Windows 7: How to change dedicated graphic memory?

Are you lagging everywhere? or just at certain points?
have you installed the latest patch for the game?
gta 4 problem!
Rockstar Games - Help

I Also found that setting the draw distance up allows more things to be put into ram and if the draw distance is to low, you will get lag when going out into open areas as all the objects are trying to be drawn at once.

In closed spaces i'm doing fine. But I'll give it a try. GTA 4 EFLC patch starts from what number?

1.0.6.0 is latest patch, but downloading the patch is cumulative, so it includes all patch updates. I was suffering from lag with a nice machine as well and installing patch resolved this issue. I also still lagged a little in open areas, and by playing with the draw distance (about medium) and increasing ram usage for draw distance (most of the Ram used) I was able to get lag free play.

My system is a gaming machine, but I dont see why yours wouldn't handle it. I have C2Duo and nVidia graphics, but its not the uber-computer (yet).....

Oh sorry I posted it, but I guess they moved it. The link no longer takes you to patch.
It is on their site. I cant look right now, but if you cant find, I will look when I can and post it.

Just jumping back in here,

Kutiq4life - I think you may already have the latest patch.

When did you start the game up for the first time, if it was in the last 3 months then you will have the latest patch as GTA EFLC will not let you play online without it or let you save your game.

You don't lower your video card memory .
That is what you are stuck with when you buy a laptop, unless that laptop has a video card you can swap out, doubtful, but possible.

I'd suggest investing in a tweaking suite like BoostSpeed or TuneUp Utilities to help get your laptop running the best it can, you probably have lots of services running in the background for one thing that are wasting CPU resources. WinPatrol is another good tool you might try, and it's free to use.
See softpedia.com or tucows.com or other reputable download site.

2 gigs of RAM is also the bare minimum for Windows 7 to run IMO, I have a 1 gig old PC and it was ridiculous with Windows 7, so I know first hand, upgraded it to 2 gigs and it's serviceable as emergency 3rd PC.

Laptops are typically not good gamer machines, unless you spend a lot 'O money and even then they can't hold a candle to desktops, just nature of the beasts, and one reason consoles are so popular.

Your laptop is still good on casual games, just not hardcore 3-D gaming.

Your ignorance bit you this time, investigate deeper, next go around, and you will be much happier.

Just because you just bought a computer doesn't mean anything, they vary greatly and it's very unfair to
the ignorant, but you have to ask the right questions to make much headway which is problem itself when you have no idea what you should want.

This is more like it for a gaming laptop: Newegg.com - TOSHIBA Qosmio X505-Q880 NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM(1.60GHz) 18.4" 6GB Memory DDR3 1066 500GB HDD + 64GB SSD HDD BD Combo NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M
