Default Laptop Videocard Upgrade?

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop and I was wondering, is it possible to upgrade the video card on this laptop?

this is a good comparison of desktop gpu and laptop gpu, they are the same thing ultimately, just in different forms

damn... well in that case i dont think it is, your best luck would be to find a picture of your motherboard for that exact model (with that type of graphics configuration) or take yours apart and take a picture of the motherboard, what you are looking for is a white slot that resembles a pci-e slot, but much smaller,

that is a picture of a laptop gpu, its much smaller, and the port is that white slot, the biggest problem with this is getting your cooling to work, and if you have one of these slots or not

So if it is upgradeable, you wouldn't happen to have any recommendations or guides handy would you?
