If you are using a laptop the video card probably uses what is called shared memory for the Graphics Processor. Which means it pulls RAM from the system and uses for processing graphics. Typically the computer controls how much RAM to dedicate to the Graphics Processor. More RAM is always good. I would check in my BIOS. Sometimes they put RAM allotment for the GPU there. If they advertised that you can get a total of 762MB out of your GPU then it wouldn't surprise me. Just remember the more you dedicate to your GPU the less you have for your system.

SOURCE: video card....

Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.

  • Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
  • Maximum Graphics Memory: 1341 MB
    The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
From the DirectX report you can see, it currently uses 27 MB only.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.

Hi It would with better if you will use joystick controller to enjoy playing GTA , Its just like your playing game console by using joystick controller. You check the price of joystick controller for your computer online or nearest computer center

-The specification of your computer meets the system requirements and I believe that your not going to have any problem installing GTA also playing GTA.
Minimum System Requirements:

800 MHz Intel Pentium III or 800 MHz AMD Athlon or 1.2GHz Intel Celeron or 1.2 GHz AMD Duron processor
128 MB of RAM
8 speed CD / DVD drive
915 MB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
32 MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce" or better)
Sound Card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers Keyboard & Mouse


Recommended System Requirements

Intel Pentium IV or AMD Athlon XP processor 256(+) MB of RAM
16 speed CD / DVD drive
1.55 GB of free hard disk space
(+ 635 MB if video card does NOT support DirectX Texture Compression)
64(+) MB video card with DirectX 9.0 compatible drivers ("GeForce 3" / "Radeon 8500" or better with DirectX Texture Compression support)

I have purchased a asus p5g41c-mlx motherboard on jauary 2011 .but after 2 month its grahpics not work properly ,it is flickering ,i have using window xp. i have uninstal the grahpics and reinstal it but...


Hello there,
Here is *********** boards VGA details.
Integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics Maximum shared memory of 1GB
Supports RGB with max. resolution 2048 x 1536 (@75Hz)
Supports Microsoft® DirectX® 10
Here are the system requirements of the games you are currently playing with problem.
NFS Most Wanted- It should run with no problems just avoid high detail settings.
Minimum: 32MB or more, ATI 7500 or greater; ATI Radeon Xpress 200; NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/GTS or greater Recomended: NVidia 5900 or ATi 9800 with 256mb of video memory
Prince of Persia Two Thrones
Minimum: 64MB Recomended: better than recommended in NFS Most Wanted
COD Black Ops
Minimum: Shader 3.0, 256MB GeForce 8600GT/ ATI X1950 Pro or better. Recommended Nvidia: GT 240 or higher Recommends Ati: HD 4670 512MB or higher Minimum Memory: 2GB
Some games have hardware validation test if your unit fails to the requirements you cannot install the game. try to download this BurnIn. Select the 32bit Standard edition. install the utility and stress your x4500 graphics. Sir you did not post your Processor and Memory. The x4500 graphics will use 128MB of your ram, If you are using 1GB or 1024MB - 128MB = 896MB. 2GB or 2048MB - 128MB = 1920MB. For Memory system requirements your system failed and the main problem is your video card.
Hopefully this helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

How can i play GTA vice city without a graphic card or even when the video memory is low


You simply cant. If your graphics card isn't up to par to play vice city its probably very old or nonexistant. Only thing you can do is upgrade your video card (to play vice city the cost would be very inespensive). The requirements for a graphics card in order to play just this game shouldnt have to be any larger than 256 mb. If you have anymore questions you can just shoot me a message. Sean

I have instal gta game which is not running and giving error of video memory


You must meet the minimum requirements for the GTA game, the ability to play GTA IV on your laptop without upgrading the parts are very slim. Also GTA doesn't support your video card, you have the ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 Hyper memory graphics set, you need the X1900 or an equivalent to it.

It will run but if you want smooth full graphics you will need to get a better video card. of course 4 gigs of ram is better then 2 but if you are running 32 bit windows then you are stuck with a max of 3 gigs of ram.

Help with graphics


you can't do because those games require builtin directx 9, pixel shader v 3.0 and other stuff

The Mobile Intel® 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset family is compatible with versions of Microsoft* DirectX* up to 9.0. Support for previous versions of DirectX (8.x, 7.x, 6.x and 5.x) is also available.

In conclusion, if you want to play those games you must buy a better videocard

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.
