Windows 7: How can I find out and set dedicated graphics memory?

How to change the amount of shared graphics memory.

If at all you can find that setting in the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) or nowadays in the UEFI or EFI ([Unified] Extensible Firmware Interface).
Most often you can enter the BIOS through holding the del(delete) button or one of the keys F1-F12 on your keyboard at startup.
Startup means after a reset or after you turnned it off.
Might work after hibernation too but is not guaranteed.

Your system will allocate the video memory that it needs. Say, you're going to play games and your system will get some memory from your RAM and send it to the GPU and it'll be the Shared Video Memory
