Are you trying to change the graphics component of a laptop? If so, it's not likely to be possible - there were a limited number of notebooks produced a while ago that tried this but it never took off in any way.

In all but the latest top end gaming notebooks the graphics chip is embedded into the motherboard.

Notebook motherboards are in the main unique to the particular notebook model,not unique to the brand though, OEMs tend to buy the same carcasses and just add CPU, Hard Drive & RAM.

Due to component miniturisation they are not easy to work with. They also tend to be very expensive to replace if you mess things up.

Best to leave well alone
