    I have installed 2 x 2 GB SO-DIMMs in an HP 6730b laptop running Mint 13 32-bit.  The BIOS correctly reports 4GB of memory but the OS only reports 2.9 GB of total system memory.  This implies that nearly 1 GB of system memory reserved for the Intel GM 45 graphics chipset.

    Too much system memory is being reserved for the graphics chipset.  Is there a simple way to reduce the amount of system memory reserved?
