The graphics card is inserted into the socket of the motherboard and recorded a pair of screws, but to get there, you will need to disassemble the laptop.
To do this, turn off the power, remove the battery and the top cover above the keyboard, hiding the screws of the mountings and the screen hinges. Unscrew the screws you opened the keyboard.

Loosen the other connectors and Unscrew the screws holding the top frame of the housing. Flip the remaining part of the laptop and remove the screws from the back side around the perimeter, not forgetting the screw located under the battery.

Apply a little effort at slow to install the new device. This is necessary in order for the two sides of the cards are entered into the slot. Secure the new video card with some screws.
