Did you mean that you reinstalling the same OS as before and now your VRAM reduces, right. Maybe the setting of your VRAM was reset. Try to setting up your VRAM in BIOS menu, it can be accessed by pressing F2 or F12 when starting up your computer, find video menu or something similar then set it up.

wow, well, i think it has to do that your device in charge of the ram is not as great working as on your previous system, check for updates. If it's that much of a problem get a dual boot running on your computer with XP or whatever you had.
