Preferred Solution: GTA 5 Video Memory overboard

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

hello all,

about to buy an xfx 7600GT (AGP) for my computer but wondering if its a good "fit" if you get me.......
my specs are as follows:
AMD Athlon XP (2600+)
2gb ddr ram(PC3200)
lots of hard disk
on-board nvidia geforce4 (64mb)

am i going overboard getting this card? if so what would be better? im looking to use it for games and movies but im just casual about both.
any advice would be great, i need to learn these things!
 

Answer:am i going overboard?

Imo I would not waste that amount of money on that pc I would rather put the money to a better upgraded pc, as I said that's just my opinion
That said if you feel you need and want to upgrade the gpu, than hey go for it.
I give it six months and you will probably want a faster machine

Hi all,
I am wanting to know if i am going over board with my security on my pc.

I am currently running:

ESET - Smart Security 4
PCTools - Threat Fire
StopZilla 5 (recently installed)

I was going to get zone alarm pro, as a firewall, but have decided to wait.

The reason i have chosen these programs is they al specialise in different areas, but i am wanting to know if this is overkill? or if I am lowering my security by having these?
Or if its all ok?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Am i going overboard?

Question: Overboard?

Well its like this... Im new to this whole computer bussines and recently after i ordered some new components for the future pc to be i decided im gonna build it.

I got some help from a friend of mine (lives in another country, so through msn mostly) and i have succesfully connected the mb, power suply, Vcard, Memmory and hd (hopefully).

Now we have aswell put in the processor (amd athlon 64 3200+) and the fan above it. But after i connected all those to the power and mb and then connected it to the power to see if it worked, it didn't turn on. I have put on Thermal paste on my cpu but then discovered the fan had its own square made thermal paste but thinking i didn't put that much i just left what i had put on the cpu (in the middle mostly) and put on the fan. Now when i took off the fan to check that the thermal didn't go overboard ( i was told it is very destructive if it does) i discovered.. sadly that on the fan except for the outprint of the cpu i have on the sides layers of thermal paste. Now my question after all this is... Am i ****ed after 7 secs max of turning it on and having the thermal paste over board or is it still not :hotouch:. Is the cpu done for it?

All your help on how to fix it (if its not ****ed) and just any info would be alot for me.

thanks alot.
 

Answer:Overboard?

Dont worry, you hsve the wires from the power switch to you motherboard on wrong..the cpu is fine im sure...its an amd man.

First off, thank God for you people. Over the past month or so almost all of my debugging info has come from this website...so many thanks.

As a result of the recent W32.Blaster.Worm rash, I became pretty friendly with Windows XP RegEdit (a little too friendly, it seems) and took to deleting keys without first backing up the registry. In a few Symantec Security Response warnings, I noticed that winlogon.exe was often listed as an infected file ([email protected] comes to mind). In a stroke of blinding genius, I searched the registry for winlogon.exe and deleted all references to the file I saw there.

Needless to say, this was a bad move. The only ill effect I've noticed so far from this little mishap is that when I start up Windows XP (as in shut down completely and start up, not restart), it goes no farther than the "Windows is starting up" screen. If I hold down the Shift key during startup, this screen is skipped completely--the "Welcome" screen is displayed for roughly 15 seconds, and then the Administrator account (the only account I use) logs in with no further trouble.

How do I correct the startup screen lock-up? Should I expect any other problems as a result of my "ingenuity?"

If you have two installs...on two distinct partitions...seems to me all that you have to do is use Easy BCD to edit the boot files...and delete the unwanted uninstall...after making sure that the boot files are NOT on the partition you delete.

Although I have Win 7 installed...I don't get into it much and certainly know a lot less about it than I do about XP and how it works.

I suggest that you await some input from more knowledgeable, daily users of Win 7 , there are plenty who visit this forum.

I have the latest Video card and mother board drivers installed and keep getting the blue screen of death on random things mostly DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR EQUAL

First, I did check out the definitions of each and its clear as mud.

I do a lot of multi-tasking, and lots of video screening but absolutely no gaming.

I am looking at minimum triple-core processor PC and I see some have Video Memory at
128MB and some at up to 512MB.

