Usually only the extreme high-end laptops offer upgrades after purchase. If you got a mid-to-low-range your stuck with it.

It depends on the laptop and what graphics options were available for it. Some have built in graphics chips were others have a separate graphics "card" that is attached to the motherboard.

Simply put, 95% of manufactures will not allow you to upgrade your graphics card after you purchase your notebook. Each model is designed to accommodate that specific graphics card, whether it be discrete or integrated.
