I don't recall what kind of machine or vidcard you have, but for a few
years there recently Dell was shipping BIOSes that only allocated 1MB
RAM to the integrated video system. If you have an integrated video
system, you might jump into the computer's BIOS and see if there's any
tweaking you can do there.
