Mobile Intel R 945GM Express Chipset Family

 

As I suspected that graphic card doesn't have dedicated memory so it uses some of the installed RAM.

 

On a laptop there isn't a way around that.

Usually you have to check the machine manual.
 
There are also some websites like http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/advisor but some times the information isn't accurate, always try to confirm using the machine or motherboard manual.
 
Sometimes the manual doesn't say if certain memory value is accepted or not and we have to test on the machine, is the only true way to know if it works or not. In situation like that if you can go to a trusted local store to test before buying.
