  1. Hello,

    I have bought a Lenovo 3000 G530 4446 Laptop:

    The man told me it is a 256MB graphics card (Onboard)..

    But i have been wondering until now and have not yet made sure what graphic card it is can you please tell me?

    What i see in the Advanced Settings in Windows about the adapter is this:

    Can you tell me what is: Total Available Graphics Memory - Dedicated Video Memory - System Video Memory - Shared system Memory??

    Is the Dedicated Video Memory the value of the graphics card itself?? 32MB??

    Please give me a constant answer.....

    Dedicated is just what it sounds like. I think of it as a "minimum," amount of video memory. The shared memory is basically what the rest of your unused pc ram will let you use.

    In turn, he kind of lied, but not really. Or maybe he didnt know(giving the benefit of the doubt).
