Lenovo c260 All-in-One Desktop

Windows 8.1

Machine Type: 10160

CPU: I J1800

HDD: 500G


buit in LCD 18.5

optional HDMI output


OK, so my landlord knocked my pc off my desk recently, and the screen is now a blue-red-black blobby mess. The HDMI output works great with a monitor, but only after Win 8.1 boots up.


The big problem: Win 8 likes to throttle video RAM, and has mine set to 62M instead of 256, which is causing gaming and streaming issues left and right. I have searched for hours for a layout of the BIOS in an attempt to fix it "blind," but now I am at a wall.


Is there ANY way I can fix this? Enable HDMI during bootup? Can someone walk me through the bios layout? can i fix my video RAM INSIDE win 8.1? Am i just screwed?


Any help is greatly appreciated! Thanks.
