Ok. About 10 months ago, I upgraded ram from 64MB to 320MB. My videocard then was an Intel internal. Well, when I upgraded, my videocard went from a 4MB to a 32MB. I am wandering if their is a way to set how much MB it uses. I am thinking that it takes it from my RAM.

Thanks!

I looked in the settings, and saw nothing that let you do that.

Does anyone else know where I would set this or if you can?

it would be a setting in the bios...check your mobo manual to see what its called and yes, its probably taking it from your ram. to confirm that, type dxdiag on the run line and see how much ram it says you still have available.

It doesn't tell me how much I have available. I will list a few things it shows.

Memory: 318MB of Ram

Page File: 133MB Used, 640MB Available

DirectX 8.1

In Display, it shows Approx. Total Memory at 32.0 MB which was once 4MB. And the DAC type is Internal.
