I suspect that your systems have on board (built into the motherboard AGP graphics.

The BIOS is set to allocate 16MB of your system memory to the graphics system.

If you need more memory for applications, you need to trade memory between the graphics and the system.

In the BIOS settings, there should be a setting for how much memory is allocated to the graphics. I would not set this below 8MB.

If you need more memory, I would either add memory to the system, or install a seperate graphics card, and disable the on-board graphics.
