Hardware Reserved memory using up more than half of system ram on my laptop

Re-installed Windows 8.1 64 bit and updated the bios. Tried Win10 64 bit and still the same issue.

It wont let me revert back to an older BIOS version and theres no setting in the BIOS that lets me allocate memory to the iGPU

It has an R7 M256 gpu. I made sure its not being limited by the max amount of memory in msconfig and it isnt

  1. Have you tried using a bootable dos to install the old BIOS?
  2. Is it a setting in the AMD drivers?
  3. Yo, your video card is using dedicated RAM as VRAM. In the BIOS you should be able to adjust the amount of allocated RAM to your video card. Hope this helps. Peace.
