  1. K so I am completely new to any advanced modding and stuff...or basic...I have no idea. Either way I would like to know how to access the bios for my ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 igp video card(shared memory) so I can bump up the memory from 64mb to 128mb. I have checked my system specs and I should be able to do it. But I just don't know how to do it. Help is muchly appreciated.

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    Is this a Laptop?
    What make and model?
    Generally the bios will have the settings for this, hitting "delete" durring boot up will get you there. Laptops are different.
    Look for thr agp aperture & shared memory, they are not the same thing.
    Set aperture to 1/4 of video ram. If you set the shared system ram to 128 then aperture would be 32.
