I'm sorry, but you can't do what you are asking. What you are asking can only be done when the videocard has 16MB of memory by itself or when it is an integrated videochip on the motherboard, with the option in the BIOS to increase the memory usage which is then taken from the main memory.

But in all other cases you need a new videocard with its own dedicated videoRAM onboard.
