Ok, so I have an HP pavilion dv4230us laptop and my video card is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900. It is pretty bad. When I play counter strike, I lag when being shot at. My ping is usually very good and is around 20. Counter strike doesnt even demand a good graphics card. Is there any way to remove my video card and get a new one in? Im not sure if it is soldered in or if it is removable.

It's intergrated, so there's no need for removing it. Do you know if you have a AGP or PCI-express slot? If so you could easily buy a low end video card and play Source fine.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.

Open the side of your case.
There should be a few white slots, at the top is there a different sized one? If so, how many different slots does it have? 3-PCI-E 2-AGP.

Save for a few very high-end laptops you cannot upgrade graphics on laptops. You're stuck with what you've got.
