Hi Daryl, I think you need to verify and changeVirtual Memory settings. Please follow:

'Control Panel' -> 'System' -> 'Advanced' -> 'Performance Settings' -> 'Advanced' -> 'Virtual Memory ( Button Change )'

and set values for 'Initial size (MB)' and 'Maximum size (MB)' and then press button 'Set'. For example,

'Initial size (MB)' <- 8192
'Maximum size (MB)' <- 32768

8192 MB = 8 GB
32768 MB = 32 GB

Best regards,
Sergey

@Sergey I think that Daryl's postis reffering to Video Memory not virtual memory.

@Daryl
If you are talking about the shared Video Memory you have to change the settings in your BIOS.

Sorry, guys. 'VRAM' abbreviation confused me.
