    I have a HP PC with Award Bios. This BIOS provides a maximum of 16 MB to be reserved for Graphics. I have 320 MB RAM and would like to increase the amount of RAM reserved for Graphics. The HP site has got only the old version of BIOS (relase date -2001). What should I do to increase the RAM reserved for Graphics (if suppose I go for BIOS upgrade). What precautions should I take while updating the BIOS?

    if everything is working fine,don't go for BIOS flashing,it's not for the faint hearted,since it can (oops) not be recovered if any thing goes wrong.
    u can not get more shared memory with BIOS upgrade.
    but in order to improve performance u can increase the page file of the system and install LATEST graphics drivers and DirectX.

    I suggest thet u go for the bios update if it allows to reserve more ram to the graphics . flashing bios if the newer version is available is recommended . :D
