I have a lenova g70-80 laptop and I know its not that great, but I should be able to increase the dedicated video RAM. My RAM is 4 gigs yet my dedicated video RAM is 128 megabytes. This is quite annoying because I cannot run most games on it. I use the laptop almost exclusively for games so increase the dedicated video RAM at the expense of something else might be ok with me. please send how you think i can help, or is my computer just a potato. thank you for reading a please help

Hi RabbitKit232 ,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Would you have the machine number?
Your query may be similar to this discussion .
"The amount of video memory your computer has is dependent on the amount of pre-allocated memory set for your system plus the Dynamic Video Memory Technology (DVMT). DVMT dynamically allocates system memory for use as video memory creating the most efficient use of available resources for maximum 2D/3D graphics performance."
If you do not have the options on BIOS , OEM presets on designated RAM are already configured by manufacturer as optimal for the system model.
Adding physical RAM would not increase would not increase dedicated video memory.
More about this here on the Intel graphics FAQ :
" Adding more physical memory may or may not increase your graphics memory. For example, adding more memory would not make a difference if your computer is configured to use a fixed allocation method for the graphics memory. "
Updating the Intel Graphics drivers may allow settings customized as others may increase performance gains by increasing virtual memory instead and or playing the games in lower resolution.
Hope this help answer your query.
