you can't, the GPU is physically soldered to the motherboard.

Re: How to upgrade video card on T42?

Hi sillyshy,


As lead_org says, you can't upgrade the video card in the T42 itself. But you can add a PCI video card to an attached ThinkPad Dock II. For particular applications like multiple DVI outputs, this could make sense. But if you're after faster gaming performance you're probably better off just getting a new ThinkPad with faster graphics built in.
