Converting physical Ram into Video Ram


Hello Techyman,

If it possible to convert Physician RAM on your PC into video RAM then it is probably done through the BIOS settings of your computer.

To access the BIOS you will need to do that during the boot time of the computer, and then you will check for a setting that refers to the video memory or the shared memory. You will need to alter that setting.

In the event that there is no such setting in the BIOS then it is possible that your video card has been made to work with the built in dedicated graphics memory, and for that matter it will not be able to share the system memory on your computer.

Once you are in the BIOS, and alternative will be to do the following:

  • You will need to go to the BIOS menu which is called VGA Share Memory Size and then use the arrow keys on your keyboard, and then press on the “Enter” key.

  • After that you will choose the memory size you wish to allocate e.g. 256MB, for your on-board video card, and then you will press on “Enter".

  • Next you will press on the “F10” to save the changes “Esc” key to exit the BIOS.

Converting physical Ram into Video Ram


Hello Dear,

Thanks that you have shared your problem with us. Dear it is so simple to increase your Video memory by using physical RAM.

Dear it is called Video Memory Sharing. If you want to increase it does as i direct you. Simply go to your system's bios setup by pressing some special keys. Some computers get into bios setup by pressing F2 key, some provides F10.

These keys are shown on screen when the logo of system appears on very first screen during start. Simply get into bios settings and chose VGA settings and do your desired settings.

I hope it will help you a lot.
