Pavilion 500-321: Option to increase dedicated RAM graphic chip (Intel 4600)

Is there a way to increase the RAM dedicated to the graphics chip (Intel 4600)? I would benefit from it? I tried to look in the BIOS, but it is not an option for that.

My PC has 12 GB of RAM - 10 (64-bit) Windows

Thank you.


@Adrianrff, welcome to the forum.

No, there is no way to increase the amount of video memory.  The only way to do it is by adding a discrete video card.  In addition, it would require a power supply unit (PSU) upgrade.  The existing PSU is only 300W.

  • HP Pavilion 500-321: graphics driver constantly crashing and recovery


    I've been instances make more frequent accidents of graphics driver. The message I get is:

    "Display driver stopped responding and recovered."

    Display driver Intel HD Graphics Drivers for Windows 8 (R) stopped responding and has successfully recovered. »

    When this happens, the screen goes black for a split second and then everything goes back to normal.

    It happens every time I play games, demanding or not (could be just, for example), or simply to Watch youtube videos. When you play a little demanding games, even with low settings I know my chipset is capable of processing, it happens rather frequently.

    I have a HP Pavilion 500-321 with an i5 CPU 4750 and 4600 Graphics Intel Intel chipset on Windows (64-bit) 10. The driver installed is Windows and the site of software & drivers of HP, the last (

    Any ideas on the way that it can be and how to solve?

    PS: I've done several resets factory and same charges 10 Windows installs, so is not a solution for me.

    Thanks in advance.


    I think that I managed to solve the problem by forcing the installation of the original drivers for my Intel graphics chip. I downloaded from the Intel Web site.  HP would not let me do this through the Windows Wizard or through installation of Intel software, so I did it manually after some research.

    I have not seen the error message in more than a week now, not even when playing a bit demanding games, so I think it's safe to say that the problem has disappeared and that the problem is HP drivers in Windows 10.

    I hope that you are able to pass it along so that HP can work towards a solution, if they are not already on this subject.

    Thanks for your help and attention, Sunshyn.

  • Increase dedicated memory graphic Skylake HD

    Hey :). I come from a Lenovo machine (which I returned due to building defects).

    In the Lenovo BIOS, could increase dedicated graphics memory. XPS 13 remains to 128, with more available as "shared." Does this affect performance? How can you increase the memory dedicated XPS 13? For Lenovo, it was possible, and it was also Skylake.

    There is no way - the 128 M is the Z-buffer - not the dedicated video memory (in fact NO video memory dedicated - is all the system RAM).  The driver will allocate as much RAM system needed up to the maximum allowed by the total RAM in the system - there is no way to send it manually.

  • Pavilion 500-321: dark blue background and placement weird icon on jump list (MRU) of applications in the taskbar

    Hi, I recently did a reset of the W8.1 and now I see a weird and very annoying blue backgound dark in the recent files list that appears when you right-click an application pinned to the taskbar. Also, the "PIN to the taskbar" and "close window" icons show little irrelevant and apparently higher than normal

    I tried looking through all of the possible settings, but I can't find anything on this particular list. Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    I found out what was causing the problem in this forum. Apparently Windows KB3072318 update caused the jump list to behave strangely. I uninstalled this patch and apparently he himself reinstalled after rebooting, but it's okay now.

  • Pavilion 17-g127ds: upgrade of processor and the graphics card Intel

    Hello. I was wondering if I could update the processor and graphics card in the HP Pavilion g127ds 17. It has an Intel Pentium N3700 (1.6 GHz) processor. I really want to know if I could pass this processor to something better. Also, if I can improve the Intel HD Graphics, it would be good as well.


    Unfortunately NO, you can not upgarde to better CPU or GPU because N3700 Pentium processor and Intel HD graphics card equipped motherboard. If you want to update, you must purchase a new motherborad which is = to buy the new machine.

  • Dedicated vs graphics integrated Intel graphics card?

