Why isn't the Dedicated Video Ram option available in my BIOS

For some reasons, when I when to my BIOS, i found my Video Ram option of 128MB, but i was not able to edit that option since i have 4 GB of RAM. I would like to seek help in solving this problem as I really want to edit my Video Ram to gain better performance in games. I really hope to seek replies in solving this problem. Thank you!

You don't give details on which Acer Laptop model you have but the BIOS is probably locked by the OEM due to configuration limits. The OEM settings will most likely provide the best performance available for a given model. If there's an available slot, you may be able to add a video adaptor to increase video performance. That will depend on what model you have.

If you can click on it and you see different amounts to change it to, it will let you. If you click on it and nothing happens, then you can`t. Simple as that.

Not all video ram can be changed in the bios.

Contact the manufacturer for further support.

4GB RAM isn't enough to share between the system and GPU for gaming. Unless you're playing Solitaire, then you'll be good.
