Not enough dedicated video RAM, how to acces & change bios

Hey, i'm Andrew.

My problem: Not enough Dedicated Video RAM (currently 64MB)

Story:

I want to play this game, but i always check it first with www.CanYouRunIt.com and my Lenovo ThinkPad meets all requirements except one. "Dedicated Video Ram" , its needs to be 256 MB.

So i searched the web and found a topic on this website (Click Here), with the same issue only the solution there was for HP model.

Question:

How do i change this value? (Change it in my Bios right?)

Computer model:

Lenovo Thinkpad Edge 15 15.6" (500 GB, Core i3, 2.53 GHz, 4 GB) Notebook - Black (03193SU)


Picture:
Run --> dxdiag.exe

You'd get much better advice if you supply the complete model number of your laptop. (I assume that it's a laptop.)

I had a quick look at the Lenovo site, but couldn't find anything. Specifically, I was looking for information on BIOS settings, as this is where I believe this setting would reside. What graphics options do you have in the BIOS (if any) ?
