One of the members of this site posted an update for the intel driver on the pc side. The icon for the video chip shows i have 128 mb of vram. Is this an error, or has the pc side somehow taken the 64 mb vram cap off?

The cap would have been taken off because the intel video cap is controlled by software, not hardware, therefore the cap is not present in Windows because the Windows drivers do not have this cap.

You would actually would be able to go higher than 128mb by adding more ram as the graphics chip is capable of 256 megs.
