Default upgrading laptop graphics

my son has a toshiba l10 laptop.
it has integrated graphics on it.
if i should want to upgrade the graphics card, how would i go about it.

it is only a low end laptop, so nothing to expensive.

laptops are not usually upgradeable. you would have to find out if you have expansion slots

well you can buy mobile versions of video cards such as the nvidia 7800 on ebay, but im not sure it would be compatible with your son's laptop or not. but since its low end, forget about it. its not worth the pain
