How to increase Video-Shared memory

[ Edited ]

Hi. Here's some information about my HP Desktop-pc:

Compaq Evo D310v

D31vm/P2.4/40/k/128c ITL

S/N:  {Removed for privacy}

P/N:  DF447S#ABZ


I've already had a look at all the manuals here, but haven't found anything about that. The default 16mb shared with vga aren't enough to use flash applications in the browser, I need at least 32mb.
Is it possible to increase the size of vga-shared ram?

Re: How to increase Video-Shared memory

Hi Chris,


You have a 2002 model PC that is not spec'd for XP, VISTA or Windows.


If you are trying to use Adobe Flash Player then be sure that your PC meets the minimum requirements for Adobe Flash Player.


You might try booting in the bios and see if you have a setting to change the VGA aperture window size.  I don't know if your bios has that particular setting but you might find another setting to do what you want.  Typically a graphics card will determine the amount of memory to be shared based on the amount is installed in the based.


You might also try the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller then download install the updated Adobe Flash Player.
