I bought my father a small computer (HP M01-F1046ng) so he can surfe trough the web and play some old games.
I installed Windows 10 on the system. Currently I have two questions:
1. According to the product details the RAM should run with 3200 MHz, but it shows up with 2166 Mhz only. Normally I would just change this inside the BIOS, but HP has locked this option. What can I do to solve this issue?
2. The GPU is only showing 512MB dedicated GPU-Memory. If I understand this correctly the Memory should increase automatically if I need more, right?
I've not seen this increasing in Games like Anno, Age of Empire, etc., so sometimes it "lags" even the game is very old.
I can't answer your Q1, very strange. It runs AMD Ryzen 3 family namely AMD Ryzen™ 3 4300G (3.8 GHz base clock, up to 4.0 GHz max boost clock, 4 MB L3 cache, 4 cores) and from the following information options to overclock is limited
For Q2. Integrated video (iGPU) does not have room for keep VRAM, it relies on System. System will work this out and allocate/assign spare/available system RAM to VRAM automatically when required up to max limit. System will also take VRAM back when required (the number is dynamic, not fix). During the good old days, we could do this from BIOS but now OS is smarter.
The following document shows Max shared RAM for Intel iGPU versions (i do not have a table for AMD processors):
