Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and I understand your concerns

 

HP Pc’s uses a customized BIOS setting (Tattooed BIOS) of which some features including overclocking, Virtualization and increasing the VRAM are locked.


This is done in the best interest of safeguarding the PC for the optimal performance and not to cause any extensive component failure.


To conclude, the VRAM on your PC is already shared with a specific value and its locked and cannot be changed.


Hope the information shared will help you.

 

Thank you

Thanks for answering! Before i pick this as solution i have a question to ask.

 

You said "HP Pc’s uses a customized BIOS setting (Tattooed BIOS) of which some features including overclocking, Virtualization and increasing the VRAM are locked." is there a way to unlock it? or its locked permanently?

 

This is done in the best interest of safeguarding the PC for the optimal performance" i get it but i want the maximum performance out of my pc!

Unfortunately for Consumer PC or Notebooks, the BIOS is locked permanently and customers cannot make certain changes

 

In certain HP Commercial PC ( Business PC ), the BIOS usually is unlock and  that is when customers can make changes in BIOS
