How Do I Allocate More Ram To My Video Card Without Using The Bios

False amount of RAM allocated to graphics card? How can i allocate more RAM to my video card?

The problem is that you have an integrated graphics chip. This chip you have has very little power and is not going to give you good performance at all.

The way this works is that the graphics chip itself does not have any Graphics memory. Usually, a card will feature at least 512MB of dedicated graphics memory. Your card does not have any since it is built right into the motherboard. If you're playing BC2, you will need to buy a separate graphics card to get reasonable performance. If your BIOS won't allow you to allocate more to the card, then that is a limitation of the motherboard - just not possible.

Is there a way to give my laptop more dedicated video ram without having to buy a graphics card?

I have a brand new acer laptop, with a intel core i7, 12GB of ram, and intel HD graphics 520 (up to 6205 mb dynamic video memory) and a intel HD graphics family chip.

Whenever i try to play games (watch dogs, gta, etc...) it lags every 10 or so seconds. Ive found out that you need 1GB of dedicated video ram to play watch dogs, and my laptop has only 128 MB.

Is there a way that i can increase that dedicated video ram without having to buy a graphics card?
Thanks

How can I change my laptop’s dedicated video memory without going to BIOS?

You are confusing System Shared RAM with dedicated Video RAM.The system only reads what is allotted by the motherboard, it can’t magically create more RAM when there isn’t. If your board came with 128MB Video RAM (memory chip), it means there is actually a physical chip embedded on the board accountable for this memory.When you try assigning 1024mb RAM, it would not make a new physical chip appear on your board, it doesn’t exist, hence the OS will try to share System RAM (from your laptop’s 8GB memory) to accommodate the requirement. Its always going to be core of 128MB + [OS/System Set size]. You can “Maximize” the core from the BIOS and that’s about it. Lets say you assign 512MB in the BIOS, when you boot, the BIOS will assign the said memory BEFORE you actually boot into Windows, meaning now the system will lose a small chunk because the BIOS has allotted it as video RAM. (Different BIOS manage it differently but the intent is the same)System RAM is always slower in transferring data because it has to go through the OS and is not directly handled by the GPU. Even if you manage to set 1024 via Registry, the system will not allocate anything more until the 128MB (or the amount you set in BIOS) is completely used. Physically, there is nothing there to get more RAM from at the chip level.In a Dedicated GPU, for example from NVidia, the Video RAM is actually on the GPU board and operates at a much higher frequency than the System RAM. These days there are hybrid solutions where a laptop has a lower-end Intel based graphics with Shared RAM and also a dedicated GPU with its own memory, mostly this combo is found on gaming laptops. Its done to conserve battery because the GPU usually exhausts the batteries even when idling. In your case, your laptop only has Intel graphics.

My Motherboard BIOS and my OS both Show 3GB ram Instead of Installed 4GB?

I have an ASUS P5B-MX/WiFi-AP motherboard and installed 4GB RAM. The motherboard has an onboard Graphics Card. Initially after assembling my desktop when I started my system it showed me available ram of 3576MB at BIOS level and 3.5GB at Windows XP (32 bit) version.
After installing a NVIdia GeForce 8600GT Graphics card now both the BIOS and WINXP show a ram of 3GB. BIOS shows 3076MB as available. Also ealier my BIOS version was 0714 and now it is 0802.
Could someone please tell me why this sudden change? I understand limitation of a 32bit system but then in that case i should have seen avail. RAM of 3 GB only and not 3.5GB.
Thanks in Advance.

How can I increase my dedicated video memory of graphics card?

Dedicated video memory means that its a graphics memory available along with the graphics chip. (you cant change this, as its hardware included)Shared video memory is the memory that the graphics chip can access from the system RAM, thereby reducing available system RAM.Also note that shared memory is not as fast as dedicated graphics memory.If you want you can change your shared memory in bios settings like shown. I would also like to add something more by saying that Total Available Graphics Memory is a combination of all memory available for graphics. The system may not actually be using all of this memory, but it is available when requested.When or if the dedicated runs out, which it rarely does, possibly only on high res and ultra texture settings, then it can use part of your system's shared memory from the 16 GB sticks.

