Specs: Windows 7, 16GB

I didn't expect it to work, but I just watched a youtube video on how to increase vram. I downloaded a program, restarted my computer, and jumped from 128mb to 1536mb. I didn't think this was possible without going into the BIOS, which my laptop dosen't even let me do.

Is this safe?

Here's what I downloaded:

Most of the time when you have to ask that question the answer would be no. Also pretty sure that if it was bad that no one should be clicking that link. ( Just in case.)

I personally would be worried about malware vs, memory

"it only had 128mb of vram"

It's not VRAM, it's eDRAM. All you did was change the way the shared system RAM is used. I highly doubt there will be any difference in performance because the system RAM is shared dynamically anyway.
