How, if possible, to allocate more Video RAM to my Asus Laptop.?

Hi. The title kinda says it all. But here's a little extra information. I have recently downloaded Skyrim to my PC. I have all the requirements to run it, actually I have more that enough to run it, except for one thing. My computer is only using 64 Megabytes of RAM for the Video Card, where Skyrim requires 512 Megabytes. Here.

Hello!, My name is Jake, and i have a degree in computer engineering. You have a problem that i've seen many times before, but you are also in a jam. and, if you want, skip to the end with the bad news, or keep reading if you want to know a little more about your situation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Your computer doesn't have a graphics card, you have Intel HD graphics, this means that you have integrated graphics, which are graphics that just use a portion of your processor to do the graphics in a game. Because of this you don't really have Video RAM (VRAM). Graphics cards are separate processors that are dedicated to pure graphics rendering and at least, they have 512mb of VRAM, or upwards of 3gb of VRAM. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Bad News: Your laptop will not be able to run skyrim very well at all. You could try turning the video settings all the way to the lowest, but you still are probably out of luck. But hey, if this helped (even though it sucked) don't forget to choose best answer! -Jake, who feels really bad for you.

Your problem is that you're trying to game from a laptop. It's possible to upgrade the graphics card, but it's generally difficult, and sometimes just won't work. Just as an afterthought: Meeting the minimum requirements for Skyrim doesn't mean much. It lags on the console versions, and without a pretty high-end gaming PC, in my opinion, it's gonna lag like hell on PC as well. ~Zach

Can I Run Skyrim on my PC?

I really wanted to play Skyrim and the only system I had to play it on is a PC. I ran Canyourunit to see if it would run on my computer. It said that I failed (everything on my computer was fine except the video card). Well, I randomly decided to see if I could run Lord of the Rings online and it also said I couldn't run it. I thought this was wierd because I play lord of the rings online and it plays quite well. So is it possible that maybe canyourunit doesn't recognize my video card. my computer is relatively new (maybe 9 months old). Here is the info on my canyourunit thing. thanks for the help!!

Seems like you can play it on low/medium settings. I've also had problems with that site telling me wrong shit aswell to be honest.
Jon | Jun 05, 2012
ya, if you want to play skyrim well, you will need to update your computer with a new video card. The one you have inside your computer right now is not meant for gaming.

I used to have a no name micro usb charger for my phone, and it was only 500mah, which for non-techies means that it charges very slowly. This charger charges very fast even on the 1A port. It has 2 ports a 1A, and a 2.1A. I recommend the 2.1 A port for ipads and tablets, and to charge your device a little quicker. If you dont need a very quick charge, the 1A port will still charge most phones in an hour and a half from dead to full.UPDATE 3/22: This charger worked well for a little while but quit charging on me today. Lowering my review to 2 stars.UPDATE 4/12- RAVpower quickly contacted me after posting my update and sent me a new one at no cost.

    Best Car Charger in this Price Range

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:09 MinsPlease view my video for further information.There are a lot of car chargers out there, but what makes this one worth buying?1) There are 2 USB ports2) Of the two ports, one is 2.1amps, one is 1amp. That means you can charge BOTH an iPad/tablet AND a phone at the same time3) Mat black finish is applied where cables are unplugged a lot to keep from scratching. (yes this is just a cosmetic feature, but it makes everyone feel better when there electronics don't get scratched!)4) Replaceable fuseThis car charger simply does what it states. It will charge any device through USB while your 12V plug on your car is on. It provides users with the ability to use GPS pas in their car without completely draining there battery when they get to their destinationWhat would make this product better?The only thing I would change is that I would like a switch on the side of each USB port that allowed you to... 5/5 Eric J.

    A compact and sleek car charger that doesn't compromise price. RAVPower does it again!

    USB charged devices have been very popular for the last decade. Everything from MP3 Players and mobile phones to mug warmers and multimeters are all powered by USBs. RAVPower has made the RAVPower Dual Port 15.5W 3.1A USB Car Charger for users that want to charge their devices from their vehicle.When I first opened the packaging, I realized how small the device really is very small (3.9 x 2.6 x 1.4 inches) and light (1.6 ounces). I figured that this device would be very large, like many other USB car chargers that I have bought, but it isn't. The device has the push in part at the end of the charger, with two push in balls and black metal to keep the car charger into the cigarette outlet, with a groove and red LED indicator in between the 2.1A and 1A USB ports.

    Very worthwhile, but a word of caution on install.

    This is a worthwhile upgrade for me. I debated whether to do it or not and what version to get. I finally decided on the Home and Student version. I was pleased to see the price actually drop upon shipping. For me the main deal was OneNote 2010 which allows me to print directly into OneNote. In December I bought a new laptop and it has Win7 Pro 64bit. I was very disappointed to find that OneNote 2007 did not include a driver to print directly into it. While MS did provide a work around this much better.One word of caution when you are installing. My MS Office install is a bit of a collection. I'm using stand alone versions of Outlook and Publisher (both 2007) and Access (2003). I had decided to leave these as is. Upon installing 2010 I was presented with two buttons: "Upgrade" and "Customize". I picked curtain 1 (upgrade). My bad! The install then proceeded to remove Outlook, Publisher and Access. Since the program I was installing did not include these products I think... 5/5 John (United States) - See all my reviews, June 17, 2010

    A whole lot of polishing make it an efficient, worhtwhile upgrade

    I've had an opportunity to use Office 2010 Beta edition for a couple of months now and now that I see the full, final, edition I can say that this is a very worthwhile upgrade. First things first, I am not a techie. I am someone who uses Word, Excel and PowerPoint on a very regular basis, who really liked some of the changes in Office 2007 but who thought some things needed tweaking, so when given the opportunity for the beta edition I jumped on it and have not been disappointed. Office 2010 is to Office 2007 what Windows 7 was to Vista; that is, there are not many breakthrough, drastically different features, but a whole lot of polishing and cleanup to make it easier and more efficient. Overall, the program seems to run faster, incorporates many of the most commonly used options and makes them more accessible (eliminating many dialog boxes and tabs) and allows for more customization.At first glance it looks very much like its predecessor, the ribbon is back and it is now... 5/5 Surgery100 "ADJ" (Washington, DC) - See all my reviews This review is from: Microsoft Office Home & Student 2010 Family Pack, 3PC (Disc Version) (DVD-ROM) I've had an opportunity to use Office 2010 Beta edition for a couple of months now and now that I see the full, final, edition I can say that this is a very worthwhile upgrade.

    Probably Not Worth the Upgrade!

    In my title, I noted that it is "probably" not worth the upgrade. The probably depends upon what you are upgrading from. If you are using Office 2007, stick with 2007. This has a slightly longer load time and not much in the way of usable new features. If you are upgrading from an even earlier version of Office, then this is probably the way to go.The good: The ribbon bar. I like it and it is still there, with a couple of minor improvements such as adding a file option and incorporating your most commonly used actions into one place (kind of like Office 2003 did). The look is slightly updated to be more in line with Windows 7. There are some nice video editing features for PowerPoint that you may find useful. Also, the true claim to fame of this program is that it nearly catches up to Google Docs with online options. Finally, this is a three computer license, which is nice since so many people buy one and put it on all the computers in the house anyway... 2/5 John Keitz - See all my reviews, August 25, 2010

I setup a return with amazon and left 2/5 review in the customer feedback. A few days later I got an email from Sentey who offered to replace my faulty mousepad with any other mousepad in their inventory, regardless of the price. I made my selection and within 2 days I had a brand new mousepad sent to my house. This kind of behavior is uncommon in today's customer care, so I decided to let would be buyers know about Sentey's "above and beyond" style of support. The replacement I asked for was was the same as the one I originally bought, and it is comparable to the 25 dollar mousepad I bought before it. The mousepad is a 5/5, customer service is 5/5 and the only reason I deducted a star for the overall grading is because I did not get this great mousepad the first time around. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , May 12, 2014

