I've recently upgraded my GPU and all of my monitors are running off it, so I'm left with my AMD A8-5500 APU which isn't doing any graphics processing but is still claiming 533MB of system memory as VRAM (control panel says 7.46GB of the 8GB is usable). This seems like a huge waste but I can't find how to reclaim it. CCC recognises the APU graphics as disabled.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

BleepingComputer has members spread all round the world. You need to allow a reasonable amount of time for responses.

 

'Bumping' after perhaps 48 hours is acceptable, after 34 minutes is not.

Hardware reserved memory will be controlled by settings in the BIOS, so if it can be manually adjusted, there will be a corresponding BIOS menu item. Without knowing what mainboard is in your system, we'll only be able to make that general observation, so check through the available options.
