No you cannot. The graphic card is soldered into the motherboard. Your laptop needs a MXM slot to upgrade; either Type I, II, or III. The type defines the size format as more powerful cards requires a larger format size.

Generally speaking, at least 98% of laptops out there cannot have their graphic card upgraded. Those few that can be upgraded are gaming laptops to begin with and they generally start at $1,500. Not all gaming laptops can be upgraded either, only certain ones.
