    Your laptop uses the intel integrated graphics processor
    I'm afraid like the majority of laptops there is no upgrade possible for the graphics card processor or the memory (as it simply uses some of the system memory/RAM).

    So its own video ram could not be change into a higher one.

    No. It is hardwired in the laptop so to speak. You are unable to change or modify it. Sorry for the bad news ;)
    Although there have been devices released in the past which allow the use of a desktop graphics card via an external interface. But not sure how cost effective they are.

    Asus External Graphics "XG Station"

    Never read any reviews on these peripherals but probably not worth the expense.

    Added one such device into my previous post. Don't know much about them other than they exist.
