Solved Any way of increasing laptop Dedicated Graphics Memory?

Specs: Windows 8
If anyone knows how to change Shared System Memory (as part of the Graphics Memory) and increase the Dedicated Video Memory???
I have a Toshiba Satellite A300 Laptop, with an Intel 4 Series Chipset Graphics driver. And it would be a good gaming laptop if 1631MB of the total 1759MB wasn't for the Shared System Memory.
If you can help it'll be greatly Appreciated

If your laptop has Intel graphics, it's probably not much good for gaming. And increasing the amount of graphics memory isn't going to make much of a difference if the graphics chip is weak. A300 is the series, which A300 do you have? Please post the complete model number, for example, A300-149, then we can make a better determination of its performance potential.

✔ Best Answer
OK, here's your laptop specs:

It has Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics. There is NO dedicated graphics memory, the memory is 100% shared. There may be a setting in the BIOS for the amount of initially shared memory (32MB, 64MB, 128MB, etc) but the rest is dynamically shared on an as-needed basis. From the following review: "the performance is just on par with the entry level dedicated graphics cards and therefore not suited for demanding games".

There's nothing you can do to improve it's performance. Stick to older games at low settings.
