    My girlfriends laptop has 192MB of ram with 8MB shared for video ram. Is there a way to increase the amount used for video ram? Maybe in the BIOS?

    thanks

    I believe that in Windows the graphics driver will automatically reallocate more system RAM if it needs it. 8MB is just the minimum that is set aside when the system boots. That's the way the Intel 815 chipset onboard graphics of my ASUS CUSL2 motherboard works.
