How do I raise the VRAM on my laptop ?

HP Recommended
X360 HP Envy
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have 16GB of RAM memory. I want to raise the VRAM in order to play games on my laptop. How would I be able to do so? I have already tried through the Bios, but there it says the advanced graphic settings may be locked by the manufacturer. Is it possible to raise the VRAM on my laptop with ruining it?

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

Note: Recently people post Youtube on internet saying they can change using Regedit. Many people try but the results are unpredictable.

So, in other words you’re saying that the computer only has so much “RAM” of any kind and the OS knows when and where to put it. Correct. So, you can’t really raise it on a laptop? Or how would you do so if it was possible?
