Dell Ispriron E1505 has a display message, invalid configuration information Please run setup program but won't go into setup. Machine goes to preparing setup menu and then screen goes grey and machine...

Try removing both memory sticks and then booting up with just one installed. The bios should notice a shift in the amount of memory and prompt you to enter the bios.

Let me know if that works.

ECS A535 Video Memory

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.

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.

How can i reset my pass word

Would need a pass word:

How to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup.
Reasoning: IBM compatible users may need to enter the BIOS or CMOS setup to setup or change how their computer's hardware is currently configured.
Solution: Because of the wide variety of computer manufacturers and BIOS manufacturers over the evolution of computers, there have been numerous different ways to enter the BIOS or CMOS Setup. Below is a listing of the majority of these methods as well as other recommendations for entering the BIOS setup.
Notice: If you are unable to get into the BIOS or CMOS setup because of a password please see document CH000235.
New computers Thankfully, computers that have been manufactured in the last few years will allow you to enter the CMOS by pressing one of the below five keys during the boot.
A user will know when to press this key when they see a message similar to the below example as the computer is booting. Some older computers may also display a flashing block to indicate when to press the F1 or F2 keys.
Press <F2> to enter BIOS setup
Tip: If your computer is a new computer and you are unsure of what key to press when the computer is booting, try pressing and holding any key on the keyboard. This will cause a stuck key error, which may allow you to enter the BIOS setup.
