I have an old HP desktop with an onboard Intel 82865G running Windows XP (SP3), and while it does 1920x1080, if something requires more than 96 MB of video memory, it crashes, or fails, or generates an error message saying it's trying to pass checks the Intel 82865G can't cash.
That's really irritating. Trying to watch a movie in full screen fails because the D3D renderer says we've hit the max and can't have more.
So, my question is as follows: is there a way to override this glass ceiling or am I stuck with a 96 MB cap? The system itself has 1.5 GB of RAM, of which (currently) 96 MB is shared with the video controller, but if possible I'd like to take that up higher, like 128 or even 256. Can it be done?
