Re: how to know if my video memory is shared?
Hi, Yes the Video memory is shared and its taking 64MB from your 512MB of system memory, if you want better graphics then it would be a good idea to upgrade the system memory to 1 or 2 GB so the system performance isn't effected.

The portion of the ram you don't see is being allocated to the video card. That is typical in computers to share the ram between regular use and the video card itself. 64 is being shared. Sometimes in the bios you can change the shared about but sometimes you cant.
I've noticed that in the bios you can't increase Dedicated video memory because the max for your laptop is 256 but if you check your overall video memory with the shared memory added on by right clicking on your desktop and clicking screen resolution, go to advanced settings, and it should show your adapter with the amount of total graphics memory, the dedicated video memory (video memory of video card), system memory(Mine is 0), and shared video memory ( Ram being accolated together with the graphics card making more video card memory in all). If you switched to XP however, you will probably have less video card memory. Everything should be fine if your on your laptop's default operating system (Mine is windows 7 home premium).

Hi dwman113, Yes your Mach Speed MB will support 2x1 GB, Dual Channel Mode DDR2-800MHz, PC6400 memory modules. (Manual states the memory dimms should be paired). Also known as matched memory. Max Shared Video Memory is 256MB, refers only to the integrated built in video card. Click this link to help you understand what CL stands for; http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/26/3 Small example. CL3 runs faster than CL5. You can run any PCI-Express 16x graphics card & it can be rev 2.0. Graphics cards are backwards compatible which means it will also run at v1.0. You should not buy a SLI card because you only have 1 PCI-E x16 slot. To run SLI, (Hooking up 2 PCI-E x16 cards together viva a small SLI connector) your motherboard would need two PCI-E x16 slots & the board must support SLI mode & your's does not. Here is the main web site link for your Mach Speed MSA2-6100V MB. http://www.machspeed.com/specs/viper/MSA2-6100V.html If you have any more issues or questions just post it & we'll go from there.
You better try to increase the virtual memory of your system as seems you would nt be able to increase the pre allocated video memory to your video device.
The virtual thing you can do by going to the my computer's properties and then in advanced tab you find performance options .Here you can tweak your virtual memory accg to your systtem memory
