- The system is using 64-bit of Windows 7
- The System has over 8GB of physical memory installed
In the Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization ->Display ->Screen Resolution Panel, click [Advanced Settings]. Under the "Adapter" tab, you will see the Shared System Memory value. However, if you use a tool such as the 64-bit version videomemory.exe to read the Shared System Memory setting, the system Shared Memory settings appear to be closer to the expected value.
For example, if you have 12GB of physical memory installed, the correct Shared System Memory can be (12*1024-512MB)/2=5888 MB. You will see a number very close to that using videomemory.exe tool. However, you will see a number similar to 1792 MB in the Display application adapter tab. (Note: This number slightly varies on different hardware settings.)
For more information on how Windows calulate the System Shared Memory, please refer to the following website:

The videomemory.exe is a part of DirectX SDK tools, for more information please refer to the following websit:
