Video RAM..BIOS Setting ?

By cyberghost_1 ·
I have 64Mb RAM with 1Mb shared with on-board video. Where can I find the BIOS settings so that I may change the amount of memory that Video is using? i.e. To add more shared memory.

Difficult to say when you don`t mention the make or model of the PC in question.

I believe that this model uses the "Intel Extreme Graphics" built into the [810] chipset. We've just upgraded a number of them and wondered this ourselves. What we've found is there doesn't appear to be a need for any controls on it. The system APPEARS to allocate the RAM AS NECESSARY. In other words, if you increase the [monitor's] resolution, it appears to add memory as needed. Sorry I am unable to confirm this as I haven't pursued it. It is obvious that the video memory MUST be more than the 1MB that shows up in Diags when we up the resolution so high. The memory MUST be dynamically set, as we can [also] find no way to actually manually set it either in BIOS, or in the driver. Further proof is (as mentioned above) that the resolution DOES increase to a much higher degree without a problem. If the RAM was SET at a mere 1MB, this couldn't be the case.

I believe that I DO have 1 Mb shared memory. All Diags indicate 63 Mb Actual Physical RAM. Assuming the other 1 Mb is being used by the Intel Xtreme Graphics. Using the 810 Chipset.
