...no. That HDMI is almost certainly an HDMI out, meant to display what is on the laptop on a larger screen. There's no need for video inputs on a laptop since it has it's own screen. Why do you need an external video card? What's wrong with your laptop? Does the internal display adapter not work?

If you really need an external video card for multi monitor support, try TrippLite's USB-DVI adapter Model U244-001-R. You can have 5 of those on one machine if you really need to.
It's not very good at gaming, but my wife does PC tech support from home and has one laptop with four monitors.

If your laptop is lacking an expresscard slot (which it is from what I looked up) and your WiFi adaptor's PCIe slot won't fit the connector from the dock you're SOL. There is no other way for this to work.
