Does it look like you could take the old one out without a chainsaw or hatchet?
If so I assume you could replace it with another one.
The manufacturer of your laptop can probably provide you with all the technical
data you need. Try their site and otherwise mail their techs.

You want to replace that moloch of a video-card with what?
A quad-head 3Gig videocard? Is it broken then? ;)

Just out of curiosity, what do you need a new card for? Laptops are
mainly meant for business-types so they can drag their 'office' from
one place to another. They weren't designed for gamers who want to
play the top-of-the-line newest games on a train. ;)
( although what businessman would need 128 meg graphics cards
is unclear to me... Maybe a carsalesman with 3d models/flythroughs
on disk )


Anyway, success with your adventure :tazz:
