As far as Im aware >any integrated graphics card use the system memory ,so takes a chunk out of the memory thats available . The settings for the graphics memory share are in the bios.Adding more system ram does not require a grapics driver.

advise which computer model/ motherboard data you have & someone will help explain how to upgrade it if thats what you wish to do.

I think Royalflush is saying they have fitted a 128mb graphics card, not added 128mb ram. Am I right?

Does it work at all?

Again, more details of the pc and the graphics card really needed.

when i installed my graphics card (pci express) it automatically disabled the on board graphics, and all i had to do was download the latest drivers from manufactures site

Chances are if you boot into the BIOS there will be a section in there which clearly mentions VGA graphics - it will have 64MB chosen so should be obvious to spot. Simply change it to the slot you have used ie AGP or PCI-Express or disable it. Either way it should be fairly simple. As for uninstalling the drivers, just find the card entry in Device Manager, open it and choose uninstall Driver.

Need more info on the card such as FX5200, 7600GS, 6200 etc

Google doesn't throw anything up for Medion MT277G; any documentation with the pc which might help us? Failing that, is the model number of the motherboard visible on it?
