How do I increase Dedicated Video Memory in Windows 10


First of all i am extremely sorry for asking a windows related question on this forum.
I received very good and accurate answers related to my linux issues, so i just thought if someone could help me out with windows too. :P

I want to increase my dedicated video memory for playing good games.
I m currently using windows 10 on my sony laptop 4GB ram 512MB dedicated video memory geforce 410M graphics card.

thanks in advance!

You can ask whatever questions you'd like, of course. However, as you pointed out, this is a LINUX forum, not a Windows forum. No on here probably knows how to answer this. You need to ask your question in a Windows forum, to get an accurate answer.

You may also want to type "how to increase dedicated video memory in windows 10" into Google, since that pulls up over 300k hits, with the very first one from Microsoft.

Have you checked the BIOS to see if you can increase video memory?

In theory uefi could present almost any set of unique hardware parameters to the OS.

In reality they don't let you easily manage uefi and I assume you have uefi.

Settings in bios would also be my guess.

BAKABON,

Try using Google:
https://forums.geforce.com/default/t...video-memory-/

https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/for...mory-from-gpu/

https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...7d37364?auth=1

The Nvidia 410m is an entry level graphics card and since it is integrated to the motherboard, it is not possible to replace it.
If you must have superior graphics, then a change of machine is needed.
