I purchased a Lenovo E520 back in November 2011. My current resolution is 1366x768. I'm curious if it's possible to upgrade the resolution on my laptop. I'm not very experienced with this so sorry for my wording. I just want my display to be "crisper", higher resolution, possibly 1080p, etc... Thanks for any help anyone may have on this subject.

haha a new graphics card is not going to help your display, and the intel hd 3000, assuming you have 2nd gen core, can easily handle 1080p videos.
Also you can't upgrade your graphics because
1) the GPU is built into the motherboard
2)Most laptops cannot have their GPUs upgraded
You need to buy a new laptop if you want a better graphics card. To improve performance go to power manager and set "Maximum Performance", when you're on AC charger, not battery.
