Re: ASUS P5VD2-MX SE video memory sharing
Reset your cmos battery. by removing the battery or by setting jumpers on your motherboard. anyway please use our facilities make your new querry as a new post thanks.
In case ou did not know Onboard Videos now a days uses soe of your systems memory and making them Graphics Memory this technology evolved to what we call Hyper Memory making your settings of 64MB as Max multiplying it b 2. makes it 128MB.
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.

If you watch the memcheck during POST, you will probably see the fuill 2GB (as well as in the BIOS). However, because you have onboard video, the video "card" shares some of the system memory and as such it will not report that shared portion as available to the OS.
You do know you can increase your integrated video's memory in the bios. Up to 1GB. (Yes, I know you currently only have 1GB of system memory) but you can kick it up to 128Mb & Vista should still run. Your 1GB system memory is shared with the on-board video card. I'd like you to clean out the PCI-E slot with some cotton swabs & house hold Alcohol. (do not over soak the swabs). Clean the pny's copper contacts as well. Get a really strong flash light & look into the PCI-E slot & look for dust, dirt & check the copper connectors are not bent or twisted. Re-install the PCI-E card & set the bios back to PCI-E. Try again. Even if the system reverts to weird, install the 8400's software & driver. Re-start the system. See if the system runs normal. Also would not hurt to check for Window's updates. After all that, if system does not function normally I suspect there is something wrong with the 8400 card. Good luck & let me know if this has helped. Have a great day.
