Default Need help with Radeon Mobility upgrade

Hi guys, i've been searching everywhere for this and found absolutely nothing on it, if you could help me it would mean a lot.

my card is a
Card name: MOBILITY RADEON 7000 IGP (Omega 2.5.58)
Manufacturer: ATI Technologies Inc. (Omega 2.5.58)
Chip type: MOBILITY RADEON 7000 IGP AGP (0x4437)
DAC type: Internal DAC(400MHz)

and my computer is a
Machine name: TOSHIBA-USER
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition (5.1, Build 2600) Service Pack 1 (2600.xpsp2.030825-2117)
Language: English (Regional Setting: English)
System Manufacturer: TOSHIBA
System Model: Satellite A65
BIOS: Insyde Software MobilePRO BIOS Version 4.20.01
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.80GHz
Memory: 448MB RAM
Page File: 298MB used, 759MB available
Windows Dir: C:\WINDOWS
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0b (4.09.0000.0902)
DX Setup Parameters: Not found
DxDiag Version: 5.03.0001.0902 32bit Unicode


Due to the lack of Hardware T&L and general crappiness of the card I am looking into upgrading it without purchasing a new laptop. I know upgrading just the card us probably not possible (nice false advertising ATI) but if it is I'd like to know how. If not, what is the next step up? processor? Motherboard?, and if so how. Money is not as much of an issue as simply getting it done.

Thanks all

You may be out of luck, since upgrading the graphics is next to impossible and your processor is quiet fast already. The only two things you can easily upgrade are harddisk and RAM, otherwise it has to be a new laptop

^^
alperuzi is right, upgrading graphics are really difficult for laptops right now (with the exception of alienware and dell xps). It sucks that the industry still has not standardized mobile graphic cards yet

You've got a Radeon IGP solution.

IGP solutions share system memory and v-ram, and as such, are NOT removable.

You are out of luck on the upgrade option.
Sorry dude

Does anyone have any pictures of the MR9700 or MR9800 256 mb cards?
How much better/faster does a 256mb MR9700/9800 run compared to the M10?
Would a MR9800 256mb that comes with a Dell laptop be the same size/shape?
I am trying to find out if I can slap a new Video card in this beast.
I know that my Laptop comes with a MR9700 now so it seems that if I could get my hands on one that I could put it in, and unlikely that they changed the shape of the card.
Anyone know where I can buy just the Moblie Card from besides Sager?

Sager 5690
15.4 UXGA 1600x1200
P4 3gig HT (800MHz FSB)
1gig DDR PC3200 [Expandable to 2048 MB]
Ati MR9600 Pro 128mb ~ 128 bit
60gig HD 7200 RPM
WiFi b/g
CDRW/DVD
Dual Batteries 1xSwapDrive

Sager's videocards are soldered onto the motherboard. Only upgrading the entire motherboard would be possible.

Besides, sager will most likely not offer the 9800 but will release a new pci-e based model soonish.
