Question about Computers & Internet
I have an HP laptop with Vista operating system. When trying to install the scanner mouse I get the message Video memory:128 mb of dedicated memory or 384 of shared memory needed. I have 130 gb on my C drive. Do I need to add something to my laptop? I obviously can run videos on it already. Thanks
It's refering to Video Memory/Ram/Shared Memory, not your 130GB Storage Space. That would depend on the Graphics and Ram you have and how much memory is Shared. Perhaps this will help: http://www.brookstone.com/webassets/pdf/817873p_manual.pdf

You can put up to Windows XP. If do, I would suggest to add memory and bigger hard drive.
Or if the pc has Windows Product Key Tag, and what ever the operating system it indicates then you can re-install that operating system.
Hope this helps and good luck.

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)

The simple answer is you can't upgrade as the video and sound are on the same "card" which is built in to the mother board.

Usually, the video card RAM is part of the video hw and can be shared with the systems RAM but not the other way around.

There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:
However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.
If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.
