  1. To my knowledge you can't, but you could possibly change how shared memory is used.
  2. Hello and welcome to the forums:)
    Sorry but you can't increase the graphic card's memory
  3. If u mean that some kind like hyper memory, i know some onboard cpu has an ability to do that, with adding more ram memory then the onboard gpu's memory is increased...
    maybe u can explain it better than me, Maz?
  4. I haven't heard anything about increasing the VGA's memory,as boonality said you may be able to change the shared memory but i don't think increasing the VGA's RAM is possible
  5. umm... i mean, yes u cannot increasing the dedicated memory, but u can increasing the shared memory, as i said before: adding more ram...
  6. Right

    adding more shared memory is not help much, really, onboard graphic card is weak.
    one more thing is u just cannot upgrade your graphic card, it soldered on the board itself... :)

  10. yup, that's right... :)
