Upgrade the shared graphic memory

I have bought acer aspire 6930
it has 4 gb ram (3 gb built in 1 gb external)
working on win xp
shared intel graphics is 128 mb only (max value as per bios)
i am not able to increase it beyond this limit
want to upgrade it to 512 or 1024
the product detail says
intelGraphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD integrated 3D graphics with up to 1759 MB of Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0

Is it possible to upgrade it to 512 mb or 1024 mb of shared graphics?

    Thanks for the reply

    But as I mentioned above
    shared intel graphics option in Bios shows 32,64,128 mb (128mb is the max value)
    i am not able to increase it beyond this limit
    can i increase it in any way beyond 128mb??


    also what does this mean
    On running command DXDIAG shows the approx total memory in display tab as 1024 mb and memory in system tab shows 4040mb?

I have acer 5745 model which is with intel HD graphics.When I go to graphics properties it shows minimum graphics memory of about 128 MB and maximum graphics memory 1051 MB. So,my question is does acer...


You may be able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS configuration.
The laptop's built-in video card most likely uses shared RAM, it uses part of the main RAM models and the more you grab for the video RAM the less main memory is available, You may need to install more RAM to make the laptop run better.

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do


Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
http://www.fixya.com/support/t1531241-acer_5315_series_laptop_get_better
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

More Ram for graphics


You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.
