Default Laptop help please...

I have 2 questions:
1) Does anybody know how to find out its processor socket (Model: Sony Vaio PCG-FX109K or FX190K in USA)

2) Is it possible to upgrade the graphics, I know you can in top XPS laptops but is there way for example of putting some graphics card in that car bus that you find in the side of the laptop?

Thanks

1. If you have the laptop download cpu-z.
2. No way of upgrading video card.

I think that is the socket that runs the Pentium 3 and Celeron processors.

yes, it has a Pentium III 850mhz, so it can't really be upgraded then.

BGA2, if I remembr is an intergrated CPU socket, making it not upgradable. As for the GPU, you can't really. It's an intergrated CPU.
