Graphics card doesn't meet recommended specification

I just purchased an oculus rift, and need to know if I can do anything to make my laptop run with it
everything else apart from the graphics card is compatible, is the only thing to do get a new computer?
when i plug in the HDMI cable, it doesn't get recognised

I use a gaming laptop at the moment: 

ASUS Republic of Gamers FX553 15.6" Gaming Laptop

    With very few exceptions, laptops are not upgradable.The GTX 1050 may work for some of the least demanding titles but generally won't give a good experience. There is nothing you can do except buy a much higher end laptop or get a desktop. Desktops are generally recommended for VR and PC gaming in general as they are almost always upgradable with new graphics cards. They are also substantially cheaper.
