Insufficient video RAM

Is there any way to increase the amount of RAM dedicated to graphics on a dell inspiron n5010 laptop?
My specs are as follows:

cpu: intel quad-core i3 processor
ram: 4 Gb dual channel
gpu: intel hd graphics (intergrated)
Os: windows 7 64-bit
current dedicated graphics memory: 64Mb

I am not afraid to use aftermarket tools like hacked bios etc…

please help!

You can go into the bios and see if it will allow you to add more system memory towards video. Check before and after to see if you notice any change.

There is no 3rd party software to try.

You do not hack a bios.

The only safe way is the way I described.

Insufficient privleges to run defrag
If I try to run the GUI version, I have to click on the "Defrag Now" button a few times before the defragmenter will even open.
