Pavilion p7 - 1436 s: send more video memory dedicated RAM?


I have a Pavilion p7 - 1436, and a game I want to play requires a minimum of 1 GB of video RAM dedicated.

My graphic card/adapter is an AMD Radeon HD 7540D.

I have 8 GB of total RAM, and when I check my profile, this happens:

Total available graphics memory: 4096 MB

Dedicated video memory: 512 MB

Video memory: 0 MB

Shared system memory: 3584 MB

I would spend at least a gigabyte of video memory dedicated , but I can't figure out how. I restarted my compurer and press F2/F10/DEL to get a certain menu, but the menu gave options for enforcement of controls on memory, not not the reallocation. I don't know if this menu has been the "BIOS" than other discussions they said access.

Thank you and I hope you can help!



I wouldn't waste your time difference after that 512 MB is insignificant.

I suggest using a discrete graphics card.

    Remapping memory for graphics via the BIOS.

    If the remapping of the BIOS feature is not available in the BIOS under configuration, which will then be a limitation. This means that it is set to Auto or to a certain amount.

  • Increase video memory dedicated for my computer...

    Hi, my computer is a Windows Vista Ultimate, Intel Core to Duo T7700 2.4 GHz, 4 GB of RAM, 2 GB of RAM, blah blah blah, video Total rest is not necessary.

    Anyway, I wanted to know how to increase my DEDICATED VIDEO RAM, not the total. Currently, my dedicated video memory is sitting up to 256 MB, which means approximately 1.74 GB of video RAM is not used (supposedly).
    I tried everything to my Start menu to enter the "BIOS", which everyone says is the way to change the dedicated video memory. Unfortunately, the BIOS does not turn upward anywhere and I can't find another way to change the dedicated video memory.
    What is the easiest or more simplified to change my dedicated video memory? Or I do something wrong?
    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
    P.S. I use my computer to play various games (that you might have supposed), but I have played games that require more dedicated video RAM to display for my computer, for example 512 MB, while I have 256 MB, as mentioned previously. The games work well and generally smooth. Is it just because of the CPU or is my video memory dedicated, is actually just a mask for the amount of RAM? Or maybe something else?

    Despite an installation successful all the necessary drivers, I still could not see the displayed as 1 GB of video memory dedicated. I wrote an email to [email protected] July 22, 2014, but there is no answer yet. I had also chatted with HP an Expert on the issue, but there is solution.

    The latest graphics drivers installed are Intel HD Graphics 4000 Version - and NVIDIA GeForce 820 M Version - My operating system is Windows 8.1.

    Kindly let me know if there is anything wrong with my laptop newly purchased.


    By default you will see the Intel memory and this number for the Intel HD 4000. On the other screen, you can see the Nvidia card. Nothing wrong, at least he wasn't there.

  • How can I increase the video memory dedicated Satellite C660?


    I'm on a Toshiba Satellite C660 and I was wondering if it was possible to increase the minimum 64 MB dedicated video memory. I've got 1696 MB total available graphics memory and 8gbs of RAM.
    I have had a look in the BIOS settings but couldn't find something useful.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do about it. There is not an option where you can change it manually. It works automatically.

    With more RAM, more memory will be used for graphical operations.

  • Pavilion p6-2026: managed memory dedicated RAM

    Recently I tried to update my graphics card on my Pavilion which is a p6-2026, but the only problem I have is that I don't know if I can change the graphics card on this subject so I decided to look for another way to upgrade my graphics until I came on the dedicated video memory and I looked at how much I use and he said that I use only 64 MB of 1696 MB. So I went looking how to change that and I discovered that you can change it in the BIOS in advance or something smart but the problem is that the BIOS is a very sensitive area and if I mess up something it can cause big problems with my computer. So I have a few questions.

    1. is it safe change memory dedicated without causing problems?

    2. is it possible for me to change the graphics card on it?

    3. If I change dedicated memory and the graphics card inside my pavilion breaks is it safe to put in another graphics card without causing problems?

    Thank you if you answer them.


    1. you will not be able to do this BIOSwon can't allow you change/re-assign RAM.

