Yes...go to the laptop manufacturers support site and install the graphics for your model laptop.

Try to see if there is an option in the BIOS on your laptop to set the amount of reserve space for VRAM.

On another note, if this change did not decrease the performance or your user experience then I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
