    Question change dedicated ram to vidio

    i have a monorail pc with a 366 PII(c) and 96M of ram and my pc says that 8M of the ram is dedicated to vidio. Will increasing that amount give better vidio quality on games like rogue spear? If it will how the heck do i increase the ram to vidio? Any sugestions will very appreciated. And thnx for the help!

    You will need to go into your bios. At boot up you will need to tap a certain key mine is F10. I have a Compaq. On some systems it is the delete key. Just find your key then get back with me. Once you get in to the bios it is pretty easy to figure out. Just dont change something you know nothing about. Atleast that is my rule of thumb for screwing around with stuff. :-)

    You can allocate more ram to video if your bios supports it. Usually there is a limit. Check w/ manufacturer's support site. But if you want more video for gaming or something them go out & get a better graphics card & keep your precious ram for app speed & net speed. Ram is probably the single most important factor related to your computer's speed & performance.

    sounds like onboard video, only suggestion I have is disable the vid and get a new card.

    There is the V3 3000 in PCI format on the market. A very fast card that is relatively cheap. Maybe not a bad option. As far as the BIOS chip, it is specific to your motherboard and cannot be swapped for a different one that will give you more features. BTW, in my experience guys, playing around with AGP aperature size in the BIOS does not make a huge difference. Some cards manufacturers advise users to set it relatively small, so I wouldn't go nuts trying to make it go higher.
