Look under "Display" or "Memory" in the BIOS settings and see if you can't find something called Memory Share or VGA Share Memory.

You can't adjust the video ram amount on that system since it's all about shared memory, i.e the Intel GMA has no dedicated memory at all, it will 'borrow' memory (32-1696MB) from the RAM. Pretty awful for any form of gaming/intensive 3D Apps.

Under "Display" there was only an option to change the startup LOGO

and

Under "Memory" there was no such thing. Only enabled and disabled options for using VRAM ( i enabled it)

Yes i found that under "Intel (R) HD Graphics" (see picture)

So if it borrows, why cant it borrow more than 64MB for dedicated memory ?

Dedicated memory falls under the umbrella of Hardware Reserved, which in this case is a portion of RAM that the BIOS has allocated to the graphics for its exclusive use. This amount may, or may not, be able to be changed if the BIOS permits. If this option isn't there, then you're stuck with the default. Shared memory, and this depends on the amount of memory in your system, is dynamically assigned as and when required. However, as more memory is assigned to the graphics, it means that less is available for other uses and the reliance on the paging file will increase, together with a general slowing down of your machine.

Unfortunately, there isn't a great deal you can do. Laptops just simply are not designed for heavy graphics applications such as games; rather they are intended as business/office type machines where there is less graphics demand. That is not to say that they won't run games; they will, but it won't be as smooth as on a desktop.
