I have an HP (Windows 8.1 desktop). I want to change my dedicated video memory from 512 mb, to 1024 mb. I have a AMD Radeon HD 8330. How do i do this, i cant change it in bios and ive been looking all over but none of the answers have sufficed. Please help me im not very good with computer hardware but im not a complete newbie either.

if it not in bios, you can't change it.
it a integrated gpu, it will use as much as it need.

It could be locked out. Look for something called Shared Memory, Frame buffer, or AGP aperture size.

ok so say i want to run skyrim and its recommended setting on my pc is 1 GB Graphics Memory.
I want to run the recommended instead of the minimum but you say that it will use what is needed not recommended.
so if i want to use recommended settings for gaming will i need to but a new graphics card?

What kind of CPU do you have? That's very important for Skyrim. Also... Integrated graphics isn't good for gaming but if you were to upgrade the graphics card then you'll probably want a better power supply as well. The HD 8330 isn't even close to the recommended GTX 260 for Skyrim.

hd8330 is the integrated gpu in a a4-5000 apu, so it will use the main system ram and Windows will give it as much as is needed. You probably cant change it manually.

edit lol this thread is busy :D D

I hate to tell you this but you need a new computer to run Skyrim any better. An APU just is not going to cut it for that game. It's a very CPU intensive game.
