I have a Inspiron 15 3505 (Its weird Ik Ik) the most Lovely Part of this laptop is it cost's around 50k INR ~ around 700$ 
but ships with 8Gig ram AMD ryzen 7 3700 U (pretty well cooled system) 250 Gig Nvme SSD  and a Average GPU

then I realized the Usable memory f0r ram is 6 Gigs I am unable to increase r decrease it :(
This is making a ram bottle neck for me How to Update Bios in the specified modal 

Pic linked below 
I hope some weird guy like me may have brought it :)

This is by default reservated for the integrated gpu of the 3700u you can change it in the bios to take up less BUT you will NEVER get the full 8gb.

Leave the allocation alone and add another 8GB of ram. Make sure you get an antistatic wrist band if your going to open it up there is a tiny chance you could cause damage from static electricity.

 

This might be similar to you system.

Browse all setting in the bios and see if any of them have a description mentioning shared memory, Vram, video ram or graphic memory.

Unless the bios has had a major upgrade there is no search feature?

 

These setting are found before the computer boots. when the computer first turns on you will normally see a black screen with instruction on what key to press to enter the bios this might be fast so can talk a few times turning the computer on and off to read it. once you know what this key is restart the compute again and keep pressing this key. This will then enter the bios and not windows!

So that laptop probably simply doesn't give you the choice. Cheap laptops often have almost no configurable options in the BIOS.

This is also a particular issue for Dell, which doesn't know how to make a competent BIOS.

Then as I expected dell does not allow you to alter it. Only solution is to add more ram.
