Dedicated Graphical Memory & Shared System Memory
Hello,

I have a Asterope RC410 mobo -
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/d...204837&lang=en
I just installed a ATi Radeon HD 2600Pro (512MB, PCI-E), I have onboard VGA
which had 699MB of shared system memory. I have 2GB of RAM installed

When I go to the Display Settings it says that I have 767MB of shared system
memory.

How can I disable memory sharing or how do I reduce the amount of shared
memory? (without removing the drivers for the onboard, as I tried that and
my other hard drive with XP on it and it f***ed XP)

Hi,

Disable it (the VGA) in the system BIOS as long as the card is working.

I don't have that option, the only option I have that is related to this is
to set the primary video adapter (onboard, PCI-
E or PCI), its set to PCI-E but still shares memory.

Re: Dedicated Graphical Memory & Shared System Memory
Either it's there or it's not, depends on the system BIOS.

There may be a motherboard jumper to disable the intergrated video, check
your manual.
