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

Your best bet is to find a password or (lock) removed version. This website is famous for doing such things. Find a version of the same games which does not have a lock.

I bought a copy of microsoft flight simulator


The product keys is found in the case under the cd on a yellow sticker. If you bought this from a retail store it should contain it, so maybe exchange it for a new one. If not bought in a retail store, and it doesn't have a product key, good luck find one free.

NOTE: sharing product keys is illegal and microsoft can slap you with a hefty fine and possible jail time. I stay legit with microsoft because of this reason.

Intel MHD 4500 Dedicated memory


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

When I bank right or left with joystick the screen Freezes


To check the joystick isn't the problem, go into control panel game controls, then check that the joystick appears and you can move the cross-hair around on screen, most modern joysticks are
auto-calibrating, but you could try running the calibration.

To check the game isn't a problem, unplug the joystick, then use the arrow keys to fly the plane, if it doesn't crash when you bank then it isn't the game.

I assume the game is Combat Flight Simulator 3, as very old games that were written for Windows 95,98,ME series often won't run on Windows NT,2000,XP,Vista as they are completely different versions of Windows. If this is actually Flight Simulator 3, you may need to consider buying a later version of Flight Simulator (FSX is the latest version, but may not run on your laptop).

Other things to try are updating the graphics card driver.

Norton shouldn't need deactivating, although it could cause problems if you're playing online.

Also remember that laptop graphics cards are never as powerful as desktop graphics, and games very rarely specifically support laptop graphics.

Hope this helps.

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.
