"when i play PES 2010 in setting said i only have vram 64mb"

That's right, because that's all you have. Your laptop has Intel GMA 4500M integrated graphics which has a base setting of 64MB & the rest is "dynamically shared".

"can anybody help me how to increase my vRAM not from BIOS?"

No. Dynamically shared memory varies based on need. There is no way to adjust it.

The GMA 4500M is a low end graphics solution that is used in cheap laptops. Here's what's said about it's performance:

"The gaming performance of the 4500M is not really good. Only less demanding 3D games and very old games may run fluently in low detail settings. Sims 3 and F.E.A.R. for example achieved 30 fps (with stutters) in low deatails and low resolutions (combined with a fast CPU). 2D applications, games and Windows Vista / Windows 7 Aero are supported without any performance problems. Compared to other modern integrated chipsets like the GeForce 9400M or the Radeon HD 3200, the 4500M is clearly the slowest especially for 3D games."

Based on the system requirements for PES 2010, your laptop is not capbale of playing it acceptably, if at all. There's nothing you can do to change that other than to buy a decent gaming laptop.

"Then i can't use this laptop for gaming"

What you have is more of a general purpose laptop. You should have no problem playing older games with it, but if you want to play modern games & play them well, you need a gaming laptop. And as kuwese eluded to, the amount of memory used by the graphics isn't as important as the graphics chip. If you put an Intel integrated graphics chip with 1GB shared memory up against a gaming graphics chips with 256MB of dedicated memory, it would be no contest. The gaming chip would kick it's butt. The only problem is, gaming laptops are expensive...usually twice the cost of a 'normal' laptop.

It's possible in many gaming laptops but not 'normal' laptops.
