I doubt it. I have yet to see a true dell (non-true being alien ware) that had upgradeable video cards on their lappys.

From what i've seen online on your computer, things don't look good.

there is no way to upgrade your graphics card. maybe get more ram if you have shared memory. my dell has 256dedicated and up to a gig shared.

Also if you could upgrade your graphics,The main problem would be heat and also power consumption.
