Windows 7: Hello guys. I would like to know how to change shared video memory.

Hello guys. I would like to know how to change shared video memory.

Well guys, first post *woo*.

I have looked all over the internet for an answer to this problem, but I cannot find one. You see, in my setup menu (or rather the BIOS? I don't really know. The thing that you press F2 for after seeing "acer" or "DELL") there is no video options tab. Just, if I remember correctly, "information, Security, Boot, Exit", and one other thing that shows the time, date, and total RAM. I cannot however highlight total RAM or video RAM (I have about 120 MB of VRAM, 4GB of total). So how do I change shared video memory if there is no video tab? I'm looking to boost performance (even if it's only by a little bit) in games. I'm willing to share more PC info, just ask

You can't. The BIOS is the only place that would allow you to, and apparently your system manufacturer chose to hide some advanced BIOS features so they can't be changed. Sadly this is typical, unless you build your own computer.

In any case, your onboard video probably used shared system memory beyond the 128MB allocated to it anyway, if it needs to. I wouldn't actually expect any performance increase from upping the dedicated video memory even if you could.

Oh, sorry, my manners... Welcome to SevenForums.
