Most laptops come with built-in video cards on the motherboard. the only upgradeable or replaceable hardware on laptops are the hard disk and the memory module. (aside from the battery of course)

Can I install graphic card on Acer Aspire 5738Z now ??


Laptops have the graphic card built-in on the motherboard and therefore you cannot install another graphics card. Also there are no expansion slots for installing graphics cards.

It would be better to install a graphic card.
As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC.
Also try some troubleshooting steps given here;
Stop un-necessary background running services
Update all drivers
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus
Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

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

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

Install new dedicated graphics card - Aspire 5738?


No, It's not. As with most low end laptops it is not possible to upgrade the graphics card. Which is a good thing, as most high end cards make the user believe that a laptop is designed for gaming, and they never are. Gaming kills laptops.

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop


Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Expert zone,

By analyzing your Dell laptop model it comes with inbuilt graphics card.So you cant able to replace your graphics card,and also it is not possible to install another internal graphic card.So solution is you can buy and install external USB graphics card.

I think it helps to resolve your laptop issue.If you have any problem regarding this issue leave a feedback we were happy to assist you.

Have a nice day!

Hi i want to install grafics card in my laptop


do you want to install the driver for the card that is already in the Laptop?

Or are you looking to install a new hardware graphics card??
Because this is close to impossible for laptops.

Do you have an expresscard slot? It might be possible to get a card for something like that.
Its not a good idea but Asus introduced a graphics card for laptop expresscard slots.

I dont know what it costs (im sure tho that its way too much)
its called ASUS XG Station and you will be able to plug in a pci-Express graphics card.

The problem is: The Expresscard slot is only 1/16th as fast as the starndard PCI-e graphics port in a desktop computer. so plugging in a nice card will not result in great performance unfortunately.


as I said its possible, but highly inefficient, wouldnt recommend it.

Can i fit a new graphics card


Graphics chips on laptops are usually part of the motherboard and therefore cannot be changed.
Your only choice is to get a new and usually a better laptop.

Most desktop computers can accomodate new graphics cards by installing them in AGP or PCI slots, most modern graphics are AGP type cards.

I need a graphic card


Unfortunately you wont be able to upgrade to a graphics card, as only high end gaming laptops come with a seperate graphics card, most other laptops have only on board graphics,it may help if you install more memory then allow more graphics memory to be used, normally laptops only use 16mb - 32mb of graphic memory, which can be increased, although your on board graphics may not be good enough for modern gaming
