First, verify your card actually had 64MB RAM before. Did you perform a
BIOS flash or "upgrade"? Is there graphics corruption/artifacting in
games? Have you experienced lockups related to your card? If so it
could mean you either nixed your card with a bad flash or it has gone
bad. Possibly a trace connecting a 2 sided PCB burnt out (killing 1/2
the RAM).

thats the size of the memory on the card, if you believed that you purchased
a 64mb card you never, you purchased a 32mb card

i am assuming you mean the gpu bios comes up saying

nvdidia BIOS
GeForce MC440
32Mb RAM
version 4.2.1658

or something along those lines, if so then try finding a graphics bios
update from nvidia and a graphics drivers update, that might fix it, however
i doubt it, you have a 32mb graphics card not a 64 mb card from the sounds
of it

i dont believe they made a 32meg version of that card. i checked nvidia's
website, and one
isn't listed, only 64 and 128 in that series.

There are 32mb versions of the Geforce4 MX440. I would suggest you get a
copy of sisoft sandra and run it. It will tell you what it sees. I bet
there are other ways of checking the system, but Sandra seems to be
reliable.

The search engine responses for 32mb MX440 returned bad info. Sorry for
the inconvenience. Try SiSoft Sandra.

I could have swarn it was a 64MB card. I flashed the motherboard bois and
now the videocard bios says 32mb. Games run very slow now too.

Thanks for the reply.

I performed a flash on the motherboard bios. Now the card reads 32mb in the
videocard bios on boot. Just weird.

Thanks

How about this, it fits the poor performance, and 32mb situations.

You have an motherboard with built-in graphics. It could be an NForce
motherboard with GeForce graphics in the chipset. There will be an option
within the bios to allocate 32 64 or even 128mb of system ram to the video
system. A mobo flash is likely to reset the video to use a smaller amount of
shared memory (32mb).

If you have a video card installed in a PCI or AGP expansion slot, make sure
that you have plugged your monitor cable into that video port. You could be
using on-board video by mistake, simply by connecting to the wrong video
port.

Did it say 64 MB before you flashed the card?

do you realise this thread is from the year 2004..... either way your video card is stuffed, time to update your computer to something that isn't 10 years old.
