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.

Hi sir i have asus p5 nmx having nvidia geforce 7050/nforce610i integrated graphic .it shows 390 mb total graphic memory in win 7with 1 gb ram .where it shows 780 mb useable ram .here i have chosen 256 mb...


512 for 2gb and 780for 4gb

in intergrated gpu,s the memory is borrowed from the main system memory however the actual intergrated gpu has some of its own memory,but this is normally only small such as 64mb or 128mb however it can borrow memory from the main system memory,something thats known as s.m.a(shared memory architecture)
there are also some dedicated graphic cards that borrow memory from the main system memory,these are known as "turbocache" with nvidia based cards and "hypermemory" with ati radeon based cards,however these cards are very rarely used now as they were not that efficent and in windows vista they score very low performance baseline scores

Windows 7 detects my video card which is xfx geforce 8400 se having a 512mb but only detects as 256mb video card?


When you turn on your pc press F10/F2 (depends upon the motherboard manufacaturer) to go to system setup, function will be according to the motherborad, check for an option named APG/APG Memory/Video Memory. and replace its value using up n down keys or page up/page down or +/- keys. and choose 512 value and maximum value is 256 or less than 256, your motherboard does not support the video memory more than it is selected.

Graphics card


Hi Harikris, no you can not install just any graphics card. You're Intel D845GLLY board uses an onboard graphics card. (It's an AGP graphics card).
If it's you're intention to install a new graphics card you must use a PCI graphics card. (Understand that the AGP onboard graphics is faster than a PCI graphics card). However, the PCI cards do use their own memory. (Which fee’s you're system memory to run windows.
The Intel D845GLLY has 4 PCI (White) slots, onboard. You can add a video card into the system. You're onboard video card does use you're system memory to function. If you're PC has 512MB of system memory & you're video card is set to use 128MB of memory. Than you're system is left to run with 128MB. One would think you're system is running a little slow.
The Intel D845GLLY motherboard can use up to 256MB of system memory. You can set the amount of system memory in the bios as shown on page 49, table 18. In you're manual. If you do not have you're manual you can download it from here: http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/cs-008853.htm
May I suggest you increase you're system memory to 1GB. Than increase you're graphics memory to 256MB. You're system will run faster & so will you're graphics card. These older Intel motherboards require memory current for you're board. Click this link: http://www.memory-up.com/Memory/IntelD12696.html
If you still feel that you want to use the slower PCI graphics card you can choose from any listed on this link: http://www.newegg.com/product/ProductList.aspx?N=2000380048+1069609642&Submit=ENE&SubCategory=48&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleAdwords&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleAdwords-_-NA-_-NA-_-NA
You will also need to change a setting in you're bios to boot to the PCI card instead of the AGP onboard card. Page 49.

Good Luck!

Hi sunee, when a motherboard has an integrated graphics card it's something you can not see. (Integrated mean part of the board). The Intel you have has an 865GV chipset (No card slot). You'll need to enter your bios & find your graphics card. The bad part of a integrated video card is it shares your main system memory to function. So if you set the memory usage to say 128MB & your PC has a total of 512MB your video card takes 128MB leaving your system to run 384Mb.
This link is drivers for your 865GV chipset Intel board.
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/filter_results.aspx?strTypes=all&ProductID=1049&OSFullName=Windows*+XP+Professional&lang=eng&strOSs=44&submit=Go%21
This link shows your board & its specifications.
http://www.firingsquad.com/hw/4096/FIC_P4M-865GV/

You can add a PCI video card to free system memory.
I suggest you check your manual. You are looking to see if your bios will allow you to use a PCI video card.
