Specs: Windows 7
Hi. I have recently bought a new Acer laptop and I
am wondering how I increase the graphic
memory. It says I have a maximum of 1308 and a
minimum of 64 how do I increase the minimum.

More than likely your graphics only has 64MB dedicated memory...the rest is 'borrowed' from the system RAM. Hopefully you didn't buy it for gaming. Posting the model number would be helpful.

You do it from within the BIOS.

Bear in mind that as this is a laptop it probably has integrated graphics in which case by increasing the graphics memory you will be "stealing" memory from the main memory available to programmes and data.

! wouldn't increase it beyond 128 Mbs unless you have a specific reason to do so. 1308 seems a strange number. 1024 would make more sense,

No I didn't buy it for gaming but I would like to use some games
on it. The only real problem is that Halo 2 Vista need 128 MB.

The model is Acer Aspire 5738Z.
Also in my bios it does show the graphics memory but it doesn't allow me to change it, do I need to update the bios?

Your system uses the Intel GMA 4500MHD integrated graphics which according to the following review, has no dedicated memory. All of it's memory is "stolen" from the system dynamically.

So judging from what that site says this graphics card will be
incapable of performing any better then it currently does which I
was expecting atleast.

Thanks for the help.

Oddly that site says that my system is capable of running Halo 2 Vista and it even says it has 128BM.
