194MB + 62MB = 256MB.

What you are seeing in the RAM reading, is what is left after the on-board video has taken its share.

Usually on-board video can take UP TO a certain amount (but it has to leave enough for the OS). The upper limit could be anything up to 128MB but that wouldn't leave enough for the Windows system. Also while you are reading the RAM within Windows, the system is not actually DOING any graphically intense work, so chances are the video has only stolen 62MB (as opposed to 64MB).
