Hi

 

Amount of Video memory is controlled by the hardware and we won't we able to neither increase nor decrease it from within Windows. Some desktop motherboards with Nvidia or ATI chipset does have an option to set video RAM via BIOS setup. But laptop BIOS setup generally offers very limited tweaks and hence it is not possible to change the amount of video RAM. 

 

This is one of the limitations of a laptop when compared to a desktop PC. If it is a desktop, you can easily purchase a cheap graphic card in a situation like this.

What is the brand and model of the system? Which driver are you installing, and getting the flashing fault? Hybrid video does require the proper operation of the Windows driver. If the system has problems with the driver you have, the manufacturer may have released a more recent driver updated for Windows 8, or we may be able to identify another model with the same hardware for which a suitable driver has been released.

Hi

 

HP Pavilion G6 is only a series number. There are several models available in this category. You will find the exact model number printed on the bottom sticker.

Hi

 

Your laptop officially supports Windows 8 and correct drivers are available from the HP support site. Please follow the below steps.

 

:step1: Uninstall the currently installed Intel and Nvidia graphic driver completely from the system ( control panel --> Programs and features).

 

:step2: Now download and install the drivers from the below link. Make sure to install the Intel driver first followed by Nvidia driver.

 

For 64 Bit Windows 8 : 

 

Intel HD graphics driver - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59149.exe

 

Nvidia Graphics driver - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59148.exe

 

For 32 Bit Windows 8 :

 

Intel HD graphics driver - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59190.exe

 

Nvidia Graphic driver - http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59148.exe

 

Please report your findings in next reply.

Hi

 

Sorry for confusing you. What you need to do is first uninstall currently installed Intel and Nvidia driver from Control Panel -> Programs. Then install Intel driver and Nvidia driver from the above links. Intel should be the first one to install. In other words, don't install Nvidia driver without installing Intel driver first.
