None. That's an integrated graphics chip with shared system memory. Not many laptops have upgragable graphics, and those are only the top of the line gaming models. If you can give me the whole model number (the CQ50 line has about 50 models in it) I might be able to at least give you an idea of how to get better performance. Look at the label on the bottom. The top line is the model line, the middle number is the serial (don't need that), the last line is what I need.

Yep, integrated. The best you'll be able to do is go into the BIOS, and increase the video memory as far as you can. If you've got the stock 1GB RAM, I'd set it at 512mb, max. It uses system RAM to work.

You can't replace it with something better, or install a second graphics card. The laptop doesn't support it.

Look for "video aperture". Should be on the page of "advanced" settings. Going above 25% of total installed memory may slow the OS response. And going above 256 MB max for any on-board video will not improve its performance.
The "video aperture" is memory taken from the top end of installed memory, dedicated for video use. If a video card is installed, then the "video aperture" can be limited to about 64 MB, as it is only a buffer to keep the video card supplied with data.
