Laptop computers are harder to install components in than the desktop equivalents. A graphics card can be installed in a Toshiba laptop, but you need to completely disassemble the laptop. The graphics card is located under the motherboard; therefore you need to remove most of the laptop components to access the card. Be sure to touch any non-painted metal that is connected to ground to avoid harming your computer with an electrostatic discharge.

Yes some cards available for notebook pc, but I am not confirm about their cost and availability. Visit this http://www.villagetronic.com/vidock2/index.html

As I have seen your configuration of your laptop it is not good for high end games. But you can use/ try this if you want to upgrade this one.
