Default Increase graphics memory

Hey everyone. i have a toshiba satellite a305 that has integrated graphics like most all other laptops, but i was browsing around in the graphics settings and i found out that the max graphics memory is 358MB but its only using 132MB and i was wondering if theirs a way for me to make it run at its max memory. i have tried going through the bios and theirs nothing in their to tweak it.

Question/thought = when it says max memory, does that mean that it by its self will use the max memory when needed or can i manually adjust memory settings.

DirectX* Version: 10.0
Physical Memory: 4085 MB
Minimum Graphics Memory: 8 MB
Maximum Graphics Memory: 358 MB
Graphics Memory in Use: 132 MB

thanks in advance for all the help and knowledge.

Default Re: Increase graphics memory

It means that when needed, it will use the max amount of memory available. There is no need to change any settings.
