I thought my graphics hd4000 was ok as I could play chess ok, however now I have networking working and have tried iplayer I realise it is not working :(
I have had a look at fixing it but it all revolves around the amount of memory set for it in the bios.
My bios is reporting 128mb but it is not an option that can be changed. There is a list of numbers that can be put in a plist but you have to choose one that matches the amount of ram you are using, and guess what, there is no number that corresponds to 128mb.
Does anyone know of any other work around?
The laptop is an Acer V5-171 which has an i3 with hd4000.
