Your laptop can support at most 256MB of video ram.

In the bios setup of many computers you can adjust the amount of ram that is assigned to the video adapter. From your settings it appears that the maximum (256MB) is already assigned.

Check the specifications for these games. they may require more than 256MB.

This is why a laptop is not the best machine to use to play games with.

Not a Game Machine

by TheChas In reply to problem with lenovo lapto ...

This is not a good choice for gaming.

Anytime you have integrated graphics, you have problems with all but the simplest games.

It does not help any that you are running Vista.

Your only real option is to install the maximum amount of memory the system can take.

As far as dedicating memory to video, you can enter BIOS setup and see what options are there.

All in all though, if you desire to play games you need a system with a dedicated graphics adapter.
