Upgrade laptop video card

my laptop model Asus x83vb-2. it's my understanding this laptop being that it has a descrete graphics adapter can be upgraded.... but to what? Asus laptop support has no idea and they dont make mobile cards. they advised to to call nvdia. then nvdia advised to contact the laptop manufacturer Asus. has anybody actually upgraded the card, cpu and memory on one of these things. thanks for all your help great site :)
