comanighttrain is right. Your laptop's GPU cannot be upgraded.

It is usually possible to replace a laptop hard drive, if that is what you are asking. Doing so will not, however, allow you to upgrade the laptop's GPU (video card). In addition, the reasons for upgrading a hard drive and upgrading a GPU are different. You won't receive the same benefits from upgrading your hard drive that you were hoping to get by upgrading your GPU.
