Do you have a question about this? It's just telling you that this is not a tested and supported device:

Not even a web browser open? Web browsers consume surprisingly large amounts of VRAM these days. And no external monitor plugged in?
That's right. Nothing open at all. I tried it again, and this time it said I only had 576mb of VRam even though I have 2gigs. Any thoughts what would be taking up that other 3/4 of my vram?
Thanks for your help,
Hmmm. That seems like a lot of VRAM to be unaccounted for.
We're releasing an update next week that improves several things in this area. I recommend trying again after updating at the end of next week to see if it's working more sensibly.
