    Hello i have a MB with a Built in Video card the video card is a nVidia 6100

    i noticed that my system is only dedicating 64mb of ram to my video..

    the question is how do i adjust this?

    i have 2gb of ram on my system so i can afford to give more to video i just dont know how

    any ideas?

    Video cards usually have their own, on-board memory and do not share system memory. But some do share system memory and that amount is limited and needs to be set in BIOS.

    And sometimes some system memory is set aside for textures, too. The amount can be set in BIOS setup as the machine boots. It is usually called "Aperture Size".
