  1. HI,

    im new here and probably sound like an ***** but...

    I have just git a new computer

    a Dell Optiplex GX280

    my video card is in the mother board. it is a Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family and the driver I have loaded is ialmrnt5.dll

    im not very experienced and need ur help heres the problem....

    the chipset vide card thingy can use 128mb of RAM but its only using 8mb of RAM. I have gone into setup when the computer starts up and looked at video card options and it lets me choose either 8mb of RAM or 1mb of RAM but I nedd 180.

    Is it the wrong driver? If so can u tell me where to get the right one. Is it a configuration setting? please tell m how to fix it

    What do you expect?
    You got a Dell, and one specifically for business purposes.
    You can't do anything that us PC-enthousiasts normally would do.
    If you need (why?) 128MB, then hope that PC has a PCI-e slot for a new graphics card, otherwise forget it.
    Dells are hardly upgradable.
    Optiplexes are NOT for gaming.
    Buying a Dell for pleasure purposes is the worst mistake you can make!
