    I have a HP Pavilion dv2000 notebook, it has an integrated nVIDIA GeForce Go 6150 and would like to know if I can upgrade it to a newer graphics card :) thanks.

    nope, the video card is built into the motherboard. you can't upgrade it.

    one way to improve the performance of the video card with this notebook is to enter the bios upon startup. go into the bios and change the amount of dedicated memory for the video card from 64mb to 128mb. it is 64mb by default. it will also be good to upgrade to 2gb of ram.
