How to Upgrade Laptop Hardware

http://live.pirillo.com/ - Jane Doe (sorry, we don't know what your name is!) is having some problems upgrading her laptop: she has taken it apart several times and doesn't understand how she could upgrade the components inside the laptop.

Generally, it's difficult to upgrade a laptop. Outside of the RAM, PCMCIA, and USB, laptops do not have the expandability of desktops. Indeed, in you're trying to upgrade your video card or processor you may find that they are directly soldered into the motherboard and are not replaceable.

What you can do is pick up a PCMCIA card to replace your current onboard soundcard, and you may want to pick up a USB device that fits your needs (such as an external hard drive).

So you have any suggestions for upgrading a laptop?
