In your BIOS there should be something called similar to "ADVANCED CHIPSET FEATURES" find that and navigate through it until you find "VGA SHARE MEMORY SIZE" that tab will allow to adjust DVRAM.

Sorry, I went through all the settings and options in BIOS. there are no options to change memory or there is no numbers to change.

Do you have a laptop, custom built PC, or manufacturer PC (Toshiba Towers, Dell Towers, etc). Many custom builds by those companies and laptops, will not allow to adjust VRAM because it will harmful to your system stability.

By the way, RAM is different than VRAM. VRAM is from your GPU. Depending on GPU; 1gb, 2gb, 4gb, you may or may not be able to adjust this.

By the sounds of it, you listed you have "Video Card Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000" which is a low-end integrated gpu. I am almost 100% sure you cannot adjust it.

I have THOSIBA LX830 which is all in one Built in PC. I can hardly play any games with this one. This is terrible, can't do anything with 32 mb. also,in the title of running BIOS,insted of BIOS, it said: INXYDEH20
