Uh yes and no.

It uses integrated graphics, and will use a portion of your RAM as the VRAM.

Add more RAM to your system and you can let it use more VRAM.

But that isn't going to help you at all, we are talking zero gain in performance.

Sorry for the lack of info.

I have a 4gb ram installed which should give me 512mb of Dedicated video RAM.

Right now it's only running 128mb.

I belive you that the performance won't increase so much but it's mainly to let me play games that needs a minimum of 512mb of Dedicated VRAM.

So is it possible or not?

Thanks in advance

Windows actually control the amount of RAM that is used for internal graphics. The setting in Bios (if available), just guarantees that the minimum amount is used for graphics. So, for instance, if the OS determines that 1Gb is needed for graphics, that's what is allocated. In practical terms, I've never seen an difference if the minimum was set to 128, 256 or 512Mb. If you're running a game, just be sure to close down all other programs.
