Hi I have owned my laptop for around 2 months now. An some of my games keep crashing or stuttering for example:

The Sims 2 - just freezes and have to restart laptop.

Football Manger 2005 - During watching a match the graphics stutter.

Is it possible to upgrade my graphics card and how much will it cost?

Specs of laptop:
Pentium 4 3.20
512 Ram
60GB Hard Drive
32MB Graphics Card (ATI Radeon 7000)
Windows XP SP2

If any other info is need please ask. :)

There are a few very high spec laptops with changeable graphics chips, the rest are incorporated into the motherboard and are non upgradable.
Let us know what make and model you've got, it may be possible to allocate more memory to graphics in the BIOS, but that's a bit of a long shot.

The model of the Laptop is

Toshiba A60-101.

Well the A60 manual says:-
"Video RAM,up to 128Mb Integrated solution with main memory"
So it looks as if the RAM allocated to graphics can be increased in the BIOS, if the manual isn't clear on how to do this try e-mailing Toshiba.
