Assigning RAM to Graphic Memory

I am using Dell Inspiron 1525 Laptop with Windows 7 Home Premium x86(32 bit) and following configuration :

Processor Intel(R) Core 2 Duo CPU T5850 C 2.16GHz 2.17 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 3.00 GB
Hard Disk : 250 GB

and there's no graphic card..

Is it somehow possible to dedicate my RAM for Graphics and Media acceleration without adding any new hardware ?

Please reply ASAP..

Did you look in the BIOS? When the computer is first booting hit the F2 key. You may find a setting there about how much ram is allocated for the video adapter. By the way, what makes you think this is necessary? What problem are you trying to solve?

Yeah - most BIOS Menus have options to modify the amount of RAM dedicated to graphics. But understand that takes away RAM resources from other tasks, and may result in degraded over all system performance.
