    Hello to all,

    I have HP4530s laptop with core i-5 CPU-2410M with 4 GB RAM and Radeon Graphics.

    In basic System information I see this:
    Installed RAM 4GB (2.69 Usable). Does this mean that some of the RAM memory is shared for VGA or not?

    How to check whether RAM memory is used for VGA and how much memory is available for VGA??

    Thank you

    I'm assuming you have a HP ProBook 4530s laptop that's running Windows 7.

    Right-click an empty space on the screen, then click "Personalize", then click "Display" - or - go to Control Panel - Display.

    Click "Adjust resolution" or "Change display settings, then click "Advanced settings".

    Select the "Adapter" tab.

    The amount of dedicated and shared RAM for the display device will be listed.


    That model laptop supports up to 8 GB of DDR3 PC3-10600 RAM.

    If it's running the 64-bit version of Windows 7, you might consider adding more RAM.

    8 GB (4 GB X 2)
