My laptop specks are as listed below

Amilo Xi 1554,
T7200 DUO PROCESSOR
TWO 120 GIG HARDDRIVES RAID CONFIGURATION
1900 ATI RADEON MOBILTY 256 MEG DDR3
WIN VISTA EYC EYC,

Hi all need advise please,

I have just purchased a new laptop amilo XIi 1554
on Friday 16/2/07

I bought this from Nice PC Ltd

My problem is that the graphics card which is a ati mobility radeon 256 meg memory,
and the laptop has 2gig memory,

the graphics card shares 763mb of the main memory,
which means it is using 1019mb,
it cuts down the system memory by quite a bit,

I have been on to tech support whom say this cant be changed,
I have been in the Bios and when you scroll along to the Advance section
you cant get in to alter the shared memory.

My point is I bought this laptop for Video editing etc etc,
and the programs I use i.e Adobe affter effects, Prem Pro are
Memory Intensive,

As I now feel This laptop is not fit for the purpose,
UNLESS someone can tell me how to get into the Bios and alter the shared mem that the Graphics card is using,

I mean why give the graphics card so much memory,

I have spoken to the technicians at Fujitsui and they were a no help at all
I dont think they want to tell you how to acess the bios etc etc

CAN ANYONE HELP,

This Laptop is advertised as a 2gig machine and a dedecated graphics card,
It says nothing about the shared mem

Can any one tell me how to get into the bios after I press F2 and scroll along to advance etc etc You can not acess anything
Im told this is done in hardware,

if I take the cmos batery out would that reset the bios an would i be able to get in
TO RESET.

I dont want to have to send it back it is a nice laptop,

SO ANYONE HELP, HELP, PLEASE

any advice appreciated

Consider the question of shared memory. I think it does just that - first uses the dedicated 256Mb of graphics memory and only then shares mainboard memory upto the level stated. If you don't need more than 256Mb then it won't necessarily use any mainboard memory and if you do need more you may be very pleased it does so as to preserve performance.

If you bought the computer locally you could try returning it. Otherwise you have the Distance Selling regulations that allow you to return it but you are running out of time for that possibility.
