The vast majority of modern discrete notebook GPUs are soldered to the motherboard which makes them non-modular. They're only modular in the very highest end of desktop replacements and mobile workstations via MXM. Even if you found a discrete and modular GPU that fit inside your notebook and plugs into your motherboard, you'd also have to consider its power usage and heat generation.

The answer is "No." It is time for you to upgrade.
