well basically, selling gfxs for laptops is rare, and wat gplpark92 said.
i think on your laptop, there is no pci-e slot(probably for higher end laptops)

If the NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 is integrated, then no, it can't be upgraded. But if it's an AGP or PCIe type graphics card, then you may be able to upgrade if Compaq offers better graphics solutions. But it will have to be sent in to Compaq for the replacement to be done.
