HP Vram (Video Ram)

HP Recommended
HP 15-F222WM
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello, 

I have been trying to increase my Laptop's video memory. It seems to be only using 64Mbs of vram with 1.75 Gb of video ram available. I've been having problems with only 64 MBs of vram.I have read may blog posts from various sites and also watched Youtube videos but none seem to work. I tried checking my bios as some people mentioned "advanced bios" and could not find how to unlock it. I have updated my bios to the newest update F.45 offered from HP drivers but it did not change the bios. Any suggestions?

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 can't find a similar list from AMD).
