The only laptop GPU I'm aware of that you can upgrade are those found in uber gaming laptops. And even then, it's not worth it when the going price is $800 for the top end model that barely competes with a $250 desktop card.

It would also be helpful to know which laptop you have.

Yeah, no, there's no way you can upgrade.

Yeah as above you can't upgrade that mate, better off looking at a new laptop.

I have heard of USB PCIE slots you can get for any laptop, something like this, but seems like a lot of effort.
