    Dedicated video ram (Intel HD graphics)

    ADawg47

           I am a gamer on my dell inspirion 3647. I have upgraded to 8gb of ram on the CPU, however my video card only has 112.5mb of dedicated video ram(as shown below). Much to small for the best of today's games to run on and after reading up on many ways to increase the dedicated video ram, I learned that that you can increase it by sharing some of the CPU ram with it through a setting in the the BIOS. I have searched my PC's BIOS on windows 8 (when I previously tried and failed) and on windows 10 when I upgraded but found no setting with the proper name or related function. My specs are as follows: (Copy and pasted from "systemrequirementslab.com")

      My Windows 10 BIOS has no option to share RAM or anything related to it. If anyone can help me increase my dedicated video ram, I would be very glad as I really want to play the 3 games I spent $60 each on.
