How to increase the video memory of my laptop

I got an acer aspire 4730z with an Intel Graphics Media accelerator 4500MHD with up to 1759 MB DVMT 5.0 (64 MB Dedicated Memory, up to 1659 MB Shared Memory). But when I check my system,its video memory is only 64mb, even though that I already have 2gb RAM.
How can I increase it to atleast 256mb or more?

The bios link for upgradation of bios memory comes as disabled. also there is no way to run a hard disk check from BIOS. This sucks, really!

This is done in the BIOS screen. Upon startup of the computer, press the key or key combination the screen tells you to in order to enter the BIOS. Somwhere in there there will be a selection for video memory that you can change. Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating. :c)

About graphic card of ace aspire 5335 and rendering


As this chip has no dedicated video memory it will be dependent on how much RAM you have installed in your notebook. Maximum amount it can share from system memory is 384MB. It will probably be capable of rendering the scene but depending on the complexity of your scene it could take a while.
For more info on your integrated graphics card which is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD visit http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Graphics-Media-Accelerator-4500MHD-GMA-X4500MHD.9883.0.html

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