Question on onboard graphics

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
I have got a real strange question that a friend of mine asked me yesterday....
He has got a computer with onboard intel graphics. Hi asked me if he could extend the memory dedicated to graphics from 64MB to 128MB.
Can this be done? any setting in BIOS or anything else?
Or is this controlled by the application used? I mean if an application needs more memory it takes more, if it doesn't need much memory it takes less. How does that work?

Well first of all the max memory depends on the chipset , also if it does support higher memory size then the pc should have automatically selected it , but still you should be able to change it through the bios if you tell me the mobo ill be able to help more

Maybe you could increase the AGP Aperture size in the BIOS. Even though it is not in an AGP slot the GPU still connects through the AGP bus so I think it should apply. At least that is the way I understand it. Even if you could, it would be borrowing from the system memory and decreasing performance, no? Is it a laptop? If not he might be better off getting a cheap card for it instead of using the integrated graphics.
