    You can (in all laptops): Read the manual, go to parts in said manual (most manuals come with a parts section that shows what parts you can swap for what alternatives), and then replace what you find you want/need to.

    It will boost your FPS, look up what RAM your laptop takes, then search on amazon and buy a larger GB, lets say your laptop comes with 4GB of RAM but can use up to 8GB, since both of your RAM slots have 2GB cards in them, you would either need to buy one 8GB RAM card, or two 4GB RAM cards.

    You buy one from a computer shop, just ask for Ram for laptops, and he will provide you with it, and no, I think only the graphics card improves your FPS

    internet speed has nothing to do with fps.

    how does getting more RAM improve my computer?

    I don't think some of these people actually know what they are talking about... Why would they tell you to buy more RAM then say it does not improve anything?
    Of course getting more RAM is going to increase your FPS. It just depends how much you get, trust me.
