The video card on a laptop is built-in on the motherboard and cannot be swapped to another video card. You maybe able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS video settings BUT it will reduce your main memory by the corresponding amount because the video uses shared RAM.
Depends on what kind of hardware you have
2 gb ram is "ok" if you use windows XP but if you have Vista or Windows 7 you should have a minimum of 4gb ram.
if you have a Dual core processor you are ok, if you have a p4 or p3 you dont want to waste money on a new graphics card because it will not help you get better games, your processor and memory will slow you down instead.
So my advice is, if you have a OK computer, go ahead with buying a new graphics card
if you computer is old and slow, DONT buy a new card! put your money on +2gb ram instead (cheap,and gives you more benefits) or maybe buy an "upgrade package" with new motherboard-memory-processor.
in that case you need to open the tower or CPU and reseat RAM and graphic card if you have 1 and then try to start the computer it should work and if you still get beeps. and can try to plug memory card 1 by 1 if you have more than 1 memory card if the computer starts with 1 memory card then it could be the issue with the memory card if not then the slot on the motherboard is gone bad and the motherboard needs to be replaced or repaired
First try re-seating the memory boards. Try removing all memory boards except for dimm1 to test for bad memory chip, then replace dimm1 with other one(s) just to be sure. If problem persists, try reseating the video card and if still no go, remove all other add-in cards (except video card) and try to boot. If ok, add the cards back one at a time to determine the problem device. I had similar problem and cleared up with a new video card and another time it was a poorly seated modem card. Sometimes you also need to reset the BIOS by unplugging the power, and placing the jumper cap for your BIOS Reset or CMOS Clear (usually marked on motherboard) from 1-2 pins to 2-3 for a few seconds then return to pins 1-2 before pc restart. (pin nos. could be reversed depending on the model).
Your motherboard can handle a P4 2.8Ghz chip with 1MB cache or you could go to the P4 3.06Ghz chip with 512KB cache. And either one would give you a bit of a performance improvement. I think the bigger question would be: is there any place locally where you could get a screamin' deal on a motherboard/CPU package that would still support the memory your currently have?
A motherboard replacement would not require you go purchase a new retail MS OS. It would require re-activation of your current product though which could entail a toll-free phone call to Microsoft and your existing product key.
According to this list on GigaBytes homepage http://www.giga-byte.dk/Support/Motherboard/CPUSupport_Model.aspx?ProductID=1406 You'll be fine for quite a while, until the 478-socket processors are available in stores. Your motherboard supports much faster CPU's than your current Celeron, so if money is short upgrade our processor. But if you want to secure your motherboard for future upgrades, then I suggest you get one that support the newer dual-core processors, and PCI-Express instead of AGP. Allthough you can still get pretty good GFX-Cards on the AGP-standard the PCI-E standard is the future.
