Sorry, but no. There isn't any type of external video card for these, and the internal card is integrated into the motherboard.

Can i upgrade my graphic card of dell inspiron n4030


It depends on what you would like to use it for. It's not feasible to upgrade the internal graphics card but you can purchase USB graphics cards to use.
The limitation of external cards is the data transfer rate of the USB port. Your model of laptop has USB 2.0 which would be the slowest of the possible external graphics options.
Essentially, you can purchase USB video adapters but they really just allow you to connect an additional monitor. Here is an example:

About Satellite R630 - 13U laptop, my father bought it but it has no video card like nvidia etc, only built in, is it possible to put a video card?


The only way to upgrade video on laptops is usually through an external USB video device. If you were hoping to upgrade to latest video to play games you are likely out of luck. Your machine has a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD that will use up to 1.5 gig of memory. You should get reasonable performance from that.

How to solve my 3D graphic since my RAM was 4G... sometimes my laptop lag when i playing latest games... should i buy a graphic card for it or any suggestion how to boost my 3D perfomance...


For most laptops, you cannot replace/upgrade the graphics adapter ("video card").

Nor can you replace/upgrade the CPU.

How much RAM in your laptop?
Buy more, to "maximize" the amount of RAM that your motherboard will support.

I have a dell c610 laptop, and want to put in a 3d graphics card, what do you recommend and can it be replaced?


because this is a laptop you can only upgrade a couple things, and video is not one of them. You can upgrade memory or install a bigger hard drive but that is all the options you get.
Sorry

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Video / graphics upgrade


Laptops use graphics chips that are soldered onto the motherboard. Because of space constraints in portable computers, this is the only practical design. Since the graphics chip is built in to the computer, it cannot be upgraded. This is one advantage of desktop computers, which typically use PCI or AGP slots that accept video card upgrades. While graphics chips in laptops may not be quite as high-performance as the video cards in desktop models, companies such as ATI and Nvidia have developed portable graphics chips that deliver impressive 2D and 3D performance."

Please i am having Gateway Laptop 600 ygr with graphic card ATI Radeon 7500. I want to improve its 3d performance by running grahics more than 64MB or improving with acceleratedx. Thanks frank


Unfortunately with this model laptop the graphics card is not upgradeable. If you are attempting to do 3D graphics you will want a higher end laptop with a higher end processor and video card. For high end laptops that will perform much better for this use I would check out http://www.alienware.com/ for their line of higher end laptops.
