Solved How do I change my dedicated video memory?

April 30, 2017 at 14:43:42
Specs: Windows 7
I have a HP pavilion 255 with Radeon R2 integrated GPU. My laptop is not even able to play 720p video, run old games like WC3.... and I think it should.

So I checked my VRAM and I only have 16 MB.

My BIOS only allows me to change the date and has no Advanced Settings tab.

Any clues??


EDIT: I read that Radeon R2 does not have dedicated VRAM and will access main system memory. Is that true? With 4 Gb of RAM it would be enought to play 720p video and run ancient games... Something is not working here, I have no idea Q.Q

I would expect it to be able to do this. Is this laptop a recent acquisition? If not was it ever able to play 720p video and run ancient games?

If it is a problem that has come along over a period of time run these malware checks in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If any of them find problems please copy/paste their logs on here. If you lose the ADW log you can find it as a text file in the ADWCleaner folder directly off the system drive root (usually C).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
