Hi there, can someone help me find out how to increase memory to a built in video card to Windows XP Home. I have a toshiba laptop P4 3.0Ghz with 512mb of ram, and the memory assigned to video card is only 32 and I want to increase it. I did this to windows 98, but I cant find it in XP Home. Thanks a lot....

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you are struggling to run an application on the hardware you have re-provisioning system resources will only be a short term fix.

Looking at the spec you put up I would strongly recommend jumping onto the sandy bridge bandwagon. Then you won’t have this issue.

    Look for similar settings in BIOS, Video Configuration -> AGP Aperature Size. Change it from 32 MB to whatever you want. Cheers.

    TO the guy above me..........aperature size is how much physical ram is set aside for video card use, it comes into play after shared video ram. You should look for onboard memory or shared memory size in the bios though.

    Also called "framebuffer size" in some BIOSes

    if you have done it for windows 98 surely you would have a fair idea to do it on WINDOWS XP.. Usually the settings are in the BIOS but if you have configured another way according to your windows 98 experience then let us know how it was done. surely if you have managed to do it in windows 98 then the process may be similar to that of winxp.
