The video RAM is built in, and cannot be changed. Upping the system RAM will help improve the video RAM performance quite a bit.

Change os on a think pad r32


Seems you are attempting an upgrade install. Try to do an erase install / Format Install, most probably it will pick up the drivers on its own if not you can search for the drivers on

My ibm thinkpad r32 has 1.2gbs of ram and only 16mb video mem, theres no option in the bios to share ram with video sooo my question is care i share ram memory to video memory at all?


You can not set it to share the memory. Once the video memory is used it will default to try using some of the ram. The 16MB video memory is built into the board on this laptop.

Vga driver for ibm thinkpad R32 is not available


What Operating System are you running? This link( click here) to Lenovo/IBM's suport site does show video drivers available for all OS's, even older ones, but there is a note in the table on that page that says "Windows 98, Me, 2000 - Note: This AGP driver is required in addition to standard video drivers listed below for Windows 98, Me, and 2000."
Make sure you have downloaded and installed both VGA and AGP for your correct OS and see if that helps.

Sorry, But my IBM t42 Thinkpad with no screen has 1 long beep and 2 short beeps. I suppose those beeps mean something is not right.


This IBM beep code means a motherboard or a video fault.
The video chip is part of the motherboard.
There is one thing you can try, the video RAM uses Shared RAM (ie. it uses part of the RAM module), if the RAM is faulty or not seated properly it will produce this error code.
Re-seat the RAM module, and if it still doesn't work then take the RAM to your friendly computer/repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you. If it is faulty, then replace the RAM and with luck the laptop will be operating again.

I cannot run MS Flight Simulator on my IBM Thinkpad R40, probably because the video memory is 16MB and the program needs 32MB video ram. Some thinkpads came out with 32mb video ram though, and now I'm...


You should be able to buy buying a Video graphics card for your specific computer. You should always check with your manufacturer to make sure that the part is compatible with the rest of the computer. You may even be able to find the part on the manufacturers website. If you do not know much about computers, especially laptops then you should always have a professional assist you that way you dont cause any other problems.

Hope this helps! FIXYA! Please leave a rating!

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
