IIRC
if its XP, then you cant, no matter what.
if its Vista, Vista shouldve took some of the ram from you hardware and made it into share, so it will take as many as it should.
unless you are talking about taking some off the graphics.
on board pretty much already take part of your ram.

You should be able to enter the BIOS and allocate more system memory to the integrated graphics chip. The option should be located under the Advanced heading.

Yes, on motherboards with integrated graphics, there is an option in the BIOS for allocating memory to the onboard graphics chip.
