Only high-end gaming laptops from manufacturers such as Alienware are capable of upgrading their graphics cards.
This model is not capable of doing so. Sorry.
Also, do not leave me a poor rating simply for the fact that this is not the answer you wanted to hear, please.

The video subsystem in Toshiba notebook computers is an integral part of the overall design of the computer. As is the case with most notebook computers designs, it's not possible to upgrade the video subsystem or to add memory to it.

Here is a link to Toshiba's Satellite Support Downloads page: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp. I couldn't locate the model number you posted above there, so you may want to double check it. You can find updated Graphics card drivers for your machine there.

you might be able to commit more shared memory to your video in the BIOS settings. You can't pay $900 for a laptop and then expect it to have high-end options like an independent video card. I know with some Toshiba laptops, they only commit 64 or 32mb of RAM to the video card but you can change this. I think you can give the video card up to 224mb of RAM, so if you check and find that it has a lot less, you should change it in the BIOS. That being said. you should be able to play Halo 2 on it, but COD4 is probably not going to work unless you bring down the video resolution and features.
that's why gamers still play on desktops.

This may or may not be of some help. http://www.laptopka.com/2006/04/12/remove-replace-video-board/
Usually with laptops you have to replace the mobo but looks like there may be a possibility (slim one) that the card can be replaced, however I could not find anything as far as parts to get to replace just the video card so its looking more and more like the whole mobo would need to be replaced.
