YOU CAN NOT UPGRADE LAPTOPS. The hardware is specific to the model (the boards and components are CUT specifically to how that model / series is made AND ONLY that model /series).

IF that is the right model THAT IS THE WRONG WINDOWS. Per http://www.dell.com/support/home/us/en/19/product-support/product/studio-xps-16/drivers that should be Windows SEVEN not VISTA, and it is TOO OLD (over 5 years), the hardware parts are all long past life warranty (3 years) and any number of parts would fail 'next'.

You can NOT extend a warranty on a NO LONGER SUPPORTED system, this is a NO LONGER SUPPORTED SYSTEM.

You have a machine, out of date, out of warranty, out of options, and NOT upgradable (except swapping out for more RAM or a larger Hard Drive). All other parts are SOLDERED onto the board / custom cut (GPU) for that case/motherboard/connection/cooling system ONLY. Your only option is to get a NEW laptop, or just 'deal' with this one till one day POOF it just dies.
