Help with a graphics memory issue? -
| posts: 3
I've been getting an error reguarding having "negative" graphics memory when trying to run a few older games. I read up on the issue and found out that it is due to the games not being able to recognize 2gig+ amounts combined shared system memory, and dedicated video memory on the card.
I have Vista (x64) Ultimate with 4 gigs or RAM, and a video card with 768mb of memory. Vista is automatically assigning and additional 1791mb of shared system memory, resulting in this 2gig limit issue. I was directed here by someone who was helping me try to find a work-around for this issue, that suggested there might be a way to reduce the amount of memory being assigned with Riva tuner, but I have no idea how to go about doing that.
Any help is greatly appreciated. This has been a very frustrating problem I've been getting for a long time, and the list of affected games is just growing. Thanks for any help in advance.