For my purposes is a 512MB really beneficial over a 128MB or really the benefits are for those gamers?

I would think the larger size would help with Video streaming a little but nothing to write home about.

how to share memory with RAM

Answer:i cannot share video memory through ram...no video card.

If it's a laptop, or a PC with an on-board video-adapter, you adjust the amount of RAM assigned to the video-adapter by going into the BIOS Setup > Integrated PeripheralsNote: There is an upper limit to the amount of system RAM you can assign to the video adapter, you cannot go above that. That limit depends on make/model of PC.Also bear in mind that assigning more RAM to video means less RAM is available to Windows & applications, so unless you have plenty of installed RAM you may notice your PC runs more slowly.

I was just wondering, how do I find out how much of my RAM is dedicated to Video Memory? Because I tried playing Never Winter Knights (the new one) and the picture was really messed up, I can attach a snapshot if you like. A 16MB video card is the minimum for NWK, and since the game worked on my computer (and I have onboard video), I thought that my computer met the minimum requirements, but since the display is so messed up, I can't understand what's the problem
 

Answer:How do I find out how much video memory I have (how much RAM is dedicated to Video)?

Access your bios setup page.......it should show how much ram is being pulled for onboard video there.

Answer:What is best "shared memory or built in video memory" for laptop

Not knowing which graphics adapters they are makes it really hard to know which to recommend. A ton of video memory on a very low end card or low end integrated GPU isn't going to help much.

Answer:low video memory

I think that the software is complaining about the amount of memory on the video card, not about the main memory.
Is the machine a laptop or a desktop? What make and model is the computer? What make an model is the video card? What software are you trying to install (company, product name, and version)?
If the computer is a laptop, there is (most likely) no way to change the video card.

Answer:video memory

Simply your graphic card will have more ram to use, can load better textuer or have a little increase in performance. by the way, since your overall ram is shared between system and video, your system (Operating system) will have less ram to use.

Video memory is memory that is built onto your video card and is used to store textures and such. Dedicated cards have their own memory while onboard gfx share system ram.

I thought my computer had 16Mb but when I try and run the program it says it cannot run as there is not 12Mb available video memory. I therefore have two questions - how can I find out how much video memory my computer has? And if it does have more than the 12Mb required, how can I ensure enough is freed-up?
 

Answer:Video Memory

- Look at your computer manal or sticker on the computer with stats.

- Go to MY computer, right click, Properties, Device Manager (tab) and click on DISPLAY ADAPTER. What model& brand is it?

- what kind of computer do you have? Perhaps its the built-in memeory that it is not reading correctly.

Question: video memory

hi guys,              in the bios on my laptop,  where it says video memory, I have three options, 32 mb  64mb  128mb  at the moment it is set at 64mb, what would happen if I set it to 128mb, please explain,                                                                        all the best, bluesfloyd

Answer:video memory

Simply your graphic card will have more ram to use, can load better textuer or have a little increase in performance. by the way, since your overall ram is shared between system and video, your system (Operating system) will have less ram to use.

I Have a Lenovo-G50-45 Model Laptop and I am a gamer. I found out that video memory on laptops can be changed in value and I would love to do this because one of the games I play Is Grand Theft Auto 5, and would really want to play on higher settings. I have an AMD A8 Quad-Core processor with AMD R5 Radeon HD Graphics, with 8GB installed memory (Some of which Isnt useable) and 1GB of Video Momory, which I would like to change to a higher value, If I can. Is this possible for me, and If so, how do I do it?

Answer:G50-45 - Video Memory

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
I'm not an owner of your model, but if there is a setting that allows for the increase of memory allocated to the video it will be in your BIOS Setup.  Page #28 of your model's User Guide will explain to how access the BIOS Setup.  Here is a link to that guide for your reference.....

Hello, I bought this game called FATE. It's an older game so I was sure it would work fine on my PC. I've played other games such as Warcraft III and Legends of Aranna with no problems. I installed Fate but the when I click start before the game screen comes up it says "Not enough video memory, this game will now exit"

How can this be? Other games work fine so why shouldn't this one? I looked around my computer adjusting settings. Nothing is working. I went into BIOS but can't find an area where they would let me change somthing to help this situation. I un installed it and then reinstalled it. It did the same thing, but when I click on to try to launch the game a second that message won't even come up now.

