Very hard to do. Video memory is USUALLY built into the mother board. You can add SYSTEM memory and this will help with the video. VidTec

Why is the display not working after a BSOD with irql less than or equal error for both the graphics card and the integrated card on motherboard?

Sounds like the integrated video card died. An integrated component can fail, just like an add-on card can. Don't dispair though, it doesn't mean you need to replace your motherboard. You can purchase an add-on card, you will need to know if you can use a PCI or AGP card. You can probably use a PCI card. Most motherboards will automatically disable the integrated video when you insert an add-on card. Be sure to ground yourself to the chassis by touching it before inserting any add-on card. A new display card will range in price, it can be more than a new motherboard, or can cost more.

Yup! So long as the laptop can physically accommodate the card and you've got the drivers for the card and your operating system, the laptop should have no problem with it.

Keep in mind, though, that just because the card works with your laptop is no guarantee that it will talk to your wireless router/access point...
