"so it means that if i want to get a game that requires 512 mb dedicated video card ram i can't get it?"

Yes.

Many desktop BIOS's have an option to increase base shared video memory. That doesn't improve performance but will often make it possible to install the game. Such options are rarely available in a laptop. There is no other way.

Laptops, except for the so called "gaming laptops", are not game machines and there is nothing you can do that will make it so.

The HD4000 is not a graphics "card", it's a GPU integrated into the 3rd gen Intel Core i5/i7 processor. The graphics memory is 100% shared, meaning there is no "dedicated memory". The amount changes on the fly depending on need. Even if you could increase the base allocation setting (which you can't), it wouldn't improve graphics performance.

Here's a list of games that should be playable, but you may have to lower the game settings & in-game screen resolution to get acceptable frame rates.

Generally speaking, if you want to play games AND play them well, you need a desktop gaming machine or a gaming laptop. The ProBook 6570b is considered a business laptop, not a gamer.

You haven't stated which game(s) you want to play, but you might be able trick the game into thinking you have the required graphics memory. You would have to install the game, then edit the game's configuration file. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Do some searching 1st to see if anyone else has been successful. Regardless, you can't make up for a lack of gaming hardware. You should stick to games that are on the list posted in my other response, but notice those games were tested with Windows 7, not Win8 or Win10. Make sure you do your homework before wasting any money on game titles that won't be playable on your laptop.
