    I think larrynet, was sggesting to buy a new Geforce 9800 card

    Only problem is, you have a laptop !
    Where the video card is built in to the motherboard.
    Threfore: You cannot update the physical card.

    There should be some way I can take it out and replace it with the new card.

    Sorry your larrynet, you posted 3 times in a row !
    In future use edit, when replying to yourself, it does the same thing anyway.

    My understanding is the entire motherboard has sound/video and stacks of other things, incorported into the board.

    It is Not possible

    Only things like Ram, CPU and possible net/modem can be replaced. And that's it.
