Hello and welcome to the forums You can't upgrade the VGA of your laptop,only few laptops(some Sager/AW models) allow VGA upgrading.
Maziar is correct; very few notebook models carry upgradable slots, and even on the ones that do, support for newer cards is spotty. A motherboard with an Intel GPU is most certainly not going to be upgradable.
