    how to increase video memory?


    I am using ACER travelmate 5720 with intel T7500 processor.
    as default only 8 MB is allocated to video memory.
    how to increase this?

    You will see an option to increase this in your BIOS. Change it there to a higher value. On my computer, I can't set it to more than 16MB

    For some Intel video chips, this is done automatically with agpgart. To see if your system is doing this, use this command.
    Code:
    dmesg | grep agpgart
    Now, my laptop is somewhat old, but this is what I get.
    Code:
    $ dmesg | grep agpgart
    Linux agpgart interface v0.103
    agpgart: Detected an Intel 855GM Chipset.
    agpgart: Detected 892K stolen memory.
    agpgart: AGP aperture is 128M @ 0xe8000000
