    Nvidia 8400 Mobile and compiz

    My laptop has the Nvidia 8400 Mobile chip, I know it doesn't have that much dedicated memory but I was wondering if anyone else had the same chip and has any lag with compiz?

    I've got 4 gigs, but 32bit systems only supports something like 3.2 gigs I think.

    My processor is C2D T9300.

    How did you install the nvidia drivers? Have you tried to adjust the amount shared with the graphics in the bios?

    I installed the driver through envy NG though someone on the forum here told me I should just stick with the updates instead.
    I haven't looked into adjusting the amount of memory shared in the bios because I'm kind of scared of tweaking with my bios.
    I should look into that though.

    I am not too sure I remember looking somewhere online about video drivers and envy NG was recommended so I went ahead with it..

    I don't think my BIOS allows me to allocate memory to adjust the amount of shared memory for my video card.
