Where shared memory is present, the BIOS is used to change the memory size. On your machine you have a Mobility Radeon display card which has 128Mb of memory but the capacity to share a further 384Mb of system memory.

Most applications that show the memory, however, will only show 128Mb of memory since that's what the dedicated memory is. Although you can share more memory with it, it only has 128Mb of dedicated memory all to itself.

F2 when you turn the power on enters the BIOS and allows you to configure things such as video memory. There is strangely no data on it whatsoever in the Acer User Manual for this machine; "hypermemory" doesn't appear once in the entire document, so I'm not able to offer you any more direct support than to suggest looking in the BIOS.

IBM T23 wont turn on after adding new RAM


Hi - according to memory suppliers your T23 has the following memory capacity / requirements:

  • IBM ThinkPad T23 maximum RAM capacity: 1GB
  • Your IBM has Two (2) memory slots or sockets
  • Module upgrade PIN count is: 144-PIN
  • The memory speed is: SDRAM 133MHz, PC133
  • The laptop DIMM type for the ThinkPad T23 is: SODIMM, SO-DIMM, Small Outline DIMM
  • Non ECC

If you are meeting these requirements, you may have a defective module.

Also, according to Lenovo's page on the machine:

Memory
The system has 128MB or 256MB of memory standard and can be configured for up to 1GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 512MB SDRAM SO DIMMs each can be added in the two available slots for memory expansion. The standard 128MB of memory is expandable up to 640MB and the 256MB of memory is expandable up to 768 MB of addressable memory with 64, 128, 256, or 512MB SO DIMMs without removing the 128MB SO DIMM that is standard in one of the internal slots for memory. For customers that need the maximum 1GB to which memory can be expanded, it is necessary to replace the 128MB or 256MB card with a 512MB card plus add another 512MB card in the extra slot. Only 133MHz DIMM memory can be used in this system. The use of 100MHz DIMM memory is not supported in the T23 systems.

This means yo can trouble shoot the 512MB modules individually by installing one of the original 128MB modules and one of the new 512MB modules (for a total system memory of 640MB). If it does not boot, try again with the other 512MB module. This will help you identify a defective module that may be preventing the machine from booting.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Cannot allocate hypermemory


I've noticed that in the bios you can't increase Dedicated video memory because the max for your laptop is 256 but if you check your overall video memory with the shared memory added on by right clicking on your desktop and clicking screen resolution, go to advanced settings, and it should show your adapter with the amount of total graphics memory, the dedicated video memory (video memory of video card), system memory(Mine is 0), and shared video memory ( Ram being accolated together with the graphics card making more video card memory in all). If you switched to XP however, you will probably have less video card memory. Everything should be fine if your on your laptop's default operating system (Mine is windows 7 home premium).

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.

I have a acer aspire 5100. I'm running vista sp1 ultimate 64x I have 4 gb of ram I'm having a very difficult time trying to plat Knights of the Old Republic (a game from 2000) I have a ati radeon xpress...


This model comes in 2 different flavors and I am unsure which one you have but here's the skinny on it:
Option 1:
ATI Radeon® Xpress 1100 chipset with integrated 3D
graphics, up to 256 MB of shared system memory

Option 2:
• ATI Mobility™ Radeon® X1300/X1600 with up to 512MB of
HyperMemory™ (64MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM;
up to 448MB of shared system memory), supporting

Regardless of which one you have, you should be able to set the shared memory in the BIOS, or you can use the Acer ePerformance Management software either installed on your machine already, or which can easily be downloaded from their website at this link:

Ram Upgrade Problem


There is nothing wrong and your install is OK.
The laptop has used some of the RAM as video RAM for the video card that is part of the motherboard.
You should have noticed that with a single 512Mb RAM you would not have the full 512Mb RAM available to you, the video has grabbed 128Mb of RAM.

VIDEO CARDS IN LAPTOPS


Hi there,

I believe your laptop is Aspire 5100.
You CAN'T upgrade your video card, because the video card is on motherboard. it's a chipset.
For custom graphic card, it's too much, you can't just replace it,
you have to have some tools to solder the chipset (you can't solder it by hand) on your motherboard. and if your solder is bad, your laptop won't work properly.

If you want to play game, you should buy desktop, in this you can upgrade your video card (many options).
