Problem with Intel HD 3000 graphics

Specs: Windows 7, i7-2670/8GB
Hello there,

I recently bought a HP dv6-6165tx model with i7-2670,750GB HD,2GB ATI Radeon 6770M Graphics,8GB RAM.

The manufacture config is 4GB of RAM,with my request they upgraded to 8GB RAM.

Now the issue is,

When I go to the system information,I see that ATI 6770M Adapter RAM shows 2GB which is fine,but Intel HD 3000 Adapter RAM shows around 250MB.
This is when i have 8GB of RAM

When they take off the additional 4GB,the Intel HD 3000 Adapter RAM shows 1.76GB

Iam not sure whats happening here,even the people from HP service centre are not sure..

Am I missing something?Is there any problem.

And Bytheway the BIOS version is up-to-date its F.1B

Suggestions would be appreciated...

HD graphics has no memory of it's own, it's dynamically shared. Do you understand what that means? Do you actually want the graphics using 2GB out of your 8GB system memory when all it may need is 64MB?

When I check in the other notebooks why does it show Adapter RAM of 1.76GB for Intel HD 3000

I am not concerned with the ATI which is a dedicated,my concern is about the Intel on board graphics.
