Advice 1: How to allocate memory to video card

Some stationary and mobile computers use integrated graphics chips. Their application allows to significantly reduce the cost of the computer. In addition, the presence of such a device extends the life of the laptop battery life.
How to allocate memory to video card
Instruction
1
The main drawback of the integrated videoipod is a relatively weak performance. Built-in video cards use the computer's memory. To improve the quality of graphics in some games will change the settings in the graphics card.
2
Many integrated graphics initially use a small amount of RAM. When you run a powerful graphics application, the device automatically gets the desired number of segments of RAM. Change the maximum value of the used volume. Restart the computer or laptop.
3
Open the BIOS menu by pressing the desired key. As a rule, the description of the function keys available in the first boot menu. After opening the main window menu BIOS go to Advanced Chipset Features (Advanced Options).
4
Remember that the names of certain items may be different depending on the motherboard model of your computer.
5
Now highlight the Frame Buffer Size and press Enter. Set the maximum memory allocation. In most cases it makes no sense to allow to use more than 30% of total RAM. This will only lead to slowing down your computer.
6
Some versions of the motherboard allow you to change not only the maximum but also the minimum value of the allocated RAM. Open the menu AGP (PCI Express) to find the field Apertura size.
7
Increase the current value of the volume doubled. If your video card already uses 256MB, then changing this option will not bring the desired result.
8
Also change the settings of video card you can use the software. Download the program from the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard or the CPU. Configure the integrated chip, using the selected application.

Advice 2 : How to increase memory of graphics card

Modern video games require a very powerful computer configuration. The most important component for gaming is the video card of the computer. The power of the graphics card in turn depends on the processor speed, graphics card, amount and speed of memory. To increase the memory only integrated video cards. But there is a way to increase the overall memory speed.
How to increase memory of graphics card
You will need
  • Computer, video card, the program ATItool
Instruction
1
If you have an integrated video card, to increase the amount of memory in the BIOS. Be aware of the fact that integrated graphics do not have their own memory and take all the resources from RAM. If your computer has little memory, add the amount of VRAM is useless. This will reduce the overall system performance.
2
Turn on the computer and continuously press the Del key. You will find yourself in the BIOS menu. Then look for the row of the Video RAM. Select it and press Enter. A line will appear where you can choose how much memory from the RAM will pick up the video card. Select the desired value. Save the BIOS settings. After restarting the computer the volume computer video card will increase.
3
If you have a separate discrete graphics card, amount of video memory of this card can't be increased. In the discrete graphics card installed memory chips, the memory in these cards is strictly fixed. But this does not mean that the speed of the memory in such cards cannot be increased.
4
Download a universal program for overclocking memory speeds of video cards ATItool. This is the most simple and easy for beginners program. There is support for Russian language.
5
Run the program ATItool. A window will appear with the available options. From the list select the tab "Acceleration". Find the tab MEMORY CLOCK. Note, the interface depending on the version of the program may be different. If your version of the program ATItool completely Russified, it is likely that instead of the MEMORY CLOCK can be written in "memory Speed". Move the slider slightly to the right. You will see that the rate of speed of the memory increased slightly. Save the settings by pressing OK.
6
Now you need to check the possibility of working new settings. In the program menu, click "Open 3D window". Begin the process of testing the settings of the graphics card. Processing time may exceed 20 minutes. During this process, follow screen. If the image on screen gets distorted, white dots appear, it means that you have exceeded the overclocking speed of the graphics card. Follow the same procedure, only the slider is set to a smaller value. If the test was successful, then the memory can work at this frequency. You can try to overclock even more.
7
In this way, determine the maximum frequency of the video memory, where the test in the 3D window will occur normally without distortion. When defining the maximum operating frequency, save the settings.

