Laptops are usless for playing games. They may play some low quality games but there is really nothing you can do to upgrade a laptop to make it suitable for playing games. If you are planning on playing PC Games, buy a good Desktop Computer.

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! :)

EA Game ''Spore'' - Videocard & Driver Issue


The card does not have the requirements to play the game. You would need to upgrade to a better video card if you want to play this game on your system. Sorry.

Ram upgrade = computer will not load


First check out the RAM you had prior. If it is DDR or DDR2 then it needs to match exactly. If you go to the HP website and type in your model number they can tell you what RAM is compatible. If it matches what you bought and its not working then the RAM is bad and needs to be sent back.