Anybody know what I need to do to play this game? Thanks

Question: Bad video memory

I have an Acer x1700, with 4gb of Ram, 2 hard discs, running Vista Home Premium. It has worked flawlessly for years. Recently it started hanging. No mouse movement or keystrokes had any effect. Had to shutdown by holding power button for 10 seconds. Got more frequent until now it only lasts a few minutes before freezing up. Thought it was a virus or malware, but ran Avast and Superantispyware and Kapersky with no errors (except minor adware). Removed all of that and still no joy.
I ran the Passmark burn-in tests. Everything checked out except it gave continuous 2D graphic errors, and could never access the video memory. I had a GE Force G100 512 mb DDR2 DVI/HDMI board installed. Removed it but got the same errors just using the onboard video.
First question - Does the system use the onboard video memory (which I thought was just a part of the RAM) even when a separate video board is installed?
Even if it does, since the memory proved to be OK, using both Passmark and another RAM tester, is there separate video memory on the Acer motherboard, and is it accessed by both onboard video and graphics card?
Also, can onboard memory be replaced, or is motherboard fried?
Good little computer otherwise, and will upgrade with a total new system, but would like to fix this one up for a grandkid if it can be saved.
All help appreciated.

Question: video memory

hi i've been trying to get my computer to use some of my ram as video memory(shared memory). In the bios i am able to share a max amount of about 8Mbs of ram as video memory, is there anyway i can change it so it will allow me to share more memory?
 

Answer:video memory

i think that may be the max you can set it according to your bios, only so much can be allocated to video vs system memory. afterall, you need enough system mem to run your apps and windows too. sounds like you have an integrated graphics card (bummer). a better option would be to find a pci video card for your system that can be had with more onboard memory instead of trading off for system ram.

Question: video memory

Is 32 mb of video memory lousy for watching online videos, say with windows media player?I've got an XP machine with 512 mb RAM.  Computer Properties indicates that theres 480 mb RAM, dxdiag indicates 32 mb is for video memory...total 512 mb (as indicated in CMOS as well)  No graphics card, just onboard video.  I'm unable to allocate any more video memory in CMOS because it's already at it's max When I watch some videos it looks like it is buffering ok, but the video stops for a split second or so, and it happens like every 10 seconds...very annoyingI've done all the basic stuff, disk clean-up, virus-scans, defrag, registry cleaner..

Answer:video memory

Does this happen with all the videos you have watched? Does it take time for the video to load completely?

I do not know if I posted this one the right thread so if I posted it incorrectly, can the mods please transfer this to the correct one? Thanks!

Here's my question. My girlfriend has a netbook (brand does not matter - only the specs). It has an Atom N455 and 2gb of DDR3 memory. She has always been complaining about the poor or if not non-existent Aero looks of her Starter. She does not want the best Aero graphics of the Ultimate version. Just enough for her netbook not to look like a mass-produced, cheap (which really it is) gadget. She had a chance to have a genuine copy of Home Premium and immediately grabbed it. She had her friend install it for her and after all was said and done, she was still not satisfied because it still looked like a Starter (mainly because her netbook had no onboard graphics).

My question is, is there a way to convert let's say 512mb of those 2gb of RAM into graphics memory? I know it is asking much but she wants atleast a bit of those Aero looks so she can change wallpapers, have her preinstalled games not lag because of some hardware acceleration issues, transparent taskbar (if possible) and most importantly, change her screen resolution?

Thanks!

Yes it does. At least with the make and model we can see whether it is using the graphics integrated into the CPU,

Intel? Atom

or something else. If it is the integrated graphics then was the Intel graphics driver installed for it?

Question: Video memory

Greetings,

Is there an easy way to determine how much video memory I have. ie how good my video card is?
 

