Does your motherboard have onboard graphics?

The mobo uses onboard graphics.

There's the answer some of your RAM is used by the graphics circuit, this is mainly a cost saving measure.
I would reccomend adding more memory at least 128MB extra.

Thats why - you will have 64MB for graphics out of the 128MB - hence XP Pro reports 64MB (the remainder).

As a consequence your machine is under the recommended spec for XP Pro and you should add RAM as a matter of priority - an additional 512MB would be best
