You need to go into the BIOS setttings when the computer boot up, usually by hitting DEL or F2(watch the screen for prompt to "enter setup").
Once you are in the BIOS,navigate to the "Advanced" settings. You should see an entry there for the video memory. Use the arrow keys to highlight it and press Enter. Now you will have a choice of how much shared memory to use. Select 64mb. Then hit Enter.
Use ESC to exit the BIOS settings and make sure you "exit saving changes"
You should now find the video card is using the full 64mb.

My Dedicated Video Memory Is 64MB. How to i increase dedicated video memory.I Use gigabyte Motherboard


Hello here is the gigabyte homepage:

http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/support-downloads.aspx

The manual can be found by, selecting the mainboard number.

The video memory can be changed in the bios settings, but can probably only be decreased to a lower setting.

I guess the 64 mb, is the max memory setting.

The solution is to add a better graphic card, on the mainboard for better performance.

A graphic card can be bought in a computer shop, or online.

You just have to know, what socket the mainboard has.

There is 2 different ones: AGP or PCI-E slot

Good luck

My system has a ddr 256 MB but it shows 192 mb only. what is the reason and solution plz


Hi,

Your graphics card is sharing your system memory.

This means that you physically have 256 MB of Ram in you laptop, but the operating system can only use 192 MB of Ram because 64MB of Ram is dedicated to your on-board graphics.

Hope this answers your question!
Please remember to let me know if this information was useful!

Kind Regards

I have a Dell OptiPlex 160L System computer and need to upgrade my graphics card from 64MB total memory to at least 512MB, but prefer 1G plus to handle graphic and fashion design software including digital...


Since you can't upgrade memory on a video card especially if its built on to the motherboard your best bet is to purchase a new PCI video with the proper amount of memory you need and install into your dell PC. you may have to go into the BIOS and disable the on board video card and tell the system to use the new one. Just make sure the new card you purchase has drivers for whatever operating system you are running.

Sd card not recognizable


I read the following spec for your camera: Recording Media Internal Flash Memory 64MB Video/Image
SD/SDHC Up To 32GB Video/Image
So, I think that an 8 GB SD card should work.

Try another capacity and brand to make it work.

Intel MHD 4500 Dedicated memory


For your first question...dedicated memory is only the memory that is always going to be used as part of running your video card. Unless your computer is pushed to its limits RAM wise, you should be fine. So with your first chipset 64mb of ram will always be used to run your video card. the 797mb is shared meaning it will fluctuate depending on your video cards needs. For your seconds question, no your really cannot. Unless you want to risk completely screwing up for computer by modifying your bios. You really do not need more dedicated memory unless you are having preformance problems, then i would recommend a whole new laptop. The 64mb vs 128mb dedicated memory in bios could be an error or your video card might actually have 128mb dedicated memory. Anyway if you ahve anymore questions fel free to contact me. Best of luck

I need new grapics card for my imedia 1401


That card will not work.

http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?i=spec_columbia5p&psn=040135020335

That is your computer spec link. The motherboard and other parts are older and do not support that PCIe x16 card. Only PCI graphics cards will work in your PC.

No graphics card will make this PC a gaming beast but you can certainly upgrade by purchasing a PCI graphics card such as these listed here:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048%201069609642&bop=And&Order=PRICE

You can sort by price, or # of reviews and see which ones people the most. Generall a higher # of reviews and good reviews means it performs better than other similar priced products.

A cheap solution would be the 1st one listed by price:
