please enlighten me. I stopped messing with PC hardware when I had to work with them, and now I know nothing about anything.
A friend has a neat little netbook - Asus eeepc 1015bx, but could never make it work properly. Too slow. Gave it to me to 'sort'. The problem is it has 1GB RAM (in 2012), and no upgrade slot (again, in 2012). Runs Win7 starter.
Now it's a Brazos system - C30. Decent little CPU actually. But it turns out it's allocating ~350MB of it's 1GB RAM to the GPU by default, and as a result is disk swapping like crazy. It crawls along, even in the simplest tasks.
It's got a 1024x800 screen. What business has it sharing 350MB of ram in the first place, and how on Earth do I override it? There's nothing in the BIOS, or in the AMD control panel app? I figure it needs 64MB at most!
I had a look into Brazos tweaker, but that seemed to be a clock/voltage thing only. Google is not really helping me either...
