I would like to play some games but I keep running out of memory. I changed this in the BIOS but systemrequirementslab still says i only have 32mb

Your GPU has on board VRAM. It, most of the time, will only use that VRAM.

Also, if your GPU only has 32MB of RAM..it's time to get a new GPU.

You sure you changed it in your Bios? I did exactly the same, but then I realized I forgot to save :X

I saved it and quit but that did nothing apparently

Eh. Still better than my laptop, which doesn't even have a GPU and is still using IDE hard drives.

Even assuming it was possible, it would only help if you didn't have a dedicated graphics card. I doubt you have one, but I still don't think it's possible.

Is it intel HD Graphics? If yes you can set the VRAM from BIOS.
