I heard there is a way to reallocate more memory to graphic functions, if you have graphics integrated on the motherboard, does anyone know how?

Thank you.

I think you'd have to buy a motherboard with an Intel 810 (or higher) chipset on-board. They use "DVM Technology" to re-allocate memory usage (per specific application/function) to enhance the overall handling of graphics.

Here's a brief white paper on the technology (it's been around for a while now):

Otherwise, to improve performance you might be able to use some registry tweaks:

Or you could try changing this setting in your system BIOS:

*NOTE* I have not tried any of these tweaks/changes. You could make changes that will have a seriously adverse effect on your system, so if you're using Windows 95, you might want to export any registry keys you end up changing.

Then again, you could always disable your on-board video adapter and pick up a decent AGP card with 128 MB on-board?
