1. you cannot exchange a laptop graphics card
2. you CAN add ram, but it would have to be the same type.
3. what specifications does your laptop have at the moment?

what laptop is it? Just use google and find the specs from the manufacturers website. If you don't know you could always take off the ram and see what it says.

you cannot get a video card upgrade for a laptop. and that laptop should be able to play wolfenstein

all it takes to play that game is: 600 MHz CPU, 128 MB RAM, 32 MB OpenGL graphics card, 56.6k Modem/LAN
