hey
my problem is that the games in my pc doesnt run properly. even small flash games has a very low frame rate. the display isnt fluid at all.

i own a sony viao with windows vista 64 home premium. here is its display settings

Adaptor = Mobile intel 4 series express chipset family
total graphics memory available = 1759 MB
dedicated video memory = 128 MB
system video memory = 0 MB
shared system memory = 1631 MB

apparently, i cant change the dedicated memory manually from the bios as i used to do in XP. the OS is suppesed to automatically increase video memory as per need. but it doesnt increase enough. i end up with very low picture frame rate even if i have sufficient memory available.

thx u in advance

What games are you trying to play?

"Non-gaming" laptops are not the best for playing graphic intensive games, and I don't think video memory is not neccesarily what is hindering you from playing these games. It could be that your laptop's GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is not powerful enough to play the games that you want to play, at decent frame rates.

well u can call my laptop "non gaoming". its is not optimised for game play. n i noticed the problem while trying to play call of duty 4. but the problem is also there when i use a game "Ninja XP" which is a flash game. its total size is 1.45mb. now i hardly think this is due to a lack of a graphics card. i might have screwed up the settings while installing the OS. i intstalled the vista myself. is that possible??

I can only imagine that some type of read/write error during installation could cause an issue, but I don't know of a way to change the settings during installation that would cause the issues that you are having. I think the problem is just Windows Vista!
