There are two types of memory used for onboard graphics - dedicated & shared.

DEDICATED memory is a memory chip on the motherboard. It's completely separate from system RAM & is "dedicated" for graphics only. It cannot be changed or upgraded...it is what it is.

SHARED memory is "stolen" from the main system RAM for use by the graphics. The amount can be changed in the BIOS. How much can be allocated for graphics use depends on how much RAM you have installed, plus whatever limitations are built into the BIOS.

Some systems use 100% shared memory, some use 100% dedicated, & some use a combination of the two (dynamically shared). Dedicated is faster, shared is slower. If you have desktop system, you're always better off with a graphics card than with onboard graphics. If you have a laptop, you're stuck with whatever the manufacturer supplies.

Do you mean Video Memory or Virtual Memory?

usually you cannot increase the dedicated video memory as it is maxed by default. So if you have a 1 gig dedicated card, then it is set as 1 gig, you cannot add anymore. You can however reduce it, and the option is in the bios. If you did not see any options to reduce, then the options are not there.

Dedicated memory is a separate memory chip for graphics use only. The amount is fixed & cannot be changed.

"On Youtube it can be modify up to 520 MB or 1024"
Where are you seeing this? YouTube now uses HTML5 protocol but if you are still using Flash then there are settings for storage space on your HD. This is quite a different thing to graphics memory.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Do you mean you saw a video on youtube describing how to modify video memory on your computer? Are you sure the video was for the same model as yours? My guess is the video was about shared memory as the word 'dedicated'--as it refers to video memory--is often misused.

There may well be solutions but you have to answer the questions people are asking to be able to diagnose your issues.

Answer questions # 7 & 8.

Maybe not so happy. If you have a desktop computer, the solution is to buy & install a gaming graphics card. If you have a laptop, the solution is to buy a new laptop with a better graphics chip.

Even if your BIOS setting did have some feature it is not true dedicated memory. It just gobbles up part of the RAM so it is not available for general use (which you might need).

If you have been through all the answers and suggestions then you will see that it is best to leave well alone. The way forward (if you have some issue with graphics) is to improve the hardware, if possible. The only way to get a bicycle to outperform a fast car is to buy a jet plane.

Are you running 3DM Gta V on-line, or off-line from a downloaded file?

If it is online most likely it is due to your internet which you have already stated is no good. Only your server than sort that out. I don't know who suggested update 5 but if you think it will help then all you can do is keep trying to download it.

I don't see how hacks will help but in any event we don't advise on hacks or cracks on this forum.

If 3DM Gta V is a cracked version then anything could happen and that could be the cause of various issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Why haven't you posted the make/model of your computer? If we knew the system specs, we'd have a better idea of why you're having problems with games. My guess is you have a system that wasn't designed for gaming.
