Can I allocate more memory than 32MB to a notebook video card?

I'm running a Pavilion ze4145 and am having some problems running simple games such as Galactic battlegrounds and AoE Conquerors.

I could have sworn that when I looked at the display model of this notebook, it had 64MB of 512 going to the video card.

I'm not sure where this can be done or if it would be unwise to do, if I can.

Many thanks
I have all the latets bios, vid, and win updates too.

Thanks Nick. It was in the bios.

It didnt help but that's what I was looking for.

I still cant understand why this 1.5 GHz amd cpu with 512 MB of ram cant run a simple game like AoE conqerors.

Ah well, guess I'll drink some beer.

Ah, my friend, you could have a 3 Ghz computer with 2GB ram but with the integerated ram you are limited.

How fast does the 500 MPH car go in the 40 MPH speed zone? :)

The VID Card or if it's integrated is more than likely the bottleneck.
