If your Video/Graphics is onboard you should be able to go into BIOS and alter the amount of memory allocated to the graphics from there. Look for 'Onboard Graphics'

if your motherboard has a agp slot you can add a graphics card, this will give you a lot better performance in games.

Hi, I would recommend at least something like a Radeon R9200 which has 128MbDDR. It is the cheapest, I think, in the Radeon range, but will give you very noticable improvements.
