It is unlikely that you will be able to add a graphics card - I've yet to come across a laptop where you could - but tell us the exact make/model to be sure And next time you might consider a self-build desktop - the key benefit is the upgrade-ability....

Sorry your best bet is to purchase a new laptop!
