How to increase Shared memory?

I have searched several times on steps about this but I cannot find any helpful post. All I see is adjust it thru BIOS, however, my BIOS does not contain any Shared Graphics options. I attached a screenshot of my CPU specs. Any help please? I've done this before with my Windows XP however I already forgot how.. please.. I just want to increase the SHARED memory. I know all about the dedicated video card memory.. thanks

IT would help if you updated to service pack 1 as well, and the 200+ updates that follow.
And with that little ram i wouldn't be surprissed if it just stays at the default card

There`s nothing you can do about it, windows and your motherboard control it.

The only thing you can do is add more memory to your computer, with 2 GB you are really low.

And you are running 32 bit, which does not help the situation at all.

Install 64 bit and max out the memory.

Or as I like to say........... Wait for it.............. AddRAM !!!!!!!!!

Post a link to your motherboard and we`ll research it for you.

Or just add a graphics card with it (I don't think a GeForce 6200 is even enough for basic usage for today's standards.)
