To my knowledge you can't, but you could possibly change how shared memory is used.

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?

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

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... :)
