Hello, I've an HP Elitebook 8460p with a 2ndGen Corei5 processor and 4GB ram.
But my dedicated video memory is 0MB. Kindly help because most of my games require at least 512MB VRAM to run well.

If you cannot set the "dedicated" video memory in the HP BIOS, then you are out of luck.

Also, if you are on Windows 10, there is no Intel driver for your 2nd gen graphics.  All you have is the Microsoft generic driver, which lacks features and performance.

Okay, so will downgrading to Windows 7 or so fix my problem?

Also, how do I change the VRAM from BIOS?

First, check your HP BIOS for the video memory setting.

 

You will need to ask HP about their bios settings.

 

I do not recommend downgrading to W7.  It is not supported.

What you really need to consider is getting modern hardware.  A new system with an 8th gen processor or later.  Then, upgrade your old games to newer versions.
