    Was using Systool and looking at the Hardware Monitoring it says my total physical memory is 191, I asked somewhere else the said it might be the onboard graphics, but how do I turn off the onboard graphics and if its not that is there a prog I can get that lets me adjust it? Because I am pretty sure I had one what let me adjust it but I can’t find it. Any ideas

    What are your system specs ? Motherboard make and model ?
    Do you actually have a video card that isn't onboard ? It will be a bit difficult to turn off any onboard graphics if you don't have a second video card fitted.

    YEA,
    Please put a sig together so we will know what hardware you are running.
    Be sure to enclude the model #.
    We can surely help you better if you would do this.

    The rest is allocated to the onboard video card, you could reduce the amount allocated to it, but it would lower 3d performance.

    small question, how much memory is installed, and how is it devided between modules ?
    are you using double or single sided memory ?
    btw, if you have a 64mb+128mb configuration, some programs will show 191mb due to rounding up or the way they calculate memory,
    and onboard video is usualy disabled automaticly when a AGP card is inserted, if it does not, please refer to the manual of your motherboard,
