So I have an ASUS gaming laptop with a GTX 980m graphics card in it and as you may know it doesn't have the graphics configuration option in the bios as most newer laptops don't. I'm trying to increase my dedicated video memory on some games that I play for example COD4 Remastered, it says I have 4060MB video memory dedicated but I have a total of 16358MB and 12262MB of that is shared so I have plenty of memory it just isn't using it to its full potential is there any way I can change that?

✔ Best Answer
It's not the GPU RAM that's causing the problem as 4GB VRAM is more than enough for COD4.

Your laptop will most likely have dual, switchable graphics, an integrated Intel GPU for normal use plus the more powerful GTX 980M for running games or graphics-intensive applications.

However, if you haven't set the game up to use the GTX GPU it will use the default Intel GPU which doesn't cut it for running COD4.

You need to go into Windows Control Panel, then open Nvidia Control Panel.
Click on "Manage 3D Settings" in the left pane.

Now under the "Program Settings" tab in the larger pane, click "Add" and navigate to the COD4 executable and choose "High Performance Nvidia Processor".
