Question about Acer Computers & Internet
The graphics chip is part of the motherboard on a laptop. It cannot be upgraded and there isn't any expansion slot to accommodate an graphics card. The only thing that may be possible is to increase the video RAM in the BIOS but it will take away some of the main RAM. This is called shared RAM.

In a word, no. Because the graphice are on board the mother board and the only thing you could do is see if there is an upgrade driver that may give you more facillities.

it is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.
some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.
most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,
but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)
the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)
