Welcome to SF!

If the graphics is onboard the motherboard it would likely use more RAM if you add more, but your actual VRAM would remain the same. Onboard graphic generally use a fair chunk of the RAM installed.

I'm not talking about the acutal VRAM, I mean if I increase the ram to 4gb l the shared graphics memory increase from the 128mb?

Check your BIOS for any option that might let you allocate more vram. it's the only place that will have that ability.
