I have a 2007 HP m8100n which has integrated video. I thought I had 256mb of dedicated video memory only to find I have a pathetic 128mb. No wonder some of even my old video games play so poorly.
OK, I know I can get a real video card… that's not the issue.
I've heard that video memory allocation can be changed in BIOS… but that HP prevents this. Color me ticked off about this. And indeed the option to increase video RAM is not available in my BIOS.
So my question is… is there a way to get around HP's arrogant blocking of my ability to change the settings on MY computer to increase video RAM….

HP uses at locked bios. What you see is what your get.
In some of the older PCs with AGP video slots, some bios settings where availablein some PCs to change the AGP aperture size.
You can check here for software and bios upates and see if anything jumps out as a possible fix.
BTW, have you verified in Task Manager that you have the correct level of memory (Total) for your PC?
