I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

I dont have graphics card now so i cant play some big games


You won't be able to play bigs games, Usually with the games, it comes with a system min requirement and the min direct x version need to play those games. If you do not meet the min requirement, then you cannot play that game, and you will need not just to upgrade the video card but maybe mem, cpu and direct x to meet the min requirement.

Sometimes smaal rectangle shapes appears all over the screen while working, then we have to switchoff the system to reappear the screen


This a freezing of the system caused by the small memory (Ram memory ) or too many programs running in the same time for the capacity of the Ram ..or the CPU ..or just one faulty program or application ...Freezing the screen can be also a issue of running a program that requires video card resources much larger than available ..You should pay attention on the programs running often when the freezing is happening ..and than search on the internet for minimum requiring resources for running that application ..If the system permits you should upgrade..at least the Ram memory for to avoid this happening ..or use similar application with less needs from the system ..
Another cause can be the system being infected and in this case you should reinstall the operation system ..(this is probably the cause if your system has at least 1G of ram ..and 2G CPU ..cause in this case it is enough to run common application of any kind except complicated video ones..and the cause for freezing is a virus )

Screen with a weird flickering and coloring on Acer 5715Z laptop


To determine if he video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, then power up the external monitor and then the laptop. The video info should automaticall switch to the external monitor. If you see anormal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen, could be the video cable/connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector to the motherboard.
If the video card is faulty and because it is part of the motherboard it is extremely dificult to repair, usually a replacement motherboard is required. This may not be a cost effective solution depending the age of the laptop. You could remove the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB drive.

Not enough video memory


The Inspiron 4100 has a 16MB video card built in to the motherboard. It is not upgradable. It appears that the system doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the program, so you'll have to get a more powerful system to run that application. sorry =(
