p5nmx-mx mthr board with 3gb ram inbuilt graghic memory means how much graphic memory it will show when i will use 3 gb memory {available graphic memory}


the max you will see if you are running vista is 1244. shared memory is calculated as followed.
(total memory-512)/2= dedicated shared video memory. (3000mb-512=2488/2=1244mb dedicated shared memory.

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Hello i want to know what the difference between an integrated video card and a dedicated video card, which has more capacity and what is best for play the latest games


Integrated generally means it is part of the motherboard and not a removable card. Integrated can also mean a card that does multiple tasks like Graphics & Modem & Printer. Dedicated would indicate a removable card that does only graphics and not other tasks. A dedicated graphics card would almost always work better. They have more capacity and work faster.

You can add a graphics card to pretty much any newer computer fairly easily now days. Check your computer manual to be sure what type of video card you will be able to use.

Recommended minimum hardware requirements for Windows Vista loadTOCNode(2, 'summary'); The following list describes the recommended minimum hardware requirements for basic functionality of the different editions of Windows Vista. Actual hardware requirements will vary, depending on system configuration and on the programs and the features that you install. If you install Windows Vista over a network, additional hard disk space may be required. Windows Vista Home Basic
  • 800-megahertz (MHz) 32-bit (x86) processor or 800-MHz 64-bit (x64) processor
  • 512 megabytes (MB) of system memory
    Note On system configurations that use system memory as graphics memory, at least 448 MB of system memory must be available to the operating system after some memory is allocated for graphics.
  • DirectX 9-class graphics card
  • 32 MB of graphics memory
  • 20-gigabyte (GB) hard disk that has 15 GB of free hard disk space
  • Internal or external DVD drive
  • Internet access capability

    • Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware
    • 32 bits per pixel
  • 128 MB of graphics memory (minimum)
  • 40-GB hard disk that has 15 GB of free hard disk space (the 15GB of free space provides room for temporary file storage during the install or upgrade.)

My graphics card


this is probably shared graphics which uses your system memory to run the graphics.

358MB is an unusual amount of graphic memory, but remember this will be the total system memory, and 150MB of it would be dedicated to graphics when needed, the rest is needed to run the notebook applications

Video memory


Where shared memory is present, the BIOS is used to change the memory size. On your machine you have a Mobility Radeon display card which has 128Mb of memory but the capacity to share a further 384Mb of system memory.

Most applications that show the memory, however, will only show 128Mb of memory since that's what the dedicated memory is. Although you can share more memory with it, it only has 128Mb of dedicated memory all to itself.

F2 when you turn the power on enters the BIOS and allows you to configure things such as video memory. There is strangely no data on it whatsoever in the Acer User Manual for this machine; "hypermemory" doesn't appear once in the entire document, so I'm not able to offer you any more direct support than to suggest looking in the BIOS.

Did you try installing and updating the driver of the graphics card dedicated to the operating system "VISTA" ? Sometimes there is some difference between vista's driver and XP's driver.
