Welcome to Bleeping Computer, ed fred.
You should be able to go into the BIOS and reduce your on board video memory to a lower setting. Perhaps as low as 32Mbs. I have not seen a motherboard that would allow you to set the on board video to 0, as of yet.
Hope this helps.

not sure how to get into the bios.


Typically you just need to reboot, wait for the beep, and start tapping the F8 key to get into BIOS.

silmaril8n is close. F8 will get you into Safe Mode. Usually F2 will get you into the BIOS. Simple mistake. :thumbsup:
If you could list your component we could tell you if your memory is compatible with High Density memory. What brand and model computer do you have?

Each manufacturer decides what key to use to access the BIOS. The easisest way to do this is to watch the screen when it boots. Usually in the lower right or left corner will be a mention of how to access the BIOS (or setup).

If that's not possible (my new MSI motherboard is this way by default), reading the manual may help. Otherwise, search for your model at the manufacturer's website using "Bios" in the search terms.

Or, you can post your make and model here and we'll see if we can find it.
