Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.

  • Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
  • Maximum Graphics Memory: 1341 MB
    The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
From the DirectX report you can see, it currently uses 27 MB only.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.

My current video memory is 119 but max is 762. how do i increase it to max


If you are using a laptop the video card probably uses what is called shared memory for the Graphics Processor. Which means it pulls RAM from the system and uses for processing graphics. Typically the computer controls how much RAM to dedicate to the Graphics Processor. More RAM is always good. I would check in my BIOS. Sometimes they put RAM allotment for the GPU there. If they advertised that you can get a total of 762MB out of your GPU then it wouldn't surprise me. Just remember the more you dedicate to your GPU the less you have for your system.

Increase graphics from 96 to 128


If you have insralled the correct video driver and you cannot increase the VIDEO RAM then it is not possible to increase the bit color from 96 bit to 126 or 256 bit color.
The only way to have a higher bit color is to install a new graphics card that supports up to 256 bit color (this video card will have large cideo RAM).

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.
