Video shared memory is the amount of memory borrowed by your display adapter from the system. normally it is set to maximum value, and you cannot increase it over this limit. If you check your Pavillion specs you will discover that it has a 64mb video card. You could adjust shared memory amount in bios, but if you try to increase it over 64mb it shouldn't make any difference as your card is a 64mb display adapter. I suggest not to change bios setting, it is useless and can get you in troubles. If we were talking about a desktop, the solution would be changing display adapter. On your laptop only possible solutions are: play with display settings on your flight simulator and try to make it work (with minimum sound and video settings) on a 64mb video card. If this doesn't work you will need to find a different software, or to use the software on a different computer.

cheers

Hi icr
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

Waiting for your appreciation

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

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.



Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

I cannot run MS Flight Simulator on my IBM Thinkpad R40, probably because the video memory is 16MB and the program needs 32MB video ram. Some thinkpads came out with 32mb video ram though, and now I'm...


You should be able to buy buying a Video graphics card for your specific computer. You should always check with your manufacturer to make sure that the part is compatible with the rest of the computer. You may even be able to find the part on the manufacturers website. If you do not know much about computers, especially laptops then you should always have a professional assist you that way you dont cause any other problems.

Hope this helps! FIXYA! Please leave a rating!

Need more video and memory.


Very few laptops allow you to change the video, it is integrated (built in) to the motherboard. All computers also have a maximum limit to the memory capacity based on the number of slots and the type and size of memory modules supported by the CPU.

The Acer Aspire 3624WXCi was a budget system with a Celeron 1.6GHz processor. The Celeron series is just not that good at video tasks, such as your flight simulator demands. The integrated video is an Intel Media Graphics Accelerator 900 with 128MB ram, not bad but not optimum for your applications.

The Acer Aspire 3620 series uses DDR2 memory and has two slots. Each memory slot can hold a maximum of 1GB, so the system is limited to 2GB of ram. If you are at this limit, it is true that you can not add more but must move onwards and upwards to a newer more powerful system.

Problems with installing Pet Vet 2


The minimum requirements for this game requires a separate directx compatabile video card with at least 64MB graphics memory on it. Most laptops have shared video, not a separate card. So that is why this particular game will not work because you are installing it on a laptop without a separate video card. Please take a moment to give this a fixya rating since I answered your correction, even though the answer may not have been the greatest news. Thanks.