    I intend to buy a new laptop - main use is MS Office, watch movies / live webstreams and navigation. However, I use it for video editing occasionally using a software called 'Pinnacle Studio MovieBox'. This software has a reqmnt to ' direct x 9 or 10 compatible card graphics with 128 MB.

    Currently, I have HP G42-478TX, which works very well.

    I am looking to buy a new laptop, if I go for an i3/i5 intel core (windows 8/10) laptop with integrated (NOT) graphics card, it will be enough to run the above software? Or I need a dedicated type NVIDIA graphic card?

    You have the ATI Mobility HD 6370 with 512 MB dedicated. Run Intel HD 4600 or 5000 embedded video will give similar performance.

    I don't think they make Studio MovieBox anymore and you can be sure that it is running on Windows 8.1 or 10 which is what is going to have a new laptop, as you said, you understand. Assuming he'll you will have no problem with a laptop with integrated Intel video. The program and the video capture device are released about 10 years ago. You can have the chance more to run the program in compatibility mode, and you also may need to install the older DirectX support. Pinnacle was purchased by Corel and then I kind of lost track of them. Their support is pretty sketchy these days. I use one of their devices to Dazzle with an old cell phone to capture video from VHS and turn it into DVD and I got to run on Windows 10 using the old Windows Vista software accompanying then chances are your device can be implemented, too.

  • HP Pavilion 500-319NA: new to < see below > graphics card


    I am new to the computer upgrades and know almost nothing about it, so please keep any simpler answer and understanding as possible.

    My computer is the "HP Pavilion 500-319na".

    It contains the graphics card "NVIDIA GeForce 705" (I think it's a 1 GB model)

    There's a game coming out next year called Overwatch, this graphics card is unable to play the game, so I decided that I want to upgrade this Christmas.

    The graphics card, I have drawn attention is the "ASUS 2 GB GeForce GTX 750 Ti.

    I have mainly two questions:

    • Is my computer compatible with this graphics card?
    • the Geforce 705 dosent require any kind of power, but one that I want (the GTX 750 it) seems to require a power adapter 6 pin or something.

    If anyone could help with any of these things it would be wonderful.

    Thank you, Callie

    You'll be glad you asked, you need to clarify some issues.

    This is your computer.  There really a 180W external PSU?  Or is the power supply inside the box?  There were some variations in generation of HP model #.   If internal, envy is the coast?

    Your computer has a 2.9 Ghz CPU... but Overwatch requires a 3.3 - 3, 46 Ghz CPU. That will slow down the game.

    GTX660 (140W) is far superior to the GTX750Ti (60W), but power is a problem. AQgain, need you a new power supply, but it's an internal model.  See above question. !!!

    You also have a problem of compatibility of the UEFI BIOS.  The GTX750Ti is OK, but the GTX 660 requires BIOS settings inherited.

  • Increase dedicated video RAM on a HP Pavilion P6 2133W

    Hello, I need to know how to increase dedicated video memory, so I can play games that require a dedicated beyond 1 GB video memory. My current dedicated video RAM is 512 MB, my total video RAM is 4096 MB (4 GB).

    Data sheet:

    HP Pavilion P6-2133W

    AMD Vision A6 Quad Core processor at 2.20 GHZ

    AMD Radeon HD 6530d

    Upgrade to 64 bit Windows 8 Pro

    8 GB of system memory

    BIOS v7.14

    (If necessary) AAHD3-HB Hibiscus manufactured by Pegatron Motherboard


    Unfortunately, there is no way to change the amount of video RAM.  It is what it is.

    If you need more video horsepower, you can look into the purchase of a dedicated video card of PCIe x 16 with 1 GB or more of memory for your PC that works with your PC power.

  • ProBook 4440 s: how to change the settings of the bios on my hp ProBook 4440 s to increase dedicated video ram

    I want to increase to play better games.
    How to change through the bios I don't know.
    Help me pls.

