Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook
This is probably due to 'shared memory' that the video adapter uses.
There isn't much you can do about it, although there is an option on some computers and laptops to reduce the video memory that is used.
Please note: changing BIOS settings can give adverse performance effects, only change if you are confident you can go back in again and change the setting back to what it was (make a note of any changes you make, in case you need to reset).
To do this, you will need to get to the BIOS settings by pressing F2 when the computer is first starting up and you can see the DELL logo. Then look for Video settings (unfortunately I don't have an Inspiron to hand to say exactly where it is)... you should be able to change the video memory from 8Mb to 1Mb.
Save the settings, reboot and see if that has made a difference.
Hope that this is of some help.