Answer:Video memory

The best way is to search for the manufacturer and see the specs of your card. Also running a Diagnostics program can do so (Like Sisoft SANDRA o PCDoctor). Not necessarily the amount of ram that your card has determines if it's better than another, it's a little bit more complicated. Let's see. Today there are two possible technologies for a video card: PCI (likely to be found in Pentium,P-MMX and the first P-II) and AGP (the standard now). So if you have a PCI video card with 8 MB of RAM, and another one but AGP with the same amount of memory, the best between both is the AGP card, as this bus is faster than PCI. Also you have to see what kind of card, i.e. if it's only a video card or a graphic accelerator card (like Voodoo family), Sorry if I screwed you a little, but it's like this. Good luck.

You can't have 0 video memory because your monitor wouldn't work. Do you have onboard video or a video card? Do you know the make and model of your motherboard? If you don't then download and run Belarc Advisor or Everest Home Edition. These programs will give you a report on your system and show how much video memory you have.In your Bios you can set the video aperature but don't do this until you know what your video memory is.

My computer has been freezing up over a period of time. Does this mean that either my memory or video card is going out. If not what is it?
 

Answer:Video or memory or what?

It could be absolutely anything. It could incorrect/corrupt drivers, a virus, adware/spyware, RAM, video, powersupply, motherboard, overheating, etc.

Lets start with the easy stuff. Open up the case and check all the fans, there will be at least two. One on the CPU and one in the back of the powersupply. There may also be one the video and a some case fans. Blow out any dust and make sure all fans are spinning nicely.

Also check for a virus. Go to www.trend.com and do a free online scan. Also download and run SpyBot Search and Destroy to remove any spyware, adware - http://www.safer-networking.org/

Also where does it freeze, how long has it been doing this, what hardware and software do you have running?

Question: video memory

Hi I have a computer with integrated ATI Radeon XPress 200 IGP graphics card. Right now, my computer has 256MB RAM and the video memory is 32MB, so I only really have 224MB RAM. How do I increase my video memory? The video card is supposed to be able to deliver up to 128MB of video RAM. How do I increase my memory from 32MB to 64MB or 128MB?I've looked in the BIOS and it says 32MB, and I could not change it. It didn't have 64mb or 128mb listed for me to change to. Is it because I don't have enough RAM on my computer? (I only have 256MB RAM right now)

Answer:video memory

The amount of system RAM assigned to the onboard video depends on the total amount of system RAM present. If you add more RAM to the machine, you will have more assigned to the video adapter.With only 256 RAM in the machine you wouldn't want more just for the video anyway.If you are hoping for a gaming system, an add-in video card would be a better solution. 512 RAM is really better for an XP system's overall performance as well.So what are you trying to achieve, and what is your computer or motherboard make and model?

There is an option in my bios to change the dedicated video memory of my integrated graphics card.Is there any problem if I increase it?(Currently it is 64 MB, there is maximum 1024 MB available in the option)

Kindly see my specs below.

Answer:Dedicated video memory

As far as I know its shared ram, Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology, utilizes the installed RAM of which you have 8GB. I would suspect 8GB for Win 8 would be a comfortable minimum.
I doubt doing this could damage anything but trying it could show the following possible results;

It Works
It Wont boot
It works but at a degrading cost to your PC performance.

In short there probably isnt any harm in trying. If in the Bios it states that option is available then I would assume that with the right resources it will work.

I am assuming the Bios has set the current amount based on the ram installed on the board. Again, trial and error.

NOTE: Changing settings in a BIOS should be done with precaution. Advance at your own risk.

Hi,
I have 64MB for video memory reported in BIOS but my Adapter shows only 32MB, could someone please tell me it's normal and I am looking at two different things or something isn't right, I have the latest Intel HD4000 drivers installed. Thanks.

Answer:Different values for Video memory

My guess is there is 32 MB dedicated video memory. The 64 MB should indicate the video has borrowed 32 MB from the shared system memory to give a total in use of 64 MB by the video hw. I had an HP machine with only 1 GB ram and a similar setup. I limited the total video ram to 64 MB so that the video would not borrow a bunch of system ram. It would not improve the video performance by much and was better used by the system. 64 MB was just enough so I could drag windows around without jitter and use 32 bit color settings.

