Yes it is possible to upgrade the graphics card in some HP laptops, but I suspect that is not the problem... I wouldn't do the upgrade until I have the system running well.
You have an unusual machine as a 64 bit laptop.
I would not mess with it much until you work out things with HP Tech Support under warranty. Get it right, or ship it back to the nearest HP station for an evaluation.
HP has enough trouble with their desktop 64 bit machines. Perhaps they have not perfected the system on the laptop.
But I would not mess with the system outside HP support during the warranty period.
