Has anyone tried playing a blu-ray disc with a system that only has
64MB Dedicated Video RAM? Will it work?

shared under Vista.
2.33 GHz Core 2 Duo

1280x800x32bpp, double-buffered, requires only 8 MB dedicated video RAM. In
the worst case for Blu Ray with hardware decoding, the RAM requirements may
double, to 16 MB. You got 64 MB, more than enough for everything except 3D
games.

Be sure anti-aliasing (AA) is set to "application controlled" in nVidia's
control panel. If you can't find this option anywhere (typical with laptop
preloaded drivers), assume it's set that way already by default.