Hello all,

I have a Tecra A11-10D and in windows it show's that my graphics card is using 1200MB of RAM as shared video memory. I do not need so much memory for my graphics card, i think 256MB will suffice tacking in account that the onboard card has 64MB of dedicated video memory.

Now on all the computers i know that in bios there is an option to assign RAM to the video card but in the BIOS of my computer I see no such option. I think / hope that an updated bios will give me this option. On the download drivers section I see a new BIOS but I don't want to flash it until i see the BIOS update specifications.

Can any one point me to such a document?

hi,

as I know, the video card will automatically grab hold of its allocated amount of laptop RAM . I doubt you can make adjustments yourself. In Bios of desktop Pc, you can do it as there is an option for video card memory allocation. The bios reflash won't help you.

You may be able to do this in the laptop's BIOS/CMOS setup if the card is intergrated. If the Video card has its own memory then you'll either have to buy more memory for it or buy a new card with more memory. In my case, I can do one of the latter 2.

Hello all! I've seen many tutorials and videos on how to increase video memory to make games run more smoothly but none of them seem to work my BIOS screen doesnt have the increase video memory option so im really stumped on what to do. i play sims 4 and it runs quite fine but i recently purchased cities; skylines and its lagging so much. My computer has 6 GB ram but the video memory is 64. apparently the number it needs to be is 512. How do i increase this? i have windows 10 btw.

It all started about a few months ago. In the middle of playing a game my computer would momentarily freeze then all the textures would be replaced with other textures. For example the ground would be pink. At first this happened sparingly enough for me not to worry too much about it, but over time its gotten worse. Now I can hardly get thirty seconds of game play in before a lock-up and a texture scramble. I can fix the problem by minimizing and remaximizing. It takes a full 10-15 seconds to fully maximize and sometimes it only fixes the problem for 2-3 seconds before it messes up again. Like I mentioned earlier the problem has progressively gotten worse sometimes resulting in a permanent freeze just before a blue screen.

At first I thought the issue might be due to my video card over-heating. Yesterday I opened up my laptop case to clean it out. I removed large chunks of dust from the inside of my video card that might be constricting air flow. But after powering the machine back on the problem immediately persisted. I've reinstalled my drivers multiple times (it's what windows suggested after each blue screen) but to no avail. Yesterday, in a last ditch effort to remedy the problem, I completely reformatted my computer. Even now, with all the drivers reinstalled properly the problem still exists. I feel it's safe at this point to assume the problem is not a software issue.

Any diagnostics I should run or any ideas anyone has are welcomed. At this point I... Read more

Answer:Video card, Memory or something else?

Sounds to me like a hardware issue, but more info is needed..

It's possible that your video card has faulty memory; your video card has known issues with memory and heat issues.

What is the make/model of your laptop?

I am not a huge gamer and I am still learning about my new HP laptop. My last computer died on me of old age and viruses. Through what I thought was sufficent research, I settled on a model that fit my price range ($1200)and needs.After talking with my friend about her recent laptop purchase, I am wondering if I need to upgrade my dedicated video memory. She said that 64mb of dedicated video memory is not enough to play most games. Is this true?

Acer Aspire 5920G
Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 2.2GHz
"Up to 1280MB" NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
4GB RAM
Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 from Windows Vista and have heard it is possible to extend the Graphics card memory (hence the "Up to 1280MB" above, which is shown on the specifications list on the machine).

I am quite new to making performance modifications and I am interested to see if this would make any difference to performance, if it is possible. Does anyone know how I go about doing this, or even better, how to utilize the last 1GB of RAM that is unusable by my operating system?

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

Answer:Extending Video Memory?

Best thing you can do is install the latest driver. Besides overclocking, nothing you do can really enhance its performance. Set it and forget it.

For overclocking, use RivaTuner from Guru3d.com. Read up on it and the precautions if you aren't sure. Don't go too high. Be modest.

That has 1GB memory dedicated for graphics. That's more than enough.

I recently ran a stress test for my computer or a reliability test.

It turns out i only have problems with 2d graphics and i got 90 errors. With 3d graphics i got no errors.

It says Video memory corruption and to be honest I don't know what that means.

Any help guys?

Joe.
