Any way to change the size of Vram??

So, the title describes the issue. I have a shared graphics memory. My ram is 4 gb but my vram is only 64Mb. This causes issues with games,etc. I went through my BIOS a 1000 times without finding anything (Toshiba Sattelite E205 laptop). Is there anyone who can help me here?

Go to your control panel, open System. You will see 'Computer Name, Domain and Workgroup Settings, out to the far right, you see a shield and Change Settings, clik this. In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab at top. Click on the Settings button under Performance. At the bottom you see a Change button for Virtual Memory.

Put bluntly, laptops aren't designed with games in mind, unless you buy and all bells and whistles gaming one for or $$$$.

With a little ebaying and shoping about, a budget AMD gaming system can be built for very little money.

Here's my budget pc recommendation (capable of playing modern games):

ASUS 785g AMD mobo: 70
AMD phenom ll 550be: 50
Ram 4gb (any brand): 25
GPU xfx HD 6850: 115
That's only 260 for the major components, add 50-100 fo case, HDD and DVD drive and your set to go!

Ok this is way off your original question.. But hey free advice is exactly that
