We have a Fujitsu Siemens ESPRIMO Mobile V5535.

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Intel Celeron M 530 @ 1.73GHz
1.0GB Single-Channel DDR2
SiS Mirage 3 Graphics

The graphics card (SiS Mirage 3 Graphics) has 64MB of dedicated memory. It was using 256MB of shared memory but I have recently changed it to 128MB.

The only graphics intensive task we use the laptop for is watching H.264/Xvid/DivX/DVD movies.

If I was to lower the shared memory to 64MB would we be likely to see any adverse effects?

Nothing that cannot be fixed by setting it back

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
