Windows 7: More memory to graphic card

More memory to graphic card

Hello, I got a Intel GMA 4500M in my laptop, and I was wondering how I can let more memory into the card, because I have upgraded the RAM to 4gb 1066 DDR3 so I have more to share. Where can I find that option? And if you have any tips on how to speed up the card performance please let me know!

p.s. Im trying to run GTA SA smoothly but it lags :s
CanURunIt says I need a better gpu but these information confuse me! I have it all!

Video RAM 128 MB 1.7 GB 3D Yes Yes Hardware T&L Yes Yes Pixel Shader version 2.0 4.0 Vertex Shader version 2.0 4.0

it shows that available video ram is 1.7 GB. and you simply don't need more for such a weak gpu.

There must be some tricks to speed it up a little bit?

possibly. but i'm not aware of such tricks.

though, you can look into Intel graphics control panel and maybe there are some gfx quality settings that you can turn down/off.

There isn't.

That GPU is too old to run newer graphics intensive games.

Lordbob75, his GPU must not be all that old if he claims to have DDR3 RAM.

Also, being that your system seems like a newer one, you may be able to upgrade your graphics card. The one you have is an integrated chip which uses your RAM. Such chips are not good for games, even the newer ones. You'd be better off with a dedicated card.

I am going to assume that the system in his sig is NOT this laptop.
