Re: Lenovo Y400 graphic ram

The GMA950 Intel chip has a software controlled memory allocation, you can't really change it. But if you go to Intel Driver tray in the task bar, under 3D settings there should be a drop down panel that let you choose relative allocation of RAM video ram, you should choose high rather normal or low.

 

The GMA950 should be to handle 224 mb of ram, but under XP it can only use 128 mb.

Don't use the Intel driver, use the Lenovo driver set.
