First My System Info.

Bottom 2x USB 2.0 in Front Face Plate/Bezel Connected to Mobo
Currently Running Windows 7 x64 Ultimate

Ok Now Comes The Fun Part :)

So the problem that I am having is this. In the BIOS I can either set my Graphics Card to Auto-128Mb-256Mb-or-512MB Now that is fine by me However Said HyperMemory is more than enough to meat my modest needs, and when I go into Windows, Windows see's that hey you have 256Mb or 512MB etc,.. However that is not enough for Windows NOPE damn Microsoft have to force the Issue making it so that Windows then STEALS Another 1.9Gb of my RAM for Shared Video Memory. .....Deep Breath...... What I want to know is this Since windows sees the HyperMemory as Dedicated Video RAM is there Some way that I can FORCE Windows to Not be allowed to Steal even more RAM for Shared Memory I would like to have my system set up so that the Only Video Memory will be the HyperMemory that I have told the BIOS to Allocate to my Video Card. And Is what I want to do even remotely possible????

Any Help In This Matter Will Be Greatly Appreciated :) Thank You In Advance!!

So many people reading this post yet not one of you guys has any information on this issue? I find it hard to believe that not one single person who has read this post so far knows anything about this..... I guess I will wait a while longer but if the numbers of readers keeps climbing and still no one has any advice on this subject than I guess I will be forced to find a different site in order to get help.

I greatly appreciate your help in this matter after reading that article I have learned a whole lot about windows memory allocation regarding video cards. That was exactly the information I needed. (y) (y)

Thank you for solving my Problem :D
