My PC comes with a RX 5500 that supports recording in the AMD Adrenaline Software. Well if the AMD Software detects a GPU with less than 2GB of VRAM it will disable this feature. The software is detecting the integrated graphics of my CPU the 5600G which is allocated 512MB of VRAM by default which is causing this recording feature to disable. The only way around this I know of is to disable the IGPU or increase the ram allocated to the IGPU to 2GB. In some HP BIOS there is an Advanced tab that let's you adjust the IGPU but in my PC with the 8906 motherboard there is no advanced options. I've seen others mention that there may be a hidden shortcut to access the advanced options because checking through the BIOS firmware code there are references to these options and through BIOS Mods it's possible to change them but I don't want to deal with modding my BIOS.
I would like to know how I can contact HP BIOS team to get this information or release a BIOS update to access these features that are locked behind software not hardware. I would like to just switch to a CPU without a IGPU but my motherboard doesn't officially support any other CPUs.
Through more testing I have found a workaround to gain access to the recording feature. Right click the start button, click "Device Manager" and under "Display Adapter", right click and disable "AMD Radeon(TM) Graphics". After doing this the record feature showed up in the AMD Adrenaline software. Don't do this if you don't have a graphics card though or you will not have anything showing up on your monitor anymore when in Windows. This does not however stop the motherboard from allocating 512MB of the RAM to the IGPU so we still need a option to adjust this in the BIOS. Not sure why HP wants us to waste our RAM capacity for something not being used.
