Hi,

I would like to do a hardware upgrade of my NVidia graphics card for my Samsung X30 / NX30 laptop.

My current graphics card:
Geforce FX Go5200 32M/64M

My laptop specification (Samsung X30 (nx30tp5p94/suk) PC Notebook) :

My graphics card is now too old, and does not have enough memory and speed.

Questions:
1. Can I upgrade the FX Go 5200 on my Samsung X30? Is the graphics card embedded or pluggable?
2. If the answer to 1) is 'yes', what are my upgrade options?
3. If the answer to 1) is 'no', are there any other laternatives for me, such as changing the motherboard?

Thanks!

Henrik
