    the only way you can increase your ram is by getting the higher grade value of ram then you will fixe it on the slot. there is no flash ram for now.

In Vista, just connect a flash drive and it will ask it should open it or start ReadyBoost. Choose the latter one and choose how much part of it should be used as memory. But to enjoy it full-time, you need to have it connected always. It is generally used when the PC is freezing a lot and you are running a number of things.
XP is not built to do this, but it can still work. See this video. If it doesn't work, try this international site. But this may take a longer time to load on a slow connection.

Can i install graphic card on Acer Aspire 5738Z??

No because the graphics card/chip is built-in on the motherboard. The graphics card uses shared RAM and you maybe able to increase the amount of video RAM in the BIOS setting but this will reduce the main RAM by the same amount.

Upgrade graphics card memory

Most laptops have built-in video chip on the motherboard and they use shared RAM ie part of the main RAM.
To increase the video RAM go into the BIOS setting and then to video RAM to increase the amount of video RAM, this will also redusr the main RAM by the same amount.
You may wish to install more RAM in your laptop to give then laptop more memory.

You maybe able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS setting.
The on-board video card uses shared RAM, if you allocate more video RAM then the memory available to the computer/laptop will be reduced by the same amount of RAM, unless you install more RAM.

Can i upgrade my graphic card

You cannot upgrade the graphics card on a laptop because the video card is built-in on the motherboard.
You may be able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS configuration, but this will reduce the main RAM by the corresponding amount on memory. The video uses shared RAM ie part of the main memory.

I nned to increase the possibilities of grafic card for working with programs that have image treatment and others and need a better grafic card

In your case, you can upgrade your system ram or memory bu not the graphic card.Upgrading your system ram or memory will boost your application loading and performance. Example your memory right is 1GB so make it 3GB by purchasing a 2GB ram. You will see the difference but do not expect to for the graphics just for faster loading and better performance can only give your memory. Have a nice day.

Can i upgrade this laptop with a video card?

The video card is part of the motherboard and there no expansion slots for video cards in a laptop. The only improvement that may be available is to change the video RAM if the BIOS configuration allows it. The video RAM uses part of the main memory (shared RAM) and you may be able to increase the size of the video RAM, but this will reduce the main RAM by the corresponding amount.

To improve performance, increase the RAM from 512Mb to 1Gb or 2Gb.
The graphics card is part of the motherboard and therefore cannot be upgraded, BUT the graphics card used shared RAM (part of the main RAM) and you most likely can increase the video RAM by configuring the video RAM from the BIOS configuration.

Upgrading the Graphics Card? and a RAM question...

I'm sorry but the graphics card/chip in a laptop is built onto the motherboard and cannot be changed,
RAM: there are "two" types of ram in a PC system ram and video ram, I think what you have increased is the system memory, I don't think you have an option to increace your video RAM, perhaps you should consider trading in the laptop for one which is better suited to your requirements

the ram usage for the games you are playing is more so its hanging up. first check the ram usage when this games are installed. the ram usage by the cpu should be less than 60% then only you can play games freely. to overcome this problem increase your ram capacity then you should not have this problem
