My little brother purchased 2 GB of RAM for his Compaq Presario SR2020NX Sorry, used Walmart for Specs.
and also bought a nVidia GeForce 6600
Card Specs.
with intentions of putting forth some of his RAM for his video card's usage.
However, his BIOS is a horrible minimal customization BIOS.
I've attached some pictures of both the the BIOS and Control panel, I think that something
can be done in picture "untitled5"
(With all the different things)
Don't really know too much about this so you're gonna have to give me some somewhat easy instructions.
Ask if you need more pictures.

THANKS!!!

A nVidea 6600 graphics card doesn't have shared RAM, you'll only see this on an onboard video card.

hmm, well, do you think that he could get more out of his on-board video chipset by reallocating much of his RAM than he could by keeping his Graphics card????

(sorry probably unclear)
what im trying to say is. . .
Would he be better with his onboard graphics or his PCI-E card???
