You cannot upgrade the CPU or the graphics card. You must buy a new laptop and even that laptop will most likely not be upgradeable.

Only specific laptops can be upgraded and they generally start at $1,500+.

try looking for a NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT or AMD Radeon HD 4650. those will be fine with your 250W power supply.
