Decrease Allocated V-Ram

HP Recommended
S01-aF0011
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, I recently bought a HP Slim Desktop S01-af001 for my mother. It shipped with a 4gb dimm, and I noted it had 512mb allocated to the graphics chip which is perfectly fine. 4gb is a bit slim to use with Windows 10 so I upgraded it to an 8gb dimm. However when I booted it up, the bios had allocated a whopping 2gb to the graphics chip, which is way too much. The system is mainly for web browsing and email with only a 1280x1024 resolution, no video or gaming. so I would like to have as much memory as possible for the OS to use. I could not find any setting in the bios to change the allocated amount. Any help?

Hello
if there is no bios, you will not be able to modify it simply
It must correspond to this

Attention
A bios update is not without risk!
Be aware that if you are offered to do so, it will be at your own risk, the computer may become unusable, think about it
