Can you allocate a specific amount of system memory for video memory>

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello.

 

I was wondering if there was a way ro manually allocate the system memory into vram that the APU can use. With the original DIMMs (4gb+2gb) it would allocate 2 gb of it for vram. i took out the 4 gb dimm and swapped it out for a 8 gb dimm, and now the computer only allocates 1.3 gb for vram. is there a way to change it manually?

Can we know your laptop model number so we can figure out what the video hardware is? Modern computers generally do not permit manual allocation of video memory. The video RAM you see set aside is not all being used...it is theoretically available and would be used if the video is actually needing it. Most integrated video chips like Intel HD are not even capable of using 1.3 gigs of video memory so there would be nothing to be gained even if you could theoretically allocate more. Is there something you used to be able to do that you now cannot?
