You are wrong :)

 

I don't know what GPU do you have. I have a G560 that has Intel HD graphics, and it has 64 MB dedicated video memory and 1632 MB shared (these last MBs are dinamicaly shared, that's means non exclusive use).

 

Upgrade to 64 bits. Otherwise, keep finding an inexistent solution.

Well, that probes that you need tu upgrade to 64 bits.

 

I had a worst GPU than you, but I don't have any memory problem.

 

Just change to 64 bits and avoid headaches.

 

PS: You can see in your current 32 bits OS how many memory uses your GPU. Check it.

PS: I have Windows 7 in spanish, so maybe the options are named different.

Not all OS's are the same, All that KB article says is that the system will use it, not you. If you want to use the 3.5gigs then you need 64bit Win7. I have XP 32bit and Ubuntu 64bit. In XP I only have 2gigs of ram when 32bit should have gotten 3. In Ubuntu I get 3.8gigs. The .5 is going to your GPU and there is nothing you can do about it.

@amin this is my last post about this. Use a 64 bits operative system.

 

Best regards.
