Unless the laptop has onboard graphics, there is no reason why the card can't be changed.

Of course, I am not very knowledgeable with GFX cards, so I can't necessarily tell whether is has onboard graphics or not.

I believe the GFX is integrated into the motherboard so without changing the mohterboard I don't think so. Fabe

I've had a look at the service manual for your laptop, and it would appear that the graphics is integrated on the motherboard so as a consequence it cannot be upgraded.
