The laptop model will be on a sticker on the laptop, or it will be silkscreened on the laptop, or somehow otherwise printed on it somewhere.

DV6 is a series, not a model number. That hardly narrows it down at all. Some of them are Intel based, while yours is an AMD based system.

The Radeon 4250 graphics are onboard, and share the main memory.

There may be a way to increase the RAM allocated to graphics, but without knowing the exact model number, it will be hard to find the manual online.

This is your graphics card:

ATI Radeon HD 4250 - Notebookcheck.net Tech

Really doesn't look like it's gonna be capable of handling that even on the lowest settings at a playable framerate, but you can try man.
