Allocating More RAM to E-350's 6310

Hi Guys,

I've been toying with the idea of seeing if I can allocate more RAM to my APU in my Asus EEE PC 1215B. I have the E-350 chip with integrated AMD 6310 graphics. I don't have any options to do anything in the UEFI, but I looked around and found someone with a similar setup who claims that his friend was able to rewrite some code to get the GPU to take something like a full GB of system RAM.

My netbook only came with 2 GB of RAM, but I added another 4 GB stick, so I have more than enough to spare at this point, if anyone knows how. I'd be quite grateful if someone could point me in the right direction for modding the EUFI, as it seems like a tricky thing. I'm quite tech-savvy, and I've built a few computers from scratch, but this software side is an area where I'm not as familiar as I'd like to be.

The link to the forum where the guys posts about allocating more RAM: http://forums.extremeoverclocking.com/t354440.html

And a quote from his post: "EDIT: In my laptop (AS5253-BZ602) you are not able to change the dedicated video memory on bios, my friend eddited a copy of my bios and instead of having 256mb of video memory now I have 512mb and able to change it to 1gb, I would post the link of my bios but still testing..."

Thanks for any help you can offer,
xcSteve

  2. I think it's possible to increase via bios options or update? If not then it's also possible to write the higher allocated ram via the driver and it's totally possible. Royal BNA for gma x4500mhd modded from 64mb to 128mb via driver alone and gained at least 15 fps for all games.

    Using Notepad++ you can search for the string if u type 384 or the current allocated amount as a keyword and search in directory of the C:\AMD folder. You could also extract all the modules from the BIOS file and Notepad++ search for 384 as well and do one search for all files in the extracted bios file directory. Once the value is found, simply alter the number and save. If done with the bios the file would have to be re-integrated and re-compiled to flash again. I once got close to changing an Old Nvidia 7150M from 128MB to 1024MB via the Bios modules searching and changing the value via Notepad++. Notepad++ is your friend when making changes like this.

    I get my HP 3105M in soon and i'll look into it for sure! I'd like to try 1024 or even 1536MB if I can since I'm gonna run 2x 4GB modules for 8GB total.
