Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E Questions

I have recently received this laptop from my brother and the graphics on this thing aren't that great. So... what I want to know is, Can I go buy a better graphics card and put it in/install it myself? If you need to know the specs, here they are:

OS: Windows Vista Home Premium SP 2
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T7100 @ 1.80GHz 1.80 GHZ
RAM: 3.00GB
System Type: 32-bit OS

GFX
Accelerator In Use: Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family
Total Memory: 3061MB
Processor Speed: 1795 MHZ
Processor: x86 family 6 Model 15 Stepping 13

And I believe it is an integrated card. I also believe it has 1x express slot.

I know the laptop is NOT meant for gaming, and I could possibly damage the laptop by playing games on it. But The games I want to play don't require such high graphics. But as of now, one game I play lags because of the graphics card.

Thanks for your help! Let me know if you need to know anymore information about the computer!

Sorry no.

Unlike desktops you can't upgrade the video of 99.999% of laptops made.
