davidallen, videomemory in your videocard is assigned dynamically from system RAM, no option in BIOS needed.

 

BaileyMoto please read carefullytopic of thread - this one is about Y430, not S10.

Re: y430 No way to increase video memory from system RAM

I have the same question, just that in the opposite way. Is there any method so that i can REDUCE the MAXimum amount of RAM the Intel 4500MHD is using? It is eating 1 Gigabyte of RAM, and since i have a 32 bit OS, from 3.5 Gigs i go down to max 2.5. I would like to make it hold on to max 512Mb if RAM since the video card is not that powerfull to need such a huge amount of memory Smiley Happy
