Upgrade the motherboard is the only way to get more PCI-E slots. And no there is no way to put a PCI-E slot on a laptop.

You will need a new motherboard as SneakyCyber said and the black slots next to the ram are more ram slots for upgrades.

Thanks matt I missed the questions on the Memory slotts. That board looks familiar I bet you have a Pentium 4 right? If so its likely a socket 478 which boards with more then one PCI-E are Impossible for new ones (that I can find).
