Disabling Shared memory?
I was just wondering ? I installed a pci graphics card into my emachines t2862, which has a D845GVSR mobo. I cant figure out how to disable the shared memory now that I have the new card in the comp. In the BIOS all I can find is frame buffer and has presets od 512k/1mb/8mb, has nothing saying disable in it, was wondering if there may be another way to go about disabling the shared memory? any info would be greatly appreciated. TY
Oh and when i tred setting it to 512k it just wouldnt boot up, and I have 1 gig of system ram installed Kingston hyperX pc 2700

Maybe updating the BIOS will give additional features...I was unable to download the release .pdf, but here's the site for updates/drivers for your board.
EDIT: I've been looking through Intel's site on this mobo...all I've found is this:
Q: My system is reporting less memory than what I have installed. Why? A:The D845GVSR BIOS contains an advanced video configuration control that determines how much of the system's RAM can be reserved for use by the on board video. The amount of reserved memory is subtracted from the total installed memory. The difference between installed memory and total available system memory can be seen in the BIOS. The frame buffer size can be reduced in BIOS to make more system memory available.
Looks like you can't totally disable the shared memory, only reduce the size...
