Not sure if this is the one the best places to post this, but because I was having problems with my acer laptop when I installed 4GB of RAM in that the nvidia was still being told by the BIOS to assign its dedicated memory where the system ram was.
So I altered the kernel to work with my 4GB and making the kernel push any requests to the new area of space of RAM that I wanted to place the nvidia 256MB of ram.
I am using a 64bit kernel, and my acer laptop is 9815.
I had to alter the /arch/x86/pci/i386.c file within the kernel.
