More Ram for graphics

\015 I have 4gb of ram and shared graphics. in the bios screen it wil only let me select 128mb for graphics but it says on the laptop spec that you can have up to 1224mb how do i put more into graphics because the 128mb is not very good when playing world of warcraft. thanks \015\012\015\012robert slater\015

Answers :

You can share the RAM for VGA max of 256 only for some motherboards. On BIOS select the AUTO instead of selecting 128MB share memory.

Well apparently your motherboard allows sharing of up to 128 MB (from 32MB upwards i guess), any way for playing a game, the the amount of "graphic card RAM" is not very important compared to the "graphic processor unit" (GPU) speed, so you probably need a faster graphic card (or atleast a faster processor) for your game to be faster and smoother...
