Geforce4 420Go doesn't support WOW

I have a Toshiba 2435 S255 which has a NVIDIA GEFORCE4 420G video card.  The video card won't support  WOW and I don't have the money to get a new laptop.  I've downloaded so many "driver updates" and none seem to work.  Anybody know if there is a way to just upgrade my video card? and if so, how will I know which ones are compatible?  I really appreciate any help.

World of Warcraft requires a 128Mb DirectX 9.0c graphic card. Installing the DirectX 9.0c runtime and a DirectX 9.0c driver will not help to turn your video card to be supported video card for WOW.
Any error message?
I've been able to play it on GeForce 2MX and it obviously isn't 128M"B", DX9 compliant card (in terms of i.e. shading units).
