thanks in advance
More about :software override bios increase video memory
your definitely not going to find an override of the bios maximum is 32, but if the bios maximum will go any higher - then just increase it to whatever your comfortable with - the other boards bios probably adjusted its self proportionally to the upgraded memory config - this may not be the same for the compaq
what it comes down to is the video adapter and how much shared memory it supports as a maximum
anyway you look at it though if your aim is to increase framerates or play a game on that laptop - it'll be a subpar experience that you wont be able to do much about...