Change shared ram amount for nvidia 8200m g, can't in bios

Amount of shared video RAM is controlled by the driver. You cannot change it and there is no point in doing it either. Memory will be dynamically allocated by the driver as and when required. Having more shared memory will not improve your gaming performance, because 8200M is a very weak, slow integrated card, it simply doesn’t have enough graphic processing power to run new games smoothly, therefore 256MB is enough, anything more will just go to waste.

How do i get more dedicated video ram with the Dell Inspiron one 2300 all in one.?

You cannot. Dedicated video ram is chips soldered to the board. You cannot increase it.
Any BIOS settings are for shared system ram, and that is NOT dedicated video ram. Most games can detect the difference in shared and dedicated ram, the video card reports what is dedicated and what is not.

You have an all-in-one system, which is basically a laptop motherboard installed into the back of a monitor. It is not upgradable any more than a laptop, only ram and HDD can be changed/upgraded...

I want to change my dedicated video memory for my Intel HD Graphics (laptop), but I cannot find the tab in my BIOS, as directed in a website. So is there any way to change it without the BIOS involved?

I want to change my dedicated video memory for my Intel HD Graphics (laptop), but I cannot find the tab in my BIOS, as directed in a website. So is there any way to change it without the BIOS involved?Start again.Find a DIFFERENT website with specific instructions for your mystery make and model laptop, that will lead you to the settings that will allow you to adjust the amount of memory your video shares... assuming that your mystery make and model laptop even allows you to adjust the amount of shared memory.... since very few recent laptops do.See... if you had told us what your mystery make and model laptop is (IE, if you had provided the make and model), we might have been able to tell you where those settings are, if they even exist on your mystery make and model laptop.  Without that information, you are still on your own to find it.I'm saying that relying on ONE site for information, seeing that it is wrong, and not even looking for a second site... that's not a good sign.Is there a way to change it without the BIOS involved?  Nope.  There's no generic Intel tool to install that would allow you to change the BIOS setting from Windows regarding your shared memory.  At least, I've never seen one.  I couldn't tell you if there was one for your specific mystery make and model laptop, because I don't know who made your laptop, or what model it is.That's why I say, start over.  Start again.  Open Google, start searching for instructions on how to increase the shared memory, and this time make sure you are searching for the instructions for your specific make and model laptop.   Look for instructions that have pictures, and if the pictures don't resemble what your BIOS looks like, find another tutorial.  And... you are the only person who can do this.  Do you know why?  We don't know the make and model of your laptop.

How can I increase my Intel HD(R) graphics dedicated video memory in a Windows 8.1 desktop?

you guys. i have the problem and the answer. “dedicated” video cards use their own ram for max performance. so your CPU can use its own ram, while the graphics card can do the same. “integrated” graphics uses the systems memory. therefore it is very limited. but here is what i found out. yes only ASUS lets you switch the amount of memory it uses in the BIOS. but that doesn't mean you cant give your GPU more memory. here is an example. lets just say i have an I5 6th gen processor from Intel. the standard integrated GPU is HD 520. and i have 8 GB of ram. the graphics card can only use so much of that ram. so it limits itself within the files of the system. so right now i have 512 MB of vram on the card. i use to have 128 MB because i changed the amount you can use. so the system automatically gives the graphics card a specified limit. if you have 2 GB of ram, the system would give you maybe 64 MB. 4 GB is 128 MB. and 8 GB is 512 MB. and 16 GB is more likely to be 1–2 GB of vram. i have 8 GB of ram and it gave me 128 MB of vram. but after watching a video i tried to do what the video did. and it didn't work. so i watched another one and it didn't work. so then i thought. well maybe if i do them both and see what results i get. it should work. and it did. now since i only have 8 GB of ram. my computer limited me to 512 MB. but when i first got the computer i had 128 MB. so in the video i created it doesn't change at the end. that is because i tried to bump it up to 1 GB but my computer didn't allow it. but it did work for me. for those of you who may have the hp star wars edition laptop without the nvidia graphics card. you will see that you have 128 MB of memory. so watch this video because this did actually work! also subscribe if it worked for you too!
