No, generally you cannot expand a laptop's graphics card unless you have a removable graphics card slot which is exclusive to high-end laptops (like Alienware) usually.

If you can, itll be expensive, probably nerfed by BIOS, and even if you do, youll have to sacrifice your wireless card, which is normally what occupies that slot
