    Increase Graphics memory


    Hi guys..
    My laptop have an Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics processor. I have 2GB ram and i am planning to upgrade it to 8GB as my laptop supports upto 8GB( 4GB*2).
    Now I have only 64MB dedicated graphics memory and around 700 MB shared memory. I wish to know if I can increase my graphics shared or dedicated memory after increasing my RAM . My BIOS does not allow to do it . Is there any other method or any third party software??
    Is there any way in windows 10 to do this??

    I don't believe you can do this. Such options are rarely available in laptops.

    You wont need to windows will automatically compensate for the extra ram and allocate it as needed. The old bios option to increase dedicated integrated gpu ram is no longer used.

    That means I only have to add more RAM and Windows will do the rest. Isn't it ???

    erm...........im not sure sorry

    Its normally high texture settings and the like that use up alot of gpu ram , also newer games are starting to use it as a cache but i dont think that would be the case if you dont have dedicated gpu ram
