What happens to my laptop if i increase the video memory in my BIOS ( because i am able to due so on my 7730 acer aspire ) its currently on 32MB and it can go up to 64MB and 128MB, so what will happen, will it make my laptop faster or slower if i increase it from 32MB ?

Your video memory most likely is shared from your ram memory.
What that means is if you have 1 gig of memory on your system then 32 megs is shared with the video card leaving you 968 megs of ram memory.
If you increase the video memory then the other decreases.
This in turn does not speed up your system but actually the opposite since there is not enough memory to run everything then.
