ATI Radeon Express 200m - Changing shared memory

By BunkFace

  1. I have an ASUS notebook with an ATI Radeon Express 200m video card which takes up 128mb shared memory. I only have 512 mb of RAM so I want the shared memory to be 64mb only. I asked the technicians where I bought the laptop to change the shared memory and they said that it cannot be changed (they've checked the BIOS and found out there is no option to change the shared memory there - and they said that you can only change the shared memory thru the BIOS). Is it possible to change the shared memory used by the card? If it is, is there another way?

    Maybe or it could have it's own independent chipset. That routes to the "main bios".
