  1. Hello robertmols67;

    Your Intel GMA 3150 graphics can use up to 384MB of RAM if you're using WinXP or 256MB of RAM if you're using Windows 7. You probably have Win7 Starter?

    You make the change to the amount of VRAM in BIOS.

    Shouldn't it be doing it on it's own as resources are needed?
  3. I'm guessing the OP had already made some changes in BIOS.
    It's usually set to use around 112MB as default from what I read.
  4. so ur advise is use win7 starte or win xp to gain more share to my video as of now i using win 7 professional pls understand my english hope u more advise from u thanks
  5. Reboot your computer; hold down the "DEL" key during the re-boot. This should enter the BIOS of the computer. Once in the BIOS you need to located the setting for video card. Change the setting from the 8Mb you see, I assume during messages shown during a normal boot up sequence, to something like 128Mb. Exit the BIOS being sure to Save Changes.

    No need to change operating systems, Win XP Pro is fine. (it was only mentioned to determine what limits were on size of shared video memory setting)
  6. i do that but i cant change the value of video card only show that 8mb only never be change
  7. exactly the same problem is with me!!!!!!

    i change dthe AGP size to 256 what does that mean ????