    2. your machine has a slot for a video card:

    Thank you

    Carlos, welcome to the forum.

    No, there is no way to change the integrated video memory.  Your best option would be to install a discrete PCI Express x 16 (Gen 2.0) video card.  This would also require a power supply (PSU) upgrade.  Your power supply is only 300W and recent video cards require a minimum of 400w.

  • HP pavilion n040sx: dedicated to video memory setting not in bios

    The President complied,

    I have very light colors on my laptop by comparing with other laptops... They have dark colors... I have 8 GB of ram... 2 GB dedicated nvidia ge force 740 M graphics... But there is no video memory dedicated in the graphics card intel... And there is no setting to change the video memory on bios... I've updated to the latest version of the hp site... Help, please... I have intel core i 7 (3rd generation mobile)...

    Video memory has nothing to do with the level of the blackness of your screen.

    Each screen of the laptop is different.

    Have you tried to connect an external monitor to your PC?

    And IPS monitor has very rich dark levels and an amoled or Plazma TV have deeper blacks.

    Most of the screens of laptops are not very good when it comes to produce dark colors.

    I suggest you to try display color calibration to make things to look better.

  • Satellite L300-1AI - how to put more video RAM?


    I struggle a bit with the graphics card.

    I bought GrandTheftAuto IV, and although it runs, it runs very slowly. The cause for this is that it uses only 124 MB of video ram.

    I went to the site of intel to learn more, and it turns out that toshiba will set up my video ram before sending it.
    (about 1/2 down, titled: can I increase the amount of memory graphics using my computer is?)

    Y at - it an option for me to set up a little more ram on the graphics card?

    Because at the moment, if I will:
    Desktop computer - make a right click, customize, display settings, advanced settings
    Get the type of adapter and information.
    Its a Mobile Intel (r) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
    1341MB available total graphics memory
    128 MB of dedicated video memory
    Video 0MB system memory
    1213MB shared system memory

    The quesitons I need to answer: why vista/intel usually allocate more video memory it is necessary. GTA IV seems not to be allowed to see the dedicated video memory.
    And then, how can I say vista/intel to allocate video memory dedicated more or maybe video memory system?
    Dynamic video memory allocation thingy seems to not work very well.

    I have already been in the graphics media accelerator driver and changed the 3D, of Normal driver memory settings to high.


    Normally the video RAM is switchable dynamic and you can t change.
    What you can do is update your RAM and then you will have more video RAM.
    However, you should not change the video RAM. Get this s automatically.

    On GTAIV I can say, install the latest hotfix.
    In addition, you can GTAIV tell you more RAM:
    Create a commandline.txt in the main folder of GTAIV and enter this txt to the following file:
    -availablevidmem 2.0

    This option set the amount of physical memory to video.

  • Equium L10-273: can I increase video memory (UMA)?

    I ordered an another 512MB in addition to the basic 256 MB (240 MB is available, is broken down between 16 MB video memory). Once I added the extra 512 MB can I allocate more video memory?

    Thank you


    Hi guys

    Firstly a small description on UMA for some newbie s:
    Unified memory architecture. A computer graphics chip integrated into the motherboard using a part of the main memory of the computer for the video memory is supposed to have a Unified Memory Architecture.

    I think each of us knows the updated graphics card (I mean replacement) is usually not possible on laptops.
    It s just a different technology as a desktop PC

    However, shared memory graphics card using different values of graphics memory.
    For example on Equium L10-300 (Equium L10-273 is not know for me) 32 MB and 64 MB.

    The upgrade of main memory will not increase the graphics memory up to 128 or 256 MB.
    This is not possible because on Equium L10-300, shared memory graphics card supports only 32 to 64 MB.

    In your case maybe only from 16 to 32 MB.

    I have a PC Compaq laptop CQ56-110us.  Windows 7 says is has 797 MB video memory shared from the main memory of 2 GB.  I want to reduce the use of video memory, i.e. 256MB.  Is this possible?  If yes how.  I would appreciate help with this.

    Thank you


    Don, welcome to the forum.

    Built-in memory is allocated by the system.  As more video memory is required, is allocated.  There is no way that you can change.
