Hiya

 

It seems tha your machine doesn't have a dedicated graphics chip, it actually pulls RAM from the main system RAM and creates "VRAM". The more RAM you have installed, the more VRAM will be provided to your graphcs chip.

 

Your video chip is being given about 512mb of your 4GB system RAM for graphics. You may be able to decrease this value in the BIOS, but I'm not sure off the top of my head which options you'd need to select in the BIOS to achieve this.
