No idea, it has been a while since I even used a computer with no dedicated GPU, let alone buying one. BIOS and drivers are the only two places where I'd reckon you'd be able to change it. You'd have to check the drivers and see if such option exist.

That laptop uses integrated graphics, rather than dedicated graphics, so the RAM and VRAM here is exactly the same.

These days, however, the RAM/VRAM allocation is done dynamically, so I'd imagine the only way he'd be able to do it is via Drivers, but that may not even affect his performance as the GPU is still rather weak.
