  1. Hi , just wondering , I have a 4GB laptop (dell inspiron n5010) with i3 350 processor and 500 GB HD ... lately I wanted to play the most recent GTA and what happened ? well the game booted but barely have i gone out of the first corner the whole background disappeared ... I went to my graphics settings and it says Generic PnP Monitor and Intel(R) HD Graphics
    -Chip type Intel HD
    -Dac type Internal
    -Bios info : Intel Video BIOS
    -Total Available graphics memory 1696 MB
    -Dedicated Video Memory 64MB
    -System Video memory 0MB
    -shared system memory 1632MB

    Is there any way to increase the Video memory on my laptop ?
    I will add to it that in the Bios itself there are no options available for me to even lower it they are all kind of @locked@
    I have been trying everything even updates from intel etc but not helping...

    All you can do is max out your system memory, if it isn't maxed already. There might be an option in the laptops bios to increase the shared video memory
