Sorry, you're out of luck. Laptop graphics generally aren't upgradable, except in few high-end gaming laptops like alienware for $3000. Yours isn't an exception either.

No. But somewhat... You can, but with big hassle. You can get a Vidock Take a look at it, maybe you're interested. But you must to Make sure your laptop has a 34mm PCI-E expansion slot though.
