I know it is not possible to upgrade the graphics card in a laptop, although is there any way I can upgrade the Video RAM? I only have 1Gb of VRAM and my notebook can game just fine, the only issue is when the games run out of VRAM. If there isn't a way to upgrade the VRAM are there any other solutions I can try to prevent VRAM loss?

Okay, most of the games improved by lowering resolution. However, Planet Coaster and Rollercoaster Tycoon World still have issues, although this is most likely because of the VRAM right? The minimum specs for VRAM are 2Gb for both, recommended is 4Gb.

Okay, I feel so ignorant right now. I just found out I have 2048mb of dedicated video memory while looking through the NVIDIA Control Panel. It's very good to know I have 2GB of VRAM. However, I know that 2GBs is not much compared to how much is there is able to be.
