Question about HP e-PC 42 PC Desktop
Sandrew is correct about it being the onboard graphics, and the processing power needed, but I'd like to add more.
*Often the amount of memory addressed to the video is set in BIOS. Go there and set it to the most possible.
*Often these mobos with onboard graphics have NO AGP or PCI-E slot to add a graphics accellerator. Standard PCI cards are not fast enough.
*As a gamer, I must give you the bitter truth. If you are stuck with onboard video, forget any game more demanding than the ones that ship with windows. If you do not have DOUBLE the minimum requirements, it will not run well. It takes a lot of Tabasco to play any of the PC games in the last 5-7 years.
Craigslist is a great place to pick up an older gaming PC for a reasonable cost ($400-1000), and you can keep your PC.

There is no problem, if you have onboard graphics, then they are currently using the minimum 8mb of graphics memory when using normal programmes, when you run a video or a game the pc will increase the amount of graphical memory it needs, reducing it even further, untill you stop using the programme, at which point the system will reclaim the memory. So you are showig the correct amount of memory.
