I am wanting to upgrade my Laptop, so could I upgrade the Processor, Graphics, and BootDrive on a Laptop? And also does it help the speed of a game if I get 8GB and a SSD card? People keep saying just buy a new computer, but I know that I am just wondering what can I get to where I can play some games.

Buy new computer. For gaming CPU is very poor and GPU even worse. SSD does not help for games on that computer.

Did you see what I read next I said that I know I need to buy I new one but I don't have the money so I need something to boost my laptop until I have enough money.

Not much you can boost. More memory or SSD helps very little on games. CPU and GPU upgrades are nearly impossible.

So I suggest you save your "boosting money" for new computer.

I understand. Sadly there are no decent upgrade paths available for laptop so there is not much we can do.

All laptops will play Quake 3 , Wolfenstein, and Medal of Honor...

 

If your hardware won't play Battlefield 1, look for an older Battlefield it will play....1942, etc....
