If it has an Intel GPU only, then video RAM is from system RAM.  If it 
has an additional Nvidia or ATI/AMD GPU... it still probably uses the 
main RAM.

If it has an additional GPU that is truly discrete, that could have its 
own RAM.

So "does it have a second GPU?" is the first question.  Posting the 
exact model number might help answer that.
