How to Increase Intel HD Graphics Dedicated Video Memory
1) To increase dedicated video memory first go to BIOS by pressing <F2>, <F10> or <Del> button on your keyboard while start-up of your system.
2) Navigate to Peripherals menu in BIOS.
3) You will see the Internal Graphics Memory Size option. In my case it is set to 512MB. Click on value and specify how much memory you want. I’m going to choose 1024MB. Note that memory is not actually dedicated it just use your system RAM memory. So for specific RAM memory follow the table below:
|RAM||Recommended Video Memory|
|2GB||256MB for Windows and MAC|
|4GB||512MB for Windows and 384MB for MAC|
|6GB or more||1024MB for Windows and 512MB MAC|
4) Now press <F10> to save the settings and exit.
5) To verify that memory is increased or not go to Screen Resolution -> Advanced settings.
