Graphics upgrade for lenovo 3000 K100

It has the Intel G33/31 chipset and i tried to upgrade the graphics with an Nvidia 8800 PCI card but it doesn't work. I installed a 600w power supply to accomodate an upgrade but how do i know whats compatible? Will the Radeon graphic cards work?

    My problem turned out to be that I had the monitor DVI connector connected to the graphics card (as the card only has a DVI connector). I found an adapter for the DVI to VGA and hooked up the monitor using the VGA connector and it works. The previous 'expert' said I had to connect a power connector to the graphics card (NVIDIA 8800) but that is incorrect as the edge connector on the graphics card is an SLI connector, not a power connection.

Did you install the drivers that came with the radeon card... if not your going to have to go to the manufaturers website and get it for the version of windows you have.

I wnt buy laptop but idk which1 bter and suitable for my software? any1 can help me pls?


For me easy;

1) The Dell Inspiron 15R i5 Notebook PC comes with an Intel i5 processor, model 2410M (2.3GigaHertz frequency rate),

It uses DDR3 at 1066MHz, (Why would you?), or DDR3 at 1333MHz, and up to 8GB's of it.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.2832_nm.29_3

It has Intel HD Graphics 3000 graphics built-in. (It's in the Intel Core i5 processor. It is Integrated Graphics)

Ummm, no.

2) The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5173 Notebook PC, comes with an Intel Core i5 also.

Model 2450M Intel Core i5 processor;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Core_i5_microprocessors#.22Sandy_Bridge.22_.2832_nm.29_3

It comes with an Nvidia GeForce GT525M graphics chipset.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_500M_.285xxM.29_series

A LOT better than the Intel HD Graphics 3000 GPU (Graphics Processing Unit), above.

From what I can see it is a graphics chipset soldered to the motherboard,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-L755-L755D-L750-L750D/dismantle-laptop-3.htm

Click on the photo in Step 27. Bottom view of motherboard.
Look at the black Fan Assembly, and the copper curved Cooling Tube.

Go over to the far left of the Cooling Tube, to the rectangular silvery shape. Has 4 black screws in it. (This metal plate sits on top of the Processor)

In-between this rectangular metal plate, and the bottom of the motherboard, is the Nvidia graphics chipset.

Square dark green shape (Circuit board), with a smaller dark square shape in it. (GPU)

Means it isn't a graphics adapter card, and therefore not upgradeable.

Uses DDR3 Sdram (SO-DIMM) 1333MHz ram memory, and up to 8GB.

3) Lenovo G470 Notebook PC has an Intel Core i5, Model 2450M also.
UP to 8GB's of DDR3 Sdram (SO-DIMM) ram memory, at 1333Megahertz, too.

Intel HD Graphics 3000 is used also. (Integrated Graphics)

Ummm, no.

My choice?
The Toshiba Satellite L755-S5173.

Better graphics.

One of the things you ALWAYS look at for a laptop, because 95 percent of the time you cannot upgrade it.

(A LOT of laptop manufacturers state - Graphics Card, when the truth is it is not a replaceable graphics adapter card, as used in a desktop computer )

This means you are stuck with the graphics of the laptop, until you obtain a better one.

Does my d845gvsr motherboard support a 9500GT graphics card?


9500GT Series graphics card uses PCI Express Slot(16X). As for your Mainboard D845GVSR it comes with AGP Slot(4x or 8x). The graphics card slot on your Mainboard AGP will not fit the PCI Express slot for this Nvidia chipset 9500GT Graphics Card. You cannot use the 9500GT Series card for your mainboard.

The highest Nvidia Graphics card that support AGP Slot is the 7300GT Chipset Series.

Hope it helps.

I have intel-945GM express chipset, and i need to play a game that needs shader model 3 please advice


firstly you need to have a pci express graphics card inorder to play new games. Intel chipsets are NOT for playing games!! You should get at least a Nvidia 8600gts or ati 3650 or similar to game properly- presuming that you have a pci express slot. Be warned that if you get a new graphics card dont go by the series eg, 8 series or 9 series- a 8600gts is better than a 9400gt. A nice graphics card for the money is the nvidia 9600gt. Good luck upgrading

Is this video card compatible? w/my pc? how much it cost to install?


bla bla worst thing will be that the grafic card will bottel neck itself and not because of cpu the fsb has to do about that but to instal just plug it in the pci-e slot should do a nice click but put your bare rist on the metal of the computer to ground yourself and remove all power so you dont get a shoking event
