I have a Compaq presario CQ56Z laptop with a ATI mobility Radeon(TM) HD 4250 graphics card. I was thinking about changing it to a ATI 6250 graphics card. What are some ways I can do this without buying a new laptop or replacing the case that it's in?

Hello Artix the artisian;

Your ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics chip is built into the motherboard (IGP).
You don't have a discrete graphics card that can be replaced.

WR2 is correct. You're stuck with it. It could be worse though, you could be stuck with Intel Graphics like so many unlucky schleps are. :sol:
