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.

PS: Is it just because my Graphics Card is absolute shit? Or not. Should I buy a new one?


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.

    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

    Best if you Plan Ahead

    Windows 7 Home Premium is the best version to choose for older machines and/or simpler networks. The "Backup" offered in 7 Pro can be done easily with free tools, and unless you need complex networking, 7 has what it takes to manage a home network. Last, the 'XP Mode' promised in 7 Pro and above will only work on hardware new enough to support "Virtualization Technology" (stop by Microsoft's website to learn more). This isn't the same as "XP Compatibility Mode", which you will still have for all versions of Windows 7 (there's a great video explanation of this on CNET's website in their Windows 7 Center at CNET TV).Some very important things you need to know about upgrading:1) There are two types of upgrade: "in-place" (where a Vista machine upgrades to 7 and you get to keep all your programs) and "clean" (where you lose all your old programs and settings).2) Anyone going from XP to 7 will have to go "clean".3) Anyone going from a different Vista... 4/5 Winter (USA) - See all my reviews, November 1, 2009

    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!

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 you don't need to add new hardware or software, XP is good. However, XP is old as an operating system.

    Good Sound Quality, Several Modes (incl. FM Radio!), and at a Budget Price!

    I remember a time before Bluetooth speakers became inexpensive and had good battery life. Other than Bluetooth headsets for cell phone use, speakers that were designed to sync with mp3 players generally had abysmal battery life, not to mention sketchy sound quality. Over time technology improved and now there is a veritable plethora of Bluetooth speakers out there, including this one, the Sentey B-Trek S2; it is a compact speaker that also has a built-in microphone to allow it to function as a speakerphone.And, it's cute.ConstructionThe adorable Sentey B-Trek S2 Bluetooth Speaker (aka the SBTS2) is a palm-sized unit that comes with several features that you wouldn't expect for a product of its size and price range.
