F8 is usually reserved for Windows Safe Mode. BIOS settings are usually found with by pressing ESC, Delete, or F2 on most system. Some times I run my finger along the entire row of function keys like a piano if it isn't specified which key works during boot up.
Occasionally, most computer owners will need to access BIOS on their computers in order to change or update the computer's most basic operations; such as memory and boot order.
Different computer manufacturers will have you press different buttons to access BIOS depending on the model you have. For example, on my laptop, I press F12 to enter the BIOS setup utility.
Here's how to figure out how to enter your computers BIOS setup utility. 1
Turn your computer on or shut it down and restart it if it is already on.
As soon as the computer starts up, watch for a message that informs you about which button you will need to push in order to enter setup, aka BIOS.
The opportunity to press the correct key to enter BIOS passes by quickly, so you need to find that key and press it before the computer moves on to the next stage of booting. If you miss your chance, just restart the computer and try again.
You can always access BIOS, even on computers that dont have an operating system installed. This is because BIOS is part of your computer's motherboard hardware and has nothing to do with Windows, Linux or whatever operating system you may be using.
You can only change the amount of video memory if your model has a videocard memory that can be dynamically changed. You're correct that it can be done, but only on specific models of notebooks. :) If you're not able to find it on the BIOS then your model might not be one of them.
