Memory Problem starting X Window

when I try to start X by using the command 'startx', it just gives me an error message that says less than 6MB AGP, cannot proceed. I tried going into the BIOS to find a setting that set the memory, but I didn't find anything. Also, when I check the log file it says 16000MB was requested but only 3000MB found, and I'm sure my card has more memory than that. By the way, my card is an Intel 810 Graphics Controller, and I believe it's integrated. If some one could help me with this stuff, maybe I'll finally be able to start X, becuase I've had Linux for almost a week and still haven't seen the X window GUI

Could you post your /etc/X11/XF86Config-4 file? It's your X configuration. Especially "Monitor", "Graphic device" and "Screen" parts.
