the short answer is no. Only laptops with removable graphics card can be upgraded, and your system is doesn't have these slots.

Short answer is no.  If you have an expresscard slot (not sure about that model) you might be able to get an external graphics card dock, not as good as a desktop with a high-end card, but it could speed you up.

The Y560p also has a fixed GPU, which can't be upgraded.

maybe you need to give the fan/vent a clean, it is probably overheating. Install HWinfo32 and check the cpu and gpu temp.

Re: Is it possible to upgrade Graphics Card on Laptop?

i myself need to know this, but i have G-700, is this possible?

Aparently Intel HD 4000 isn't good enough to run Battlefield 4 or other more needing games, (at least with more than 3 FPS). 

i also looked at the laptop on this website, it said it has  mini pci  express slot (but words in different order anyways). 

also, looked at A website (don't remember if it was this one) and G-700 wasn't in the G lists, i dunno why, but for some reason i saw other laptop with G in front of name in other version, like G-### in a B-varient/whatever its called
