you could probably use an extra gig of RAM though. Should be pretty cheap and easy to install...

It may be possible, but probably not. I would only attempt this if I was about to get a new laptop and upgrading this one would be a bonus or a reason to go ahead and buy a new one.

First are you able to remove the card see if you can. Taking a laptop apart is tedious and a pain lots of small screws and plastic parts that break easily.

Does the card look like this?

If you take it apart and the video card looks like the one I linked too then you might be able to upgrade it. but even if your does come out and a different one will fit in it still amy not work.
