Default shared memory

I have a compaq presario SR1303WM

With An VIA/S3G Unichrome IGP video card.

IVe recently noticed that the reason my systems been telling me i have only 192 MB's of memory, is that it is shared memory with the video card.

And iw as wondering, is there any way of un-sharing this memory with the video card, and using it as it would be used regurlary?

But then, would it not be able to play ANY games, or watch/play/do anything containg or using video?

Thanks for any of the help.
