I know nothing about video cards... All I know is cables!

How do I upgrade it? Do I send it out or what?

Thanks!

the first thing is to find a compatible vid card for ur laptop, use ur laptop model to search www.froogle.com and find some matches, the card will come w/intructions, u can do it urself easily .........i always wanted to build a laptop till i saw the prices for parts
