Adding more video memory

Video memory is memory reserved for use by the on-
board video controller. More video memory can
provide more colours or higher resolutions to an
extent determined by the capabilities of your monitor.
If your computer has 2 Mbyte of video memory, you
can upgrade it to the maximum of 4 Mbytes by
adding a SODIMM (Small Outline DIMM) module.
Turn off the computer and unplug all power
Take suitable anti-static precautions and remove
the right side panel. For more information see
the "Anti-static precautions" section in the Safety
& Regulatory Notices at the start of this manual.
Remove any expansion cards that impede access
to the video memory upgrade socket (see the
diagram at the start of this chapter).
Unpack the upgrade kit. Hold the SODIMM
chip by its edges and be careful not to touch the
metal pins.