    Thank you

    The days of being able to change RAM in BIOS went Bye Bye a few years ago. It was back in the day.

    You can't make changes to the video RAM settings in BIOS.

    You can reduce the resolution if you want to increase performance in a menu of own game options, but at a cost of resolution.

  • HP Pavilion 500-242ea: Ram upgrade

    Hi I have a desktop computer Pavilion 500 - 242ea 64-bit with 6 GB of ram installed 1 x 2 gb Hynix/Hyundai 1600 mhz and 1 x 4 gb Samsung 1600 mhz.

    I would like to increase my ram by an additional 8 GB with a 2 x 4 GB - 1600 mhz cards in empty slots, all first is it possible and secondly what do you sugest?

    My motherboard has four 240-pin ddr dimm sockets plug say this upgrade may be: -.

    PC3-10600 (DDR3-1333) or

    PC3-12800 (DDR3-1600) or

    PC3-14400 (DDR3-1866),

    32 GB unbuffered memory total

    I look forward to your response.

    You can add memory for each vacant home.   I would add two DDR3 2048 MB PC3-12800 (800 mhz) to this system.  But if you wanted to add two 4096 modules, I see no problem.

  • Pavilion 500-246: GB of ram it shows only GB why usable?

    I have a Pavilion of 500-246 with 8 GB of ram it shows only 7.18 usable - PLEASE HELP.

    I also try to install a GeForce 8400 GS with 1024 MB ddr3 pci-e 2.0 and cannot operate. If I plug into the video card and that you start the computer NOTHING on the screen at all. S ' PLEASE HELP.


    The memory problem you reported is normal.

    Part of memory has been reserved for some devices of system such as the integrated graphics card.

    The issue of the video card does not...

    I see the product that your PC came with factory-installed W8.1.

    In order to get a video card no HP to work, you need to change 2 settings of the BIOS before installing your video on any PC card that came with W8 or newer version of the factory.

    See this link to change the BIOS settings.

    Also before you install your video card, you must uninstall the graphics card in Device Manager, check the box uninstall driver, stop, disconnect the PC and install your video card.

    You can do this after you change the BIOS settings.

  • Pavilion 500-339: update video card for a 500-339 Pavilion... room with Ram?

    I posted a message here a few days ago because I wanted to find a possible upgrade for my graphics card. I have a Pavilion 500-339, 3.5 GHz with 8g of RAM. The video card is a Radeo R7 240 and I want to upgrade. Big_Dave said (thanks for that!) but I am facing another problem. The motherboard is good, but compact and I fear that new video card (because it is longer) pretty much sitting on top the RAM (if it fits in all). I know that my computer is not a "PC game", but would that be a problem? One more time card would still hold? What choices do I have? Thank you


    Aries won't present a problem of heat for the graphics card.

    Thanks for posting on the forum.

  • Pavilion g4: LM753LA: increase the RAM in HP Pavilion g4


    I want to increase the RAM on my HP Pavilion g4. I don't know what is the model number, but I'm sure the product number is LM753LA.

    Can you help me please to understand what I can buy RAM? Today it has 3 GB (I think there are two slots: 1 x 2 GB and 1 x 1 GB) and I would replace the 1 GB of RAM with 4 GB of RAM, that's good enough for me.

    I understand that I must choose a memory as follows:

    • 4 GB (to replace the 1 GB)
    • DDR3-SDRAM
    • 204-pin SO-DIMM

    Does make sense for you?

    Are there other features should I consider to make sure that the memory works in my notebook? MHz FSB, voltage etc. ?

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Best regards


    I found the following information, maybe it helps:

    And this is my laptop:


    The card says 8 GB maximum in two slots this means that you can use only 4 + 4 GB. If you have 6 GB, you will need to buy 1 stick of 4 GB and use existing key to 2 GB. CPU - Z shows you all the information you need: brand, RAM card...
