My friend has an acer laptop with intel integrated graphics that can bet set to up to 128mb, but it is currently set to only 10mb & I can't find how to increase it to 64mb.

The laptop is a travelmate 2403wxci

The option maybe in the BIOS.

The only options relating to it in the BIOS are setting max memory to 64mb or 128mb.

She wants to play the desperate housewives game, which says only needs a geforce 3 or better, but won't work on her integrated graphics. I'm assuming that if I can figure out how to set it to more than 10mb, the game will work.

So, have u tried setting it to 128?

How much memory is onboard?

I've tried setting it to 128, tried setting it to 64. it still only uses 10mb.

It doesn't have any dedicated memory - it steals from the 512mb system memory.

Unless there's a setting in the properties when u right mouse on the desktop.

Other than that, u may not be able to do it.

find out the name of the bios and go to the bios's website. check it there is any bios updates. also email the bios company and tell them the exact problem as u described here. also email the intergrated graphics card company too.
