Windows 7: Shared system memory - GPU

04 Jan 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
Shared system memory - GPU

I have a nvidia graphics card of 2gb. When I saw my system configuration I found that from my graphics card 764mb is being shared with my system memory. I want it to be 0 because I use most of my graphics card for animation purposes. Many tell that you can change in the Bios settings. But how? Need help

Well; you can look in the bios; and if there is not a place there to be able to change the amount of memory used; once windows is loaded you should be able to change it there I do believe. Is there a utility that came with your graphics card like mine did to change some of the settings? If so i might suggest trying that to see if you can change the amount of memory used.

Be sure you understand that it is system memory that is being shared. Memory that is part of the video card is not and cannot be used for any other purpose.
