Hi there,

My machine's chipset is Intel 945 GM mobile express with 2 gigs of ram @667MHZ.

128 MB of the physical ram is dedicated to video memeory.

How can I double the amount dedicated to video?

Hoping to hear from you,

Regards,

Hi and in some cases the bios will allow you to adjust the amount of shared memory for the graphics. There is some case where the bios is fixed to the amount of memory shared compared to the installed memory. I would start with the bios section :)

Hi and yes it should be able. I have seen some issues with the intel graphics on Intrepid 8.10 but I have not used it yet.
