    You can't change the values, the video memory is integrated into the motherboard, its not changeable and you can't add to it.

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.

How can I upgrade/improve the capabilities of my Inspiron 1200


The best and quickest improvement is to add more RAM. Add another 512 Mb of RAM. If you already have a 512 Mb of RAM module then add another 512 Mb RAM module. If your laptop has 2X256 Mb RAM modules then you need to remove these and insert 2X512 Mb RAM modules.
The reason why you have 504 Mb RAM is that the video card has grabbed 8Mb of RAM off the main memory.

Dell memory issues


if the ram chips are not compatible you need to get ones that are.
your unit supports this type

Memory type 1.8-V SODIMM DDR-2
Minimum memory 256 MB
Maximum memory 2 GB

you can still put 2 gigs in it but it has to be the above type
here is a link to a manual
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins6000/en/om/D5181bk5.pdf

and are you surprised that they say it will work. Thats why you have techs here, because the manufacturers hire people that don;t know from adam. same thing with apple. the techs you call are usless. Return your ram chips to dell and have them send you the ones that work.

Getting access to bios in Dell Inspiron 1300


No, The amount of RAM the integrated video uses is dynamically adjusted depending on the loading of the video and the total amount of RAM installed.

If less than 512 MB RAM, the video is limited to 64MB, 512 to 2 GB max video RAM is 128 MB.

If you want to upgrade RAM to improve performance, check the link below:
