greetings all,

I have a PC Chips motherboard, (m756mrt), with 750 p111 and 512 mbs of pc133.
the manual says the onboard video can use 64 mbs of ram....I have it set that way in the bios, but it only shows up using 32 mbs, (system and sysoft sandra) any ideas?

thanks much

Make sure that what you set in the BIOS to 64MB is the Onboard Memory size and not the AGP Aperature Size. They are different from each other and exist in almost all motherboards BIOS setups. I would just double check that you are setting the right one.

Thanks, but I just dropped the shared memory to 16mbs and the system checks show 8mbs???????? It shows half of what I enter in the bios.....I'm stumped

Many on-board systems allocate the RAM dynamically ("up to 64 MB").

Its possible that it only hard allocates 1/2 the amount and takes the rest only if and when it needs it.