Advice 3 : How to change the settings of the graphics card

Many computer users, particularly gamers and those who have to work with graphics processing programs, are faced with the problem of a lack of resources capacity of the video card. In fact, these resources can be increased by changing the appropriate settings of the video card or using software tweakers that modify the frequency of the equipment.
How to change the settings of the graphics card
You will need
  • computer;
  • - a programme to increase the graphics performance.
Instruction
1
Download the Riva Tuner Tweaker from official website manufacturer. Install it, following the instructions of the installation wizard. This program increases the frequency of core and memory card.
2
Open the installed program. In the popup main window, select "driver setting", click on the button indicating the version of the driver. You will see a drop down menu. Click there on the icon with the image of the video card. Enter the new values of frequencies. Be extremely careful. To verify the results, use the "Test" button. If the monitor will not be noticeable artifacts, and other defects in the work card, click on application and save the results.
3
Change graphic settings in the game menu, this applies in particular to filtration. Means bilinear texture mapping on a 3D object - it allows to avoid sharp color transitions in the picture game. MIP-mapping increases the performance of the graphics card in the game that improves the image quality. Trilinear filtering combines both of these points. Anisotropic allows to smooth the line image inclined surfaces and diagonal lines.
4
In the control panel of the video card configuration configure work adapter driver. The main thing here is to find a balance between performance and quality, because when you increase the number of reproduced frames per second, the speed of operation of the device slows down.
5
Change the settings of the graphics card, adjust them for each application or game. For this purpose the menu item "Change 3D settings" go to tab application settings. Adjust the adapter to suit your requirements for picture quality and performance each game.
Note
The artificial change of the frequency of the video card may damage your equipment.
Useful advice
Update the video driver as often as possible.

Advice 4 : How to combine two cards

Modern motherboards are available with two PCI-Exrpess. This improvement allows the motherboard to support the work with two graphics cards. Two video cards work in tandem, improving the graphics and overall computer performance. Also, this hardware solution will help to stretch the picture on two monitors.
How to combine two cards
You will need
  • - two graphics cards;
  • - special connectors.
Instruction
1
Carefully inspect the motherboard or refer to the documentation to her. On support work with two graphics cards would indicate the presence of two PCI-Express connectors, and mark SLI or CrossFire in the documentation or on the packaging. The connection type depends on the types of graphics cards. As a rule, connect only the same graphics card, that is, they must be from the same manufacturer and model of video cards must be identical.
2
Take two identical video cards. Make sure that both boards support the work in "command" mode. Examine the packaging or documentation on the video card — if it is a video card with Nvidia chipset, look on the package marked SLI, Radeon if – then mark must be CrossFire.
3
Install both graphics cards into the PCI-Express connectors, pre-unplugging power from the computer. Turn on the computer. After the operating system install to the hard drive software from the driver disk for the motherboard to activate dual graphics cards.
4
Implement the work of the two cards physically depending on the purpose of the modification. Connect the monitor using a special adapter, if you put two video cards to improve performance. Or connect the graphics card to two monitors, if you need to display a big size image. As a rule, two monitors can be connected with a single graphics card, so before combining carefully think about why you need it.
5
Do not experiment with hardware that does not support explicitly the dual mode operation. No additional firmware two graphics cards will not work together, if not met the above conditions.

Advice 5 : How to allocate more memory

To your computer worked quickly and without interruption, it is necessary that there was a sufficient amount of operational memory. At any time you can increase with the help of special tools and planks of RAM.
How to allocate more memory
You will need
  • computer;
  • - operating system;
  • - additional strips of RAM.
Instruction
1
Those who daily work at the computer are often faced with the fact that their working tool often freezes for a while and then just shut off. But sometimes, sitting at the computer screen, I want not only to work but also to play with favorite toys. This problem occurs because of a lack of operational memory on the computer .
2
Often it manifests itself in those moments when the computer boots up. Together with the right programs are started is not important, which occupy part of the memory. The system starts literally torn between them, deciding to whom to give priority. Eventually hangs the entire computer. To solve this problem, by removing all lower-priority programs from the menu, which is responsible for startup.
3
Another reason for the lack of RAM may be insufficient amount of physical or virtual memory. To solve the problem we must first understand which one is more loaded. Check the amount of virtual memory in the file upload using the toolbar. Set its size to make it twice the physical memory. After this operation the computer will need rebooting.
4
Check the size of physical memory in the following way: "My computer" - "Properties". If you see that the physical memory larger than 4 gigabytes, then the best solution is to install a new, 64-bit OSes. If the limit is memory less, it is best to buy in store additional bar memory and use it to increase the disk space.
5
Most often in computer stores you can find such types of RAM like DDR2 and DDR3, since they are used in the creation of modern computers. It can be supplied with special tools, then it is necessary to establish acquired strap memory.
