    increase dedicated ram


    Umm. so i wanted to install a game but first i went to system requirements lab to check if i could play the game.
    But it said i do not have enough dedicated video ram. Since i'm pretty bad with computers i hope some of you could try to help me out with the little bit of info i've found.

    Intel (R) HD Graphics 2000
    Operating system: windows 8 (6.2.9200)
    Physical Memory: 6010MB
    Minimum Graphics Memory: 64MB
    Maximum Graphics Memory: 1664MB
    Graphics Memory in Use: 124MB
    Processor: Intel64 Family 6 Model 42 Stepping 7
    Processor Speed: 2594MHz

    I hope some of you could help me with this information, i do not know if its information you need or if it could help you in any way but i'll give it a try

    Thanks you already for replying to the post.
    So i've tried to follow the instructions but entering the BIOS in windows 8 is different if i'm not wrong.
    I try to enter (and hope it is the BIOS that i'm entering) by going to pc-settings (in the metro thing) then go to general and go to the bottom and start up the pc with advanced startup settings -> then the pc restarts opens in those settings and i go to troubleshoot -> advanced options -> and then "uefi firmware settings".

    Then the computer restarts again and brings me to the menu wich looks pretty much the same as the menu you used to get by pressing F2 on windows xp.
    In this menu, i get some options to choose:
    1 diagnostics
    2 boot menu
    3 computer setup
    4 system recovery
    5 network boot
    6 utilities
    7 run UEFI applications

    i have no idea what i have to pick when i'm at this menu and i have no idea what to expect when i select 1 of those things

    The BIOS is the screen you see before any Window's logos. What you listed is the Windows Diagnostics. Reboot and try the F keys listed, F2, F10, or DEL to enter the BIOS as soon as it reboots.

    When you first turn your computer on, start pressing F2, F10, and DEL quickly and repeatedly. Your BIOS screen should show up within a minute. Then look for the setting described in the article. Make your adjustments. Save and exit.

    I did not really get any further with the F2,F10 and DEL at the startup but i've made a picture of the uefi what i've said something about earlier today and i also got a picture of the screen i get after pressing f10 (its also the screen wich i get in 1 of the uefi options)

    It's a proprietary motherboard, IPXSB-DM (Cork2), so your stuck not being able to adjust anything important in your BIOS. You'll just have the 4 Ways to Improve Intel HD Graphics Performance to work with.
