Default upgrading laptops

got a HP Pavilion DV4000

128 mb graphics card
(dont worry about the harddrive, its plenty big for what i do, and i got a 320 gig external)
pentium M 1.73 ghz processor.

i like to game online WoW (if you must know), and its allready warned me that my specs arent enough to run it ideally.

well i didnt care to much about that, and it runs fine imo, but how can i make things run faster?

my biggest question, i've allready upgraded my ram last year, but now i believe that video card has to go, is there any way i can get to that, or do i have to go desktop to get major customizable options?

again, thank you all for your help.

Video cards can NOT be upgraded on a laptop. If you got a crappy video card, then you're pretty much stuck with it.
