ECS A535 Video Memory

Hello! I own an ECS A535 laptop with 32 MB of video memory. I read somewhere that if you enter the BIOS you can change the memory size to
64 MB but I can't figure out how to enter the BIOS. Please help. Thanks!

    Thanks, but my problem was getting into the BIOS in the first place. When the laptop firsts starts up, I tried pushing F2 like you normally would to enter the BIOS, but that didn't do anything. The user's manual didn't say anything about how to get in and it doesn't even have an 800 number or a website.

The a535 BIOS does allow you to configure the amount of RAM assigned to video. I forget if 64 MB is an option (I seem to remember 8,16, and 32). This will effect the available/reported system RAM. FYI if you are looking to boost video performance, don't bother this will be negligible at best, and may cost you performance as you will lose system memory. These were nice little laptops, but video is decidedly a week point. If you can't get into the BIOS normally, try holding down a key while booting. You will probably get a keyboard error reported and have the option to enter setup from the error message.

You can only change the amount of video memory if your model has a videocard memory that can be dynamically changed. You're correct that it can be done, but only on specific models of notebooks. :) If you're not able to find it on the BIOS then your model might not be one of them.

To increase the memory of the graphics card.


Hello. When you turn your computer on there should be an option to enter the BIOS/setup(eg.:Press F1 for BIOS). From this menu there should be an option to change the shared/video memory. Make sure you press F10 after you change the shared memory size to save the changes. There is no download to give you more memory as it is a physical component rather than software. Also you could purchase an add-on video card. I believe the add-on cards are approaching 4GB of onboard memory. Hope this helps you :)

EVGA e-GeForce 7200GS-Disable motherboard Video


The answer is yes. You need to change the on-board video (Known as PCI), & set it to AGP page 36 in you're manual. This setting will be under Integrated Peripherals.
You will also gain back system memory that the on-board video was taking from you're main system memory for it to work.
At start up of the PC press the delete key every two seconds to enter the bios menu. Go to the Advanced menu & find Integrated Peripherals. There is not a disable (per-say), all you do is set it to AGP. That's it.

Enjoy!
Mike

Can I increase Maximum Memory for 1800T?


No, The reason why your computer says it has lower memory is because either

A- your bios can only recognize up to 320mb. --possible fix via upgrading/flashing your bios --check manufacturer's website.
B- your on board video card shares memory with the system.
