    Same problem, but with a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5904. Allocating memory to video may not be available, although Toshiba advertises it as being able to. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. andrew@ccrs-tx.com

Ok, so I talked to a toshiba rep about this (i have a satellite l305-s5911). And what you need to do is restart your laptop, and press ESC+F2 at the same time. It might take a few tries. If that isn't working try pressing F2 repeatedly at the first screen you see when starting your computer (not windows vista screen).

From there you'd be in the internal menu, and you can change the video settings. 

Be FORWARNED the rep also told me that if you happen to change the wrong setting, it MIGHT (not likely though) void you warrenty

Can i upgrade ma graphics memory?


@gentmak

This computer is running on an on-board Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with 128MB-251MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. This means that it's embedded on the motherboard and thus cannot be upgraded. You can only upgrade the graphics card if your computer has removable graphics (such as Nvidia or AMD video graphics adapter) but it's still not recommended since the price of these upgrades will cost half or even 2/3's the cost of your computer.

Cheers.

Can i upgrade my graphics card in this computer?


Since this is a laptop you won't be able to change the video card physically like the desktop computers. This Toshiba model has an ATI Radeon TM X1250 128MB-831MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. So that means by default it can provide a 128MB of graphics power, but if you increase the size of the memory you can also get up to 831MB of graphics memory therefore increasing or upgrading the available video memory of your laptop.

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

Cannot allocate hypermemory


I've noticed that in the bios you can't increase Dedicated video memory because the max for your laptop is 256 but if you check your overall video memory with the shared memory added on by right clicking on your desktop and clicking screen resolution, go to advanced settings, and it should show your adapter with the amount of total graphics memory, the dedicated video memory (video memory of video card), system memory(Mine is 0), and shared video memory ( Ram being accolated together with the graphics card making more video card memory in all). If you switched to XP however, you will probably have less video card memory. Everything should be fine if your on your laptop's default operating system (Mine is windows 7 home premium).

I am lookng for a increase in graphics in my acer aspire 4315


The video card is part of the motherboard and cannot be up graded.
The video RAM uses part of the main RAM but you might be able to increase the allocated video RAM to the max configuration in the BIOS.
Refer to the video specs I copied for you.

  • Graphics Processor / Vendor Intel GMA X3100
  • Video Memory Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0
  • Max Allocated RAM Size 358.0 MB

Hey there, I have an Acer Aspire 7720. I checked in BIOS (v1.25) that only 8MB video memory is avaliable (out of 2GB), and couldn't change the settings. Could you help me solve the problem please?


dynamically allocated memory is borrowed from the system memory; ie, your GPU is using shared memory. Increasing the allocated VRAM is not going to increase your performance by much simply because this kind of video memory is so slow.

You might want to consider updating your graphics driver and checking your temps to make sure that the GPU isn't overheating.

How we can share RAM memory with graphics memory of our PC?


all you have to do is go into the bios, do this by pressing F2 on boot up, when in the bios you need to look for "shared memory" or "graphics memory"
once you have chosen the shared memory you want save settings and exit by pressing F10, the pc will restart and the shared memory will be increased
