well what he is probably talking about is sharing some ram with the video. this is usually done from the setup. I think to get into setup on that machine would be to hit the f1 key before the windows comes up. It also might tell you at the bottom or top of the screen. If all you see is the emachine logo you can sometimes get rid of that by hitting either tab or esc keys. Once in the setup there MAY be a setting for how much ram to share with video.... remember this does take away ram from the system.... so if you have 64MB ram and share 8mb with your video the computer only has 56 mb left for the os and programs.
