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


You need to alter the video memory setting in BIOS. You can get to this by tapping F2 or Del during the boot sequence and then finding the setting within BIOS. Bear in mind that the amount of dedicated memory can only be altered within certain limits. Some motherboards - you don't give a model number - don't support more than 64Mb, others support 1Gb, depending upon board and amount of memory installed

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

It is impossible to increase the performance of a built-in video card except increasing the video RAM. The more RAM you add the less main RAM will be allocated to the main memory. The reason is the video card uses Shared RAM.
To increase the video RAM go into the BIOS setup - video display - memory allocation.
The best way to improve is to install a video card in the AGP expansion slot, you may need to disable the on-board video in the BIOS.

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

While playing game , game is jumpy , to jumpy to even shoot someone , how do I fix this ?


It's hard to answer this without knowing what game you're playing but if I get the information off the net right your computer is incapable of running any of the new games. It's slow, not much ram and poor video capabilities. A lot of the new games require 2 gigs of ram, a 750 meg video card and at least 2.4 megahertz of power to run excellent. What I see of that motherboard you posted under it's only capable of 1.2 megahertz and probably very little ram and an ancient PCI style video card which is about 8 years back in technology.

Cannot set resolution 1640x1050


Hi,
To answer your question in short: If your video card and monitor drivers are installed correctly and you are able to adjust the resolution to 1640x1050 in your settings then your card and monitor are able to handle that resolution.
Remember that at higher resolutions your display card performance might become very slow.]
This is due to your BIOS shared memory being only 64Mb.
To get better performance you will have to upgrade your display card to one with more memory. ie. 256Mb. or more.
Best of luck.

Which one wins??


Hi,
The big differance between the two is the onboard video uses you're system memory to run & you can increase the memory for the card but that will take away system memory. What type of system memory are you using? SDRAM or DDR?
The Radeon 7000 will use its own memory freeing you're system memory. If this is you're only choice I would suggest the Radeon 7000.
I can give you a third choice which blows away both graphics cards (combined).
Here is one. http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3570059&CatId=318
& here.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131081
How about a big list. of 4x cards able to run today's game & directX 10.

The choice is your's.

Good Luck!

Hi sandesh8, did you know you can increase the memory size of the onboard AGP card above the 64MB? Page 26 in you're manual. If you install another AGP card into the opened AGP slot, please go to this site & only use the recomended AGP cards in the Asrock list. Click on this link: http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0&s=478&c=VGA
This is one of very few video cards found on the list with 256MB of video memory.
