You cannot increase dedicated video memory. Depending on your video system, which you have told us nothing about, it may be possible to increase shared memory. But if you are hoping that this will improve video performance you will be disappointed. The only thing that will do that is a better video card.

Actually the ram is used as video memory without u noticing(only if video card memory is full). Win xp will not tell how much is taken from RAM but win 7 does provide this information.

More video memory won't necessarily make the graphics any better. If the GPU is weak, it wouldn't matter if it used 128MB or 1280MB. How about posting your system specs, especially the make/model of your video card or integrated graphics?

U don't have a video card and don't waste your time with 3d analyzer.

kuwese is correct. You don't have a graphics card. You have onboard video (aka integrated graphics or IGP). If you want to play games & play them well, you'll need to invest in a graphics card. Anything else you try, including 3D Analyzer, is just a waste of time.

This article should help you to choose a decent gaming card within your budget:
