hi, I would like to know if there is a way to upgrade a notebook graphics card, because I just have recently bought a game (starcraft 2) and Im having some problems running it. I´ve looked all around the web and haven´t found anything that I can use. My chipset it´s an intel cantiga gl40 and my video card its a mobile intel 4 series express chiset family. is there a way replace this video card and if I can how can I do it? thanks

Notebook graphics cards are for the most part integrated in to the motherboard. They can not be upgraded. An upgrade to a mobile video card pretty much means to upgrade the entire laptop.

It is impossible to upgrade the GPU in your case as it is integrated on to your Mobo.

However, for some laptops it is possible through an MXM card swap.
