    Unless your laptop has a dock option with a PCI(-Express) slot, there is no way. In theory, ExpressCard video cards are possible, but AFAIK there are none available.

    i have a dell inspiron 1501 w/ AMD turion64 x2 mobile technology TL50 processor
    and an ATI Radeon Xpress series integrated graphics chip

    i was wondering if there are any good laptop graphics cards
    i dont think i have a pci slot but while looking through my device manager, i found standard enhanced PCI to USB host controller and i was wondering if that can be used for a new graphics card

    I dont think you can upgrade your graphics, as most laptops everything is soldered together. I think I ran across one laptop in my history that you could change the vgs in it. Just have to be knowlegable about it before you buy the laptop, that was my problem when I bought mine.

    Please.. If you had just bothered to look a bit lower, you would have found a thread identical to yours. Don't think that you are unique, use the search feature :)

    Threads merged.
