Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

I have intel d865gbf mother board with 256mb RAM.but in computer properties it shows 240mb only ,plz help me to increase it to 256mb.thanks


Answers :

Hi there your system is showing right only. this is because the motherboard has an inbuilt video card which will take some amount of the ram to utilize it as vram or video ram. your motherboard is taking 16mb of video ram.
this is a natural thing. there is no need to worry.
and you can decrease this to 8mb or even 1mb. but is not recommended as the small video size cannot support video playback and also gaming.
this 16 mb of memory is used to display the images to the monitor screen to which you are viewing.

if you want full details.
just do this
go to start -> run -> dxdiag
in that if a checking dialog box appears for whql checking.just press yes.
then go to display tab and see the video sharing memory in approx video memory and also several details will be present there.

hope this helps you.
