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

My VGA memory is 3 Gb, I install windows 7. my vga memory detect on my laptop 358 Mb


I would have thought that your total system ram memory is 3Gb...your vga memory of 358Mb is for your video graphics adapter...3Gb of video memory would be very unusual on a laptop...

How to Format A Memory Card Using A Computer


If you are having problems where your camera or other device will not format or recognise your memory card, this is often because the card has become corrupted or the device is an older type and does not recognise the file system of the card.

You should always format your card with your camera or device (not your computer) every time you need to do this. This prevents the possibility of data errors and corruption.

However, if your device is refusing to format or will not recognise the card you can often resolve this by getting your computer to format it for you.

This often helps the camera or device recognise the card and make it functional again. If a format on your PC fails and the card is still not recognised then the card is either faulty or in the case of a camera exceeds your cameras max capability. In this case you will have to use a new card or one with a lower memory capacity.

If you have a card reader on your PC this is the easiest way to access the card with the computer. If not, a multi card reader is a cheap and useful device to have.

Be aware that formatting the card erases all information and or photos stored on it.

To format the card with your PC do the following:

1) Insert the card into the card reader.

2) Go to 'Start' - 'My Computer' and then find the card icon which will show as 'SD Card Drive' or 'Compact Flash Drive' or whatever card type you are using.

3) Right click on the relevant card icon. you will be presented with a list of options. Go down to Format and select this option.Now select a File system type.

PLEASE NOTE: Select FAT32 for 4GB or higher capacities. FAT for 2GB or lower capacities

4) Click start to begin the format process.

5) When the process is complete, take the memory card out and insert it into your device. If the procedure was successful the device should recognise it and it should work.

Note: Old cameras
Many previous old cameras and portable devices do not work if the card is formatted as FAT32 or NTFS file system. One of the following errors may occur if your device does not support FAT32 or NTFS:
- Error message asking to re-format the flash card.
- Error message that the flash card is not formatted.

To resolve the above error, backup your data and reformat your memory card in FAT file system

Graphic card


RAM can be located under the keyboard, or more commonly on the back will be a small panel with a picture of ram on it. The graphics or GPU is soldered on to the motherboard in most laptops and isn't replaceable. You would either need to buy a new motherboard $150-400 in most computers and replace it or buy a new computer.

Well i installed my grapics card.. it was running fine for a few days .. Then i started getting the analog power savings mode over and over.. pls helo


An outdated computer system would malfuntion after installing a new graphic card because is incompartible. As matter of fact, a new graphic card would card picture blank out with older model capacity computers. It is not possible to increase grapics to certain computer systems. Dos operating systems would hardly display any pixles than digits. Check on the computer compartibility operating systems, maximum graphics capacities before introducing the most updated version packs on the retails.

Lenovo 3000 y410 graphic card upgrade?


Lenovo Y410 System RAM can handle up to 2GB of memory. Since the machine has 2 slots for RAM and you already have 1GB preinstalled with the computer all you need to purchase is another stick of 1GB RAM.

There is no chance of upgrading Graphics card since it doesnt have a video card slot and the preinstalled VCARD is onboard.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

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.

My ped drive kingston datatraveller 4gb doesnot work in win98


I think you will find that the card works fine but your computer doesnt recognise the card reader properly. Windows 98 does not properly recognise most usb devices but Windows 98SE does although I am not sure if it will recognise usb2 properly.

A grapics problem


Hi I think I have a solution. If perhaps your graphic card is working now with some games then your graphic card is not the problem. When new games come out they require more FPS (frames per second) in which you need an ungrade card. I suggestion is to buy the PC game first then read the PROCESS requirements and for instance mine says RADEON HD 2400 HD and I need a 4800 to play my new game :( go I am giving up on PC games because of the consistant upgrades Good Luck!

Sd Card reader not recognising SDHC cards


When You Insert your SD card into the internal card reader, then the SD card is not recognised by the system and the SD card drive doesn't show there. The problem can be because of driver issue, system issue and device issue.
To fix the problem you need to go at device manager if there is a yelllow sign in SD card controller, the problem is most probably caused by a driver issue. Then you need to update the driver. You can also download the driver for your card reader.
Also, check if your SD Card is broken. You can also check it into different devices port.
If it is detected then you can backup of your data.

If the problem not resolved by any means and you require you SD Card data then I will suggest you read - https://www.stellarinfo.co.in/services/removable-media-recovery.php
