well im not a laptop person but Im sure 99% of the laptops arn't upgradable on graphics cards. If you get a Geforce 2 it mit even be worse than your current SIS onboard

Yeah, you can change graphics cards in a laptop, but you should have a professional do it since laptops are harder to work on than desktops.

I don't think that card would be much better than what you have so I really wouldn't bother.

if your geforce is an actual desktop card.. then don't bother, that thing isn't going to work on a laptop. Upgrading laptops is very impractical, usually only hard drives, ram, and CPUs can be upgraded.. the rest, well, doesn't usually work out.

I don't think you can switch them... laptop video cards and desktop video cards are not the same.
