Unfortunately, Dedicated video memory cannot be changed. Only the Allocated system memory. The dedicated video memory is onboard memory, like a video card in a desktop machine has it's own RAM. Your out of luck, unfortunately.

Its seems that my Vaio VGN-FJ170 is been draging RAM. really slow


1-Try installing graphic-cards driver from the vendors home site!
2-Install a Codec pack like k-lite
3-use VLC-player
4-If yor graphics use shared memory , it could be a result of memory module failure.

Best of luck

I am looking to identify how to change the BIOS settings on a sony PC. I want to increase the video memory


Hi...
There is no need to increase the video memory as it is shared with the main memory. But if you are looking to get a good picture quality out of it that will not happen, for that you have change the video card.

Thanks

What is a graphic card and what is the use of it?


thats depends on what the laptop graphics can support also you cannot replace the graphics card in a laptop only a desktop supports this, you cannot play high res games on laptops because they can't support the demand put on them, you will be able to watch just about any movie you want to, if you feel that you want more graphics then you have to buy a graphics accelerator card that plugs into the USB port, you also have to upgrade the memory to support this.


hope this helps


kind regards
