How do I do this from a software perspective?  I opened up the DirectX Diagnostics tool from c:\Program Files\DirectX\Setup, and it says 4MB.  I order an 8MB video card.

tadams,

Open your case and look on the ATI all-in-wonder on the card there is a slot to add a DIMM if there is not a DIMM in this slot then you didn't get the card that you ordered.

The slot is a raised white plastic slot and the DIMM would be inserted parallel to the ATI card.

The DX diagnostics under the Display>Adapter would tell you your approx. total memory, if that's the program you run and it tells you that you only have 4Mb then chances are you've been had.

C:\Program Files\Directx\setup\dxdiag.exe

I took out the memory module, and the DirectX still says 4MB, so it must obviously have some sort of bug.

The reason I gave whoami an average score, is because I asked for a software answer, not an open your case kind of answer.

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Thanks tadams ,

But for your problem there was no software fix.

I don't think the DX diagnostics has bug.  I've seen it reports from 2Mb to 16Mb.  I believe you've taken out the additional 4Mb ram module, the others should be on board.  Maybe the additional 4Mb is defective?

Oh, a easy step to verify is to find out the max. resolution and color depth.

I can't seem to get the video card to allow anything over 1024x768 in any color depth.  If I could, I wouldn't even have asked how to find out how much memory I had.  Anyone have any ideas on this?

4Mb should get you at least 1600x1200 in hi-color if your monitor supports it, make sure your monitor is correctly identified by windows.
