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:

2 GB for $50 + tax, not bad

That usually applies to desktops with an add-on car, because laptops have integrated video chips.

F2 should be your BIOS access key.

You maybe able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS setting.
The on-board video card uses shared RAM, if you allocate more video RAM then the memory available to the computer/laptop will be reduced by the same amount of RAM, unless you install more RAM.

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

Dell inspiron 1300 Video card upgrade


Sorry you cannot upgrade the graphics on your laptop according to the articles i looked up.
You should call DELL. I think the display card is part of the mother board on your computer. In this case, you cannot change it. In some models you can add some memory to the display card, but this may not make the card faster. Higher amounts of memory allows for more resolution and colours.

You may be able to change the amount of shared ram allocated to the video card in the laptop's BIOS, but since the card is built into the mainboard, it cannot be upgraded.
