Limit Video Memory?

Guest Derb

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

first sorry for my bad english, I'm from Italy :)

I own a Dell Inspiron 9400 notebook with a Geforce Go 7900 GS card and I keep getting blue screens because of a partially broken video memory.

Everything works fine (just finished CoD4 and Stalker) as long as I set the game details to LOW.

It seems that the blue screens appear whenever I try to enable features that increase the usage of video memory, such as higher texture resolutions.

I tried different tools to check my memory and they reported several errors, so I'm pretty sure it isn't a thermal problem.

So I am curious if there is any possibility to limit the amount of video memory that the card is using (i mean the video memory on the card, not the shared memory)

I hope that whith such a solution the BSODs would disappear and I would be able to increase the detail level to a higher level.

best regard,

That seems to be a driver problem or overheating gpu, not 'partially broken video memory' if such a thing exists.
