Lenovo B560 video memory size problem

Hi all.

My notebook configuration:

15.6 HD LED Glare/Intel Core i3-380M 2.53GHz/ 4G(1066)-DDR3/ 500G(SATA-9MM/ 5400)/ Integrated Intel GMA HD/DVD+/-RW/Cam 0.3Mp/6cell 2.2A/WiFi/4-1 Multi-card Reader (SD/MMC/MS/MS Pro/XD/SD Pro)

The problem is with video memory size. It's always 64 mb.. no more.....

When I have same problem like this with my old notebook acer, I just load new wersion of BIOS and update it. after that I can change video memory size in BIOS.

 

Now tell me please, how I can change video memory size for my integrated video Integrated Intel GMA HD ?

for example, to 128 mb or 256 mb video memory.

More details...:

1) Intel Core i3-380M (2.53 ГГц) Intel HM55

2) Windows 7 x64

Could you help me? 

A lot of thanks.

P.S/ Sorry for my bad English)

Re: Lenovo B560 video memory size problem

i remember similar issue(s) before but as i remember bios update is necessary. also, you can try to install more ram, it may help.

please, press windows + r, type "dxdiag" and post the memory information on display tab.

Re: Lenovo B560 video memory size problem

Hi.
I realy have 64 mb video memory.
It's true.
By default my notebook has 2 gb DDR-3 memory.
and now I buy 2 modules ddr-3 2 gb capacity. Total=4gb memory.
But video memory now also 64 mb. no more.
How I can resolve this problem?
In my BIOS (Phoenix version 39CN16WW) no options to change video memory.
Could you tell me a new vewrion of BIOS for my notebook or any other software to halp me change video memory?
Thank you.

No. It's only single video adapter present - Intel HD graphics
there are no other video devices or unknown devices.
Only Intel HD

Re: Lenovo B560 video memory size problem

try this: press windows + r, type "msconfig" > boot > advanced options > check maximum memory > increase it > restart your computer and check if it works.

Re: Lenovo B560 video memory size problem

when I set this value to 128, 256 etc - System do not load, I boot in safe mode and set this value to default.
Then I set this value to 3800, 3400 etc.. but size of video memory stay on 64 mb.
Could you help me to resolve this problem via another way?
Thank you.

it's seems only way to solve this issue is bios update.

ps: yes, i did read it but due to it may be related to bios, there's nothing i can do.
