Question about Apple MacBook Mac Notebook
My MBP has gone crazy, how can i know if it is related to the recent MBP Graphics Chips Failing?
What are the symptoms of this failure?
Flickering screen, solid horizontal or diagonal lines of light, start up but no screen. Connect another display to the DVI port, if you get a signal, the display is toast, if not- the GPU is. APPLECARE?

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)
