On the GA-K8VM800M, some bios options are hidden till you hit (either) control-F1 or alt-F1 - fairly annoying behaviour IMHO.

I'm not sure if the one you want is hidden or not.

My Dedicated Video Memory Is 64MB. How to i increase dedicated video memory.I Use gigabyte Motherboard


Hello here is the gigabyte homepage:

http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/support-downloads.aspx

The manual can be found by, selecting the mainboard number.

The video memory can be changed in the bios settings, but can probably only be decreased to a lower setting.

I guess the 64 mb, is the max memory setting.

The solution is to add a better graphic card, on the mainboard for better performance.

A graphic card can be bought in a computer shop, or online.

You just have to know, what socket the mainboard has.

There is 2 different ones: AGP or PCI-E slot

Good luck

It is impossible to increase the performance of a built-in video card except increasing the video RAM. The more RAM you add the less main RAM will be allocated to the main memory. The reason is the video card uses Shared RAM.
To increase the video RAM go into the BIOS setup - video display - memory allocation.
The best way to improve is to install a video card in the AGP expansion slot, you may need to disable the on-board video in the BIOS.

Hi my name is sean and i have this exact board and i have 4 gigs installed ram and the bios is only detecting 3 gigs. I dont have a memory remapping featuer in the bios but the board does support 4 gigs...


Have a look at the BIOS settings, the built-in video card may be grabbing 1Gb for video RAM. The video card uses shared RAM (part of the main RAM module/s). You can change the video RAM allocation in the BIOS.

Video memory sharing from ram


You can check your Bios settings to determine if sharing more memory is possible. You may wish to upgrade to more memory if you plan on sharing more with your GPU.

Dear Sir/Madam, i am using ASUS F-80Q laptop and the graphics is GMA x4500hd Gfx, it only shared 256mb memory, but i have seen about 1gb memory can this chip share (in fujitsu laptop)... there is no...


A BIOS firmware upgrade may allow the video RAM to be increased from 256Mb of RAM. Check the motherboard manufacturer's WEB site to see if this is possible.

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.
