Re: increase shared graphics memory

Its that a on board video card? you cannot tweak the graphics apparature. try to go on the RUN menu and type dxdiag and see what the approximate capacity of your videocard when it booted to your OS.

Your AGP aperture size is 64 MB but your "Onboard VGA Share Memory" may be set only to the maximum available setting in your BIOS. (You may already be at maximum)

1. Highlight "Onboard VGA Share" press <Enter>
2. Change value with [+] or [-]
3. F10 Save and Exit

My PC have no external AGP card. The motherboard is of Gigabyte company.The motherboard BIOS model version is 'Intel I945 BIOS for 945GM-S2 FA AWARD BIOS'. The motherboard can shear only 8MB in graphics...

it can only be done in the bios settings.
but you cannot get 128 mb. normally the onboard sharing will be set a max to only 8,or 16 or 32. maximum. only reputed graphic card company like nVidia or ATI radeon will give the adjustment of sharing memory of onboard vga to that level.
this can also be done only in the bios settings only.
normally under the display tab. or advanced tab in the bios settings.

Graphic Problem

This might be an issue with not having full rights within the BIOS, you could try to enter the BIOS and press F8 this sometimes reveals 'hidden' features.

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

Yes this has its own memory for the graphics. your 1gb of ram is something different. the 64mb is going to support the operating system

Can I install Windows XP SP2 to this motherboard?

yes, much faster, the minimum amount of memory XP needs to run fairly smoothly is 512MB of memory, especially if you have onboard (shared) graphics as this will be taken from your initial memory as well. So to sum up if you have 128MB ram in at the moment and your graphics memory just to run a normal application will use a minimum of 8MB, take this away from 128Mb = 120MB, if you run a dvd film or a game upto 64MB will be used leaving 64MB for the system, not to mention the memory programmes take to start up quiker the next time you use the programme.

ASUS P5VD2-MX SE video memory sharing

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.

Shareing virtul memory

there should be no virtual memory limitation on a motherboard. That limit is a windows only setting that is controlled through the control panel and limited physically by the hard drive. Perhaps you mean to say video memory? ...or conventional memory?...or which other?
