I've been going nuts with this. I'm trying to get access to the Nitro 5 advanced BIOS so I can change the VRAM taken by the iGPU. The iGPU takes 2GB of RAM from my laptop.
I've learned my lesson, I will never buy another Acer piece of equipment ever again, but I still need that RAM back, and I can't afford another stick right now due to personal issues.

I've tried a few combos (Fn+Tab, F10+A, a weird combo I found on Reddit) but I haven't found success.

I'm posting this hopping someone knows this keycombo, please, if you do, share it. I'll be very VERY grateful to you.

I was talking about the advance menu, but I'm about ready to give up.

If you're reading this, don't buy Acer, they are pieces of <Mod Edit>, and will force you to flash your BIOS to fix the mess their engineers made. Who takes 2GBs of RAM from a computer to give all of it to a <Mod Edit> iGPU while you have a dedicated one with 4GBs DDR5??? Worse yet! They lock you in a "baby's first BIOS" and refuse to give you access to the real advanced stuff! What the <Mod Edit> are Acer engineers putting up their <Mod Edit>???

I'm sorry for the rant, Acer has broken me.

because that how laptop work. it use the igpu unless you do something that need more power.
while it is call a gaming laptop. it really low end one. if you want more control, should have get a high end one

or Should have get a desktop.

You need to learn more about your computer before posting something like that... according what you said your Nitro 5 use AMD Ryzen right?

So thats no Acer faults, AMD processors with Vega iGPU reserve part of RAM to its video. That its normal on ALL Ryzen processors with iGPU.
