Default Laptop question

Hey,

I have recently aquired a laptop, a HP 8135NR Laptop and need to ask a few questions.

Is there anything I can upgrade besides the memory and processor? Mainly the only thing I would want to upgrade is the video card. It is an ATI Xpress 200M IGP 128mb.

Is there any card to replace it and is it possible?

Corey

I very much doubt it, they tend to be soldered to the mobo

Some are replacable, I've seen it done. The only way you'd really know is to open up the laptop and have a look at it, a chore probably best left to a professional since laptops are a lot more complicated to work on than desktops due to their size.
