increase shared video memory in pavilion dv6-2155dx

Hi

I have a notebook Pavilion dv6-2155dx, in the product specifications (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&docname=c02029512) says that the shared video memory its up to 1696Mb but on system propierties only show 128Mb. How can increase the share video memory?? in another notebooks that i had use this options is in BIOS but it doesnt appears on this notebook.

 

I had 4Gb RAM, and Video HD intel graphic card.

 

Thanks.

Re: increase shared video memory in pavilion dv6-2155dx

Usually shared memory is allocated by Windows as needed.When you aren't really doing anything it may be low, but as you start doing graphic intensive operations Windows should allot more memory. You could also upgrade your memory from 4 gb to 8gb which should increase  allotted graphics memory.
