    This is the first time I've used Parallels, but I'm having a problem with my RAM.

    My Mac has 16GB of ram, I am running a 32-bit Windows 7, but it's only reading that I have 1 GB of RAM. How/where do I allocate how much ram to allow it to use?

    It's also not reading my video card. I have a 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5750, but it's reading me as not having a video card. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    With the VM shut down:

    Virtual Machine menu -> Configure -> General to set memory size of VM, up to 8 GB

    Virtual Machine menu -> Configure -> Hardware tab -> Video to set VRAM size and use 3d acceleration.

    Where do you see that it's not using your video card?
