Change graphics card vostro 1710


Some laptops do have a graphics card that is mounted to the motherboard, with it's gold plated contact pins.
The pins slide into an expansion slot on a circuit board, that mounts to the motherboard.

Removable, therefore deemed may be upgradable.

Most however are like Chris stated, and are mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Scroll down, click on the Red ->
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Shows you the IR 650 BGA Rework Station at work, but more importantly shows you the BGA surface mount; Solder Balls, and Copper Pads.

IF, your Dell uses Integrated Graphics, the motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_X3100

Means the G.P.U. is integrated in the Intel GM965 motherboard chipset.

Nope. No upgrading of that baby.

IF, your motherboard chipset is an Intel PM965 chipset, it uses Discreet Graphics through a PCI Express bus,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

Means the laptop comes with an Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics chipset,

http://www.dell.com/us/en/bpi/notebooks/vostronb_1710/pd.aspx?refid=vostronb_1710&s=bpi

Here we can see the Dell Vostro 1700 series of Notebook PC's, uses a separate graphics (Video) card, (IF your laptop came with this option)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-DY445-VOSTRO-1700-INSPIRON-1720-nVidia-GeForce-8600M-GT-Video-Card-256Mb-/120955693339?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1c2985691b

The green circuit board of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M, you can barely see.
The aluminum metal plate on top of it, is attached to the copper Cooling Tube, then to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

[Heat is drawn from the graphics chipset {GPU} on the graphics card, to the large aluminum metal plate. The plate absorbs the heat, then transfers the heat to the copper Cooling Tube.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flattened copper pipe, sealed on both ends, and filled with Nitrogen gas.
The Cooling Tube absorbs the heat from the plate, then transfers the heat up to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

The finned Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's thin fins. Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry away heat from the fins of the finned Heatsink ]

This is what the Nvidia GeForce 8600M looks like, not attached to the cooling assembly,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ASUS-NVIDIA-GeForce-8600M-GT-8600mgt-512-MB-512M-DDR2-MXM-II-Graphic-Card-f-F8SV-/330701665242?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4cff5af3da

You can see plainly that this is a graphics/video card.
Four mounting holes, and gold plated contact pins on the bottom.

The actual term is graphics ADAPTER card. The Brownish/Red square you see in the middle/bottom, is the graphics chipset.

[ The actual G.P.U. or Graphics Processing Unit, is the black chipset in the middle of that brownish/red square, has Nvidia in white on it, and white characters on the bottom -
***-***-XX.
X's used because I can't read it.
The brownish/red square around the GPU is a small circuit board.

ALL GPU's have to have a small circuit board, in order to mount to the motherboard, or a graphics adapter card. Also for electrically connecting the GPU to a motherboard, or graphics adapter card.

GPU,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

In conclusion;
1) Depends on what Intel motherboard chipset you have, right off the bat.
Intel GM965 = No
Intel PM965 = Maybe

2) Intel PM965? Then your laptop should have the above Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, with graphics adapter card, and cooling assembly.

2A) Does that mean you can change the GeForce 8600M GT?
Maybe. You need a BGA Rework machine, and better Nvidia GeForce graphics chipset. You're talking Ka-Ching here. $$$$$$$$$$

Probably have to stay within the same Fabrication Technology in nm.
(nm = NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter)
The 8600M GT is 80nm fab technology.
So is the 8700M GT.
When you get to the 8800M GTS, it changes to 65nm.

That's the architectural size. Doesn't state all the technological features that changed with it. (80nm to 65nm)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_8M_.288xxxM.29_series

Means your BIOS program probably won't handle it, and doubt there is a BIOS upgrade for it.

3) Better graphics adapter card, and graphics chipset?
Again, that IMHO would only be an Nvidia GeForce 8700M GT, and NOT worth the trouble, believe me.

So that's it? No chance of upgrading your graphics? No, not so.

HOW MUCH DDR2 MEMORY FOR LAPTOP


Referring to a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 series of Notebook PC:

According to the Service Manual;

1) The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory depends on the Northbridge chipset used.
(System Controller. Intel)

If it is an Intel GM965 chipset, the maximum total amount is 4GigaByte. (4GB)
If it is an Intel GL960 chipset, the maximum total amount is 2GB.

Northbridge chipset (Or System Controller)

The Northbridge chipset was aptly named so, because of the general location of the chipset on the motherboard.
It is generally located under the Processor.

(The Southbridge chipset is located further 'South' on the motherboard)

The Northbridge chipset handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-Speed graphics.

High-speed graphics being AGP or PCI-Express.
Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card installed into a PCI slot is NOT high-speed graphics.

This is handled by the Southbridge chipset.
The Southbridge chipset handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

Motherboard diagram;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

Information on the Northbridge (computing),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_%28computing%29


Information on the Intel GM965, and GL960 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_Mobile_chipsets

Look under the heading Chipset at GL960.
Looking across you can see that the chipset supports;

1) DDR2 Sdram that is either 533MegaHertz, or 677MHz. (SO-DIMM ram memory for laptops)
2) Supports up to 3GB

[ Your laptop has TWO ram memory slots. The primary, or Main ram memory slot, (Outside edge), and the Optional ram memory slot, (Inside towards the middle)

There are No 1.5GB ram memory modules. ('Stick')
This is why 2GB is the maximum with the Intel GL960 chipset.

Install one 2GB ram memory module in the Main ram memory compartment,
OR,
Install one 1GB ram memory module, in the main ram memory compartment, and one 1GB ram memory module in the Optional ram memory compartment ]


Now look under the Chipset heading at GM965.
1) Supports DDR2 Sdram at either 533MHz, or 677MHz.
2) Supports up to 4GB.

How to know what Northbridge (System Controller) chipset your laptop uses?
Use CPU-Z from CPUID.com

Information on CPU-Z on Wikipedia,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z


CPU-Z,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z/versions-history.html

If you need guidance in downloading, installing, and using CPU-Z, hit me up in a Comment.

Download page for the free Service Manual, for the Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 series of Notebook PC's,

http://www.tim.id.au/blog/tims-laptop-service-manuals/#toc-toshiba

Scroll down with your eyes to the heading - Satellite Pro
Go across, and click on - L300

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on - L300 - it may take up to 30 seconds before you will see the first page come up.
It may also take additional time for the file to fully download.

Have questions I'm right here.

{Now you know Why, How, and Where.
You can tell your friends about your new found knowledge}

How do I find my graphics card on acer laptop 4720z and change settings to best play games


* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

please rate this advice if it helps...tc! :)
