INTEL HD 3000 Dedicated memory 0MB

Jump to solution

I'm having a HP pavilion g6, Core i3, 6GB RAM with Windows 10 pro 64bit..

it has a Intel HD 3000 graphics card which gives a dedicated memory of 0MB.. is there any way i can increase this or will it get corrected if I downgrade my OS to Windows 8..

Please help me with this??

Thankyou..

Well, Bro,

if you go down to W8.1, you will need to be 32-bit instead of 64-bit.

To continue to be 64-bit, you need to go to W8, not W8.1.

If you want to be W8.1 64-bit, you have the same problem you have now.

If you are a desktop, you can try adding a compatible graphics card.

 

Or, face the reality of old hardware, and get yourself a new system that is supported on W10.

HD3000 graphics are not supported on W10. You are using the Microsoft generic driver, which is limited in performance and features.

 

Do not worry about this. There is no driver for HD3000 for Windows 10.

Beats me. Dedicated video memory is controlled by the bios on your motherboard. If HP did their job, and the Intel driver works, you should see some value there, like 64 or 128MB.

 

Again, the real solution is NEW hardware, as your problem is not going away. It will only get worse. The best you will ever do is OpenGL 3.1, and no OpenCL. If you are looking to improve your game performance, you will get nothing from 32, or 64, of 128MB.

 

Again, who really wants to be on W8x?

And, I do not recommend downgrading. Who in the world really wants to be on W8.x? If you told me Windows 7, at least we could discuss it!<G>

Windows 7 is DEAD. Although W7 was great, and certainly better than W8x, it is dead. No support, and some 3rd party apps are abandoning support (as they should).

 

I am going to try one more time - get new(er) hardware.
