    increasing graphics memory

    I am using Windows XP Professional SP2 desktop with an Nvidia graphics card. Yesterday I download a tool which generate the report of graphics and mine report is as follows:
    • Driver Version:
    • Operating System: Windows XP* Professional, Service Pack 2 (5.1.2600)
    • Default Language: English
    • DirectX* Version: 9.0
    • Physical Memory: 247 MB
    • Minimum Graphics Memory: 8 MB
    • Maximum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    • Graphics Memory in Use: 9 MB
    • Processor: x86
    • Processor Speed: 3065 MHZ
    • Device Revision: 04
    • Accelerator in Use: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family
    • Video BIOS: 3402

    Now as shown in the report, Graphics Memory is in use is just 9MB whereas the total graphics memory is 128MB. Then why only 9 mb is in use? How can I increase this figure to use the full memory?

    I dont know how to do that if you have assembled a separate Graphic card but if case of integrated graphics card, you can change the amount of memory allocated to the card in the BIOS. Restart and enter the bios. See if there is any such option. Let me know the result.
