Hi Everybody. I have a bit of a problem. I can't seem to find any way to dedicate more RAM to my Intel HD graphics card. I don't if it's my laptop or i'm just stupid but i can't seem to find a way. From tutorials and instructions I seem to be doing the right thing. Here are my Specs:


Manufacturer: Hewlett-Packard


Model: Presario CQ45

              Notebook PC


Processor Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU B820 @ 1.70GHz  1.70 GHz


Installed memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (5.90 GB usable)


System type: 64-bit operating System


Graphics Card: Intel HD Graphics


I hope i got that right. If someone could help i would really appreciate it.

When requesting assistance, please provide the complete model name and product number (p/n) of the HP computer in question. HP/Compaq makes thousands of models of computers. Without this information it may be difficult or impossible to assist you in resolving your issue.


The above requested information can be found on the bottom of your computer, inside the battery compartment or on the startup BIOS screen. Please see How Do I Find My Model Number or Product Number? for more assistance locating this information. DO NOT include your serial number. Please enter the model/product information into HP's Online Consumer Support page and post it here for our review.

Typically, Windows controls the amount of system memory that is dedicated to the video adapter. This means it is unlikely that you will be able to change any settings in the BIOS that will change this.


If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
