I'm afraid you won't be able to do much at all. The laptop isn't going to have upgradeable parts, and with those specs will have trouble running any game

You're out of luck, im afraid. You could probably upgrade the ram, but the CPU/GPU upgrades would be very difficult, if not impossible.

Damn you Kage, you beat me to it

Haha, its not a competition

You'll be able to play older games of course, but that Pentium M won't be up to much, and neither will the Intel chip.
By older games, I mean games like Half Life 1, etc

You cant just pop a better motherboard in there.

You will need a new computer.
