Hi,

I have an Equium P200D-139 laptop and wondered if there is any way to increase the memory of the GPU?

This notebook model is not known to me but if there is shared memory graphic card you can expand it if you upgrade RAM.
Check the notebook specification and see what max RAM amount for this notebook model is. I presume it must be 4 GB.

By the way: check http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=43021

Have you updated the BIOS? Sometimes later BIOS revisions can overcome issues like this.

Hey buddy… you will not be able to increase the memory automatically!
The graphic card driver controls this and will increase the graphic memory ONLY if it’s needed by application like game or graphic program.
There is NO option which would allows you to change some graphic memory values!!!
