    1. It is called "Display" not video. If there is no display your computer may be running on a basic windows video driver and not recognizing the video chip. If that is the case you need to try and get the proper video driver from the video card/chip or laptop/PC manufacturers site. Performance will improve with the proper driver.

    1. Doing "You can also get more details about intel graphic drivers using this trick

      Press ctrl + alt + F12" gives lots of Intel graphics settings but does not give memory used by the graphics chips on my HP envy laptop however dxdiag does show it as 4gb.
