✔ Best Answer
The IGP in the Corei5 has no dedicated memory...it uses system memory. And the memory is shared dynamically so it's constantly changing depending on load. There might be a base allocation setting that can be changed but if you're hoping it will improve gaming performance, you'll probably be disappointed. Poke around the BIOS & see if you can find it.

Add a new graphics card to increase your video RAM.
But on most laptop, either Windows OS laptop or other OS laptop, you cannot increase your dedicated video RAM.
