The mainboard can be swapped for one with ATI video.  The cost is about $120.  You may also need  a new heatsink assembly (most of the time, the model that ships with non-integrated video uses a larger heatsink and or larger or faster-turning fan).

Hi jay03893 ,

I am Sudipta S from Dell Social Media and Communities team.

Regarding the question you asked, I'm afraid you would not be able to upgrade the graphics card incase the system was purchased with the Onboard/Integreted Graphics Card. We do not recommend upgrading the motherboard on a notebook. This is primarily to avoid any possible incompatibility with other critical system components. Also, the motherboard being a field replaceable unit, one must bear in mind that it is not straightforward to remove & replace, unlike the RAM or hard drive. In fact, changing the motherboard is almost equivalent to replacing the entire system. 

Regards,

I am looking to  order a new motherboard  for my dell inspiron  n5010 . Water spilled on it and could not be repaired. I have checked the dell site but I cant find it to order. Can you kindly assist with telling me where and how I can get a new motherboard.  I must however state that  I am quite disappointed that just a small spill could destroy the motherboard  of a laptop that is suppose to have newer and better technology.

If you do, be sure you order the next system with a 3-year warranty.  You could well find out that though the name on the outside is different, the actual manufacturer is the same -- the company that built this system for Dell supplies just about every other "name" brand notebook manufacturer as well.
