VRAM is something that physically exists on your GPU, so you can't increase your VRAM without changing your GPU.

The only vRAM you might be able to increase is your APU processor's integrated Graphics. But only if there is a BIOS setting to for that.

If there are no BIOS settings to increase or decrease your Integrated Graphics vRAM than whatever you have is permanent.

But as mentioned vRAM on Discrete GPUs is built in.

Plus if you only have 4 GB of System Ram it is a good idea to increase it to at least 8GB. Your laptop will run better and slightly faster.
