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
go into the system BIOS by pressing the DEL or F2 or F10 key and the you will see the BIOS menu, ther you will see intergreated peripherals and there you will see video ram something like that and there it will show you 8Mb change it to 32 or whatever you want press F10 and reboot and your memory is changed.
This is done in the BIOS screen. Upon startup of the computer, press the key or key combination the screen tells you to in order to enter the BIOS. Somwhere in there there will be a selection for video memory that you can change. Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating. :c)
all you have to do is go into the bios, do this by pressing F2 on boot up, when in the bios you need to look for "shared memory" or "graphics memory" once you have chosen the shared memory you want save settings and exit by pressing F10, the pc will restart and the shared memory will be increased
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
The message on the user's manual only indicates the possible maximum memory that can be shared with the video while in your bios you can see the actual shared memory.
I think this could be case to do with the graphics card you are using i.e. is it onboard or an add on. In some cases too the manufactures of the motherboard are not the same manufactures of bios and therefore the manufacturer of the board has given it allowance to share up to 128mb while the bios manufacturer has given it up to 64mb. Remember many of the components on the board may come from different companies.
