I have a hp pavilion 15 - ec0013dx and It comes with 8gb ddr4 ram, vega graphics, and a dedicated gtx 1050. Now i upgraded the ram to 16 gbs and check compatibility with the processor and chipset and all was good. Plugged it all in System boots and recognizes that i have the full 16gb installed but 10gbs of it is being "system reserved" to the vega graphics. The hp bios is super limited (as im sure you know) so there is no way to change the shared memory value that way. I was wondering if there was a way to completely disable the vega graphics to stop it from reserving the ram or another way to reduce the amount of ram it reserves so i can actually use it for my games. Thank you for your help!

P.S.: I've been looking around and seen some bios "mods" that will allow me to mess with the values as if it was a desktop pc. But I'm not sure how safe that is. And I cant seem to find one for my exact model.
