    Please tell us exactly what you did. How did you try to raise your graphics card's memory allocation? How much RAM is installed in your mini? Which version of OS X are you running? :apple:

    Did you get information about this mod from a thread like this one? https://forums.macrumors.com/thread...-hd3000-graphics.1766384/page-5#post-24480481

    In that thread and others, many people break their machines while trying to increase their video RAM. Then they struggle to restore their Macs to proper operating condition. Until we provide specific advice, you can scan their stories for ideas about where to start.

    it is not possible to modify the VRAM in a mac mini without a board level micro soldering. Please verify the machine you are doing this on.

    The 2011 uses normal system RAM for graphics memory. You can change how much of the system RAM is reserved for the GPU. See the link in post #2.