    I rarely review products I purchase on Amazon, mainly because I usually feel like the existing reviews do a perfectly good job of capturing my impressions already. But that is not so for this mousepad.I purchased this because I was tired of using my old SteelSeries pad; it had curled up on every edge and was significantly impeding movement of my mouse. I wanted to get a "hard" mousepad, i.e., one that couldn't roll up on the edges. The Kairos PRO is exactly that kind of pad. The top surface is a treated sheet of PVC plastic, aka not fabric. This piece of plastic keeps the mousepad rigid at all times, which is exactly what I want. To be fair, it's not 100% rigid, as you certainly can hold it between your hands and flex it, but the PVC is plenty firm enough to prevent curling of any sort. It is also extremely smooth and allows you to really move your mouse effortlessly.

    Excellent Mouse pad

    I generally use my system for playing first person shooter/ RPG and also for Computer Aided Designing, etc. The mouse I use is a 2400 DPI mouse. I have been using this pad for a couple of days now. I have had a good experience with this mouse pad so far.The pros of this product are:1. The surface quality is pretty good. My 2400DPI mouse moves smoothly on it without any bumps/discontinuities.2. The pad grips my polished wooden table pretty firm and I have not encountered any slippage so far.3. The pad area is pretty big which allows easy maneuverability. This is really important if you are aiming your cross-hair in an open field scenario in FPS.4. The pad is odorless which is really good because my last pad had a burnt rubber smell which was really hard to get rid of.5.

    If you're like most people, you have several computers running throughout your house: a desktop, a laptop, a kid's laptop etc. This 3 license package is a great way to upgrade all of your PCs in your home for one low price.Here's my generic Windows 7 review:I'll admit, I've been running Windows 7 for six months now: the preproduction version of it and have just upgraded to the gold code. So I have quite a bit of experience with the operating system. Let's get to the nitty gritty:Should you upgrade from Windows Vista? YES! I mean it - upgrade today.Windows 7 is quite simply faster, more stable, boots faster, goes to sleep faster, comes back from sleep faster, manages your files better and on top of that it's beautiful to look at and easy to use. Even the preproduction version of Windows 7 was better than my Vista with SP2.Should you upgrade from Windows XP? Maybe, but for different reasons.XP is a good operating system and if... 5/5 AverageReviewer - See all my reviews, October 22, 2009

    Key upgrade info

    I had a difficult time trying to upgrade from Vista. I kept getting "unknown error" or "can't create directory for update files". Eventually I disabled everything running in the system tray - spysweeper, anti virus, and my background backup program. The install also asks you to un-install itunes. After this, I was able to update all three home computers. You would think it would be easy for Microsoft to detect these issues and give a decent error message - or include it in the installation instructions.An update after using Windows 7 for a couple of days:* Very good compatibility with programs, and printers. Everything came up and worked well. Even my Western Digital background backup program.* Taskbar bar icons are bigger - I'd guess that most Microsoft designers are growing old with me and starting to use reading glasses* Occasionally hangs when shutting down - I think that I have narrowed it to Spysweeper hanging out in the background and not closing... 3/5 J.

    Absolutely awesome, both the Ultimate and the Anytime Upgrade

    I finally did my first Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade last week, from Home Premium to Ultimate. I wanted to get Ultimate for two reasons: one, XP Mode (really, just so I could run a few "experimental" programs within the virtual PC, to avoid screwing up my real PC), and two, BitLocker, which encrypts the entire hard drive (or hard drives) with industry-standard strong encryption in a transparent-to-user manner (I keep sensitive financial data on my Toshiba laptop).The upgrade was incredibly painless. I got the upgrade key and just entered it into the upgrade dialog box. Since I had just installed all recent important updates, the upgrade took less than 10 minutes on my one-year-old Toshiba laptop, with a quad-core i7 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive at 5400 RPM. Earlier today I upgraded another Toshiba laptop (this one with dual-core AMD) which I hadn't used in 2 months, so the Anytime Upgrade had to download all the updates, but the whole thing took less than... 5/5 Gadgester "No Time, No Money" (Mother Earth) - See all my reviews, February 9, 2011
