Question about Computers & Internet
Hi i have an aspire 4315-300512Mi laptop..and just upgraded my ram to 2.5gig..and i want to increase my shared video card's memory..and as i have browsed through its spec it says that my video card is a
Graphic subsystem name Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 358 MB (shared)..so this means that its max memory cap. is 358 right? and as i have looked into the bios.. my video card's memory is only set to 10MB.. anyone know how i could increase it?..i cant seem to change it through bios..
If there's nothing in the bios, then check the intel video driver/management software installed on the laptop. Also consider calling Acer support. They are excellent.

it is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.
some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.
most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,
but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)
the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)
