Ok I have an Inspiron e1505. When I bought it, it only came with an Intel Integrated Video Card, an ATI Mobility Radeon x1300(<- the one I have), and an ATI Mobility Radeon x1400. Now when I see it it can come with a NVIDIA GeForceGo 7300 TurboCache. I am wondering if my laptop, which did not originally offer that, will be able to use it...
My mobo is 0XD720 as far as I know.

well the answer is no laptop grahics cards can not be replaced or upgraded at all

the grahpics chips are physicall built into the motherboards and the card is not inderpendant
this means they can not be replaced or upgraded

yes i do understand that one of the toshiba's could be upgraded but on the chance that this person actually had one is extreamly rare so i didnt bother to explain it

99.5% of all laptops can not be upgraded ( graphics card wise )

so as a general accepted fact laptops can not be upgraded besides memeory (RAM), hard drive and possably a CPU. (also including upgrade cards)
