No.

Only a very few top end laptops actually have separate graphics modules, and they are usually only "upgradeable" between whatever options are offered by the maker at the time.

Laptops don't have a "graphics card" like a desktop does (as you would realise by the size, nowhere to fit one)

Possibly. Depends how much you presently have fitted.

From memory it will take 2 x 128 MB modules, you would have to discard the 32 MB module already in there. It should have 32 MB "on motherboard" Max was 288 MB from memory (32 on board, plus 2 x 128)

Might be harder to find older RAM these days for the notebook. Try Kingston?

Of course, new laptops that will exceed the capabilities of the upgraded machine you have sell for $600 or so, I'd take that into account. Why put money into this one...

Because I have no choice. I don't make enough money to save up for one and the money I DO have has to be spent on other expenses. Maybe when I get a better job, I'll do it, but for now, I have to live with this one (or of course, I could go on ebay, but I'm sure even the ones there are too expensive).

Now I have another question: Can I put more memory in to the hard drive/give my computer a new and larger hard drive?

you cant add memory to a current hard drive but you could always buy an external Hard drive. Costs vary depending on make, quality, and size. Id suggest looking on Newegg for one.

You can get a larger hard drive, but I don't know what capacity the computer can handle give it's age. You're going to at least probably have to flash the BIOS. I'd recommend doing that first before buying a hard drive since a BIOS flash has the potential to turn a laptop into a door stop.
