2. As it is shared will the memory cant be used by processes?

3.If yes how can i release the shared memory, via bios settings?

i use win7 ultimate 32bit..
thank you..

This means that when the video card is in use, especially in higher display modes, it will take some of the memory normally dedicated to other computing activities and use it for its own tasks. Thus the computer 'shares' its memory with the graphics card.
You cannot alter shared memory, it is system managed.
