    I actually work for compaq and i know for a fact you cannot upgrade a video card on a note book they are all onboard, which is why laptops are never a good choice if you ever plan on playing games... laptop= word document, desktop=gaming and fun. My opinion laptops are a waist of money unless you travel all the time and need it for business or important school work. Never buy a laptop expecting to game on it even if the ad says it is ment for gaming it is not.
