I am experimenting a tremendous "lag" while playing any game (such as Counter Strike 1.6). I've noticed that the performance is not the same because the fps rate has decreased a lot. I thought it was my configuration of the game, but I checked it and it was ok. Then I checked the graphics properties and I saw that there was a change. Instead of showing "256" of available memory, it shows "0". Then I looked in my bios utility to check if the value for the graphics memory had decreased, and so it did. So I tried to change it again but it only let me switch between "1" mb or "8" mb! I don't know what happened but I just cannot increase my graphics memory. This is the information for support:
Computer model: HP Pavilion a6100la
Processor: Intel Pentium D925 at 3.4 Ghz
Ram Memory: 1.015 Mb (it says in windows, which means that the memory for video is 8)
OS: Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bits
Thank you very much, in advance, for all the help you may provide to solve this awful problem!
