Yesterday I bought ACER Aspire 5730z notebook.
The graphic memory of integrated graphic Intel 4500M is only 64Mb, and the total amount of RAM on the system is 4Gb.
Is it possible to increase graphic memory, I tried in BIOS with no sucess!!!

Thank You in advance.

If there isn't a BIOS setting for it, it can't be done. That's odd, though, that there isn't a BIOS setting for it..I don't think you looked hard enough

Check the control panel for the GMA and see if there's an option in there.

the video memory is actually a dynamically allocated recource...in other words, when you launch a graphics intensive program, the system automatically uses system ram....in addition to the onboard graphics ram....up to the total amount of system ram.....let's say you've got 4GB system ram installed....your video can use whatever ram is available from the shared system ram....in my case, about 1328MB or so is available at any time for video.....considering the memory and front side bus runs at 667MHz, that's not necessarily a bad thing....hope this helps!
