Shared memory generally means built-in video.
Laptops do not have PCI/AGP/PCIexpress card slots like a desktop has.
Laptops that have seperate video cards generally have proprietary methods of attaching the video card to the motherboard.

And look at the motherboard you can see the there is no place for a video card.

So the answer is no you can not upgrade the video.
