Connect an external monitor, press F7 to switch displays. If all is good then the video card is ok.

I would suggest you lower your resolution settings from your video card to your monitor. Possibly they are to high for your monitor to handle. Go into control panel to change your settings at a lower rate and see if it runs any better.

I hope this helps you out if so please leave me some feed back.

This is not a monitor problem.This is a mother board problem, some mother boards are supporting this resolution.For this problem,you have to replace the mother board or put the graphics card on the same mother board.your problem will solve.

This may or may not be of some help. http://www.laptopka.com/2006/04/12/remove-replace-video-board/

Usually with laptops you have to replace the mobo but looks like there may be a possibility (slim one) that the card can be replaced, however I could not find anything as far as parts to get to replace just the video card so its looking more and more like the whole mobo would need to be replaced.

Can i put a graphics card for my intel D915GVWB mother board?


You can not use PCI-EXPRESS graphics cards. Only AGP 2/4X Graphics Cards Supported ( 1.5V Only) You should look for This kind of Graphics cards.

I recommend , You must try changing your Motherboard with processor and buy a graphics card ( powerful one) to play these games. Otherwise You wont enjoy any of those games you mentioned.

n.b : a common PCI-E card has 16x speed where you cannot use more than 4x on your system.

I have an ibm thinkpad t41 laptop i upgraded to a 1gig ram i want to know if the grapics card can be changed or upgraded . I am trying to run 7 wonders game and it freezes up


the graphics cards really cant be upgraded with out major work. The game you want to run needs 512 of dedicated video memory, not shared as a laptop uses.

Hope this helps,

Graphics cards on laptops cannot be changed or upgraded. In order to do this, I believe you have to change out the screen, because graphics cards in laptops are within the screens.

Monitor resolution can't be changed


some 15" monitors do not support 1024 by 768, check your monitor specifications if it does. google on the net with the exact monitor model no. and see if it supports.
