Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook
I need to improve video memory for playing some games ( a flight simulator ) and I'm not finding the way to do it. Is it possible? Thanks for help.
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.

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
