You cannot add more ram to your graphic card, If you want more ram for optimum system performance I recommend buying a new ATI, or NVIDIA graphic card to replace the old one. they both have the best cards on the market and visit their site at NVIDIA or ATI.com for more cards information and where to buy them.
REMEMBER TO PURCHASE THE CORRECT BOARD TYPE FOR YOUR SYSTEM. IF YOU HAVE PCI BUY PCI CARD, AGP=AGP CARD AND PCI-EXPRESS= PCI-XPRESS CARD
I recommend 256MB RAM for PCI systems, 512MB RAM for AGP systems and 1GB RAM for PCI-EXPRESS systems.

If I want to add more memory beyond the 8gb max from the MFR, will it work?


You cannot add more RAM that the recommended max. specified by the manufacture.
If you could install more than it 8Gb, either the laptop won't work OR it cannot access more than 8Gb of RAM.

Using Windows XP with a terrible, terrible video card. Will not go above 640x480 resolution. Only has 8mb video ram and Windows won't let me raise past that. Was wondering if there was any way to force...


if windows does not have the correct driver for the graphics card the resolution may be stuck at a "safe" setting, try downloading and installing a graphics driver, if the graphics card is very old and its maximum resolution actually is 640x480 there is no way other than replacing the card to achieve a higher resolution

I have the mother board of compaq p4d5oo its has the power and running on also but shows no display reasons


Hi- Sorry to hear your having a problem.

Try this
1 - make sure the monitor cable is in and tight and plugged into the power with no wobble.
2 - check the monitor on another pc
3- if on board video make sure the video is 'on' - if a used board sometimes the on board is shut off to allow better communication with an add on card.
4- if an add on card - pull and put it in another slot
5- try another add on video card
6 - try your video card in another machine
7 - take it to staples for a 'tune up' and see what they say - they offer free tune ups and they would soon discover the problem for you and if it is a card they will gladly sell you a replacement,

There is also the ram - please remove all but one stick of ram and try booting the pc - if it works and the monitor works you will need to adjust your ram to something that works.

I hope this works for you and gets you going in the right direction.
Please rate me and let us know if this works.
Thanks

    Graphics problem while trying to play games


    You may not have sufficient video RAM.
    You may be able to increase the size of the video RAM from the BIOS setting.
    If this doesn't work then the video card cannot handle the games graphics and there is no way you can upgrade/change the graphics card as it is part of the motherboard.
    If you want to play realistic graphics/high resolution games, then get a desktop computer, you can configure/setup these computers with greater computer power, memory and high performance graphics cards.

    Video card


    Just curious but why did you want to add a new video card?


    One suggestion would be to check the bios and see what the shared memory size of your onboard video card is set at. And possibly increase the setting to 128mb if goes that high (allot of newer computers go even higher) 128mb is more than enough video ram for most pc functions including windows Aero support for windows vista but if your into gamming and want more video power for 3d games then of course installing a new video card would defiantly be the way to go.

    And if that is the case all I need is your model number and I will look up your motherboard and let you know what type and model cards fit in that case without modifications

    Can you tell me how much ram i can add to my laptop (toshiba satelite L30-101)


    I don't know what a toshiba is, but if it has a windows operating system it will adjust the amount automatically. it stands for Random Access Memory and it requires just enough to run your system and programs installed. If it is too low Windows will adjust it automatically, if it's too high it will do the same. the RAM varies accordingly to each computer. If you go messing with that dude, RAM is going to be the least of your worries. Ha Ha.

    Playing Call of duty 4 on vista


    could try to add ram. laptops rarely have good video cards for gaming, and its prolly using system ram instead of dedicated video ram. If its using system ram, the reaction time will always be slower than if it had a suficient amount of dedicated video ram.

    This model laptop will not allow you to add a video card to it. The video card and all of its components are part of the Laptop motherboard already.

    You can, however upgrade your memory from the 1GB up to a total of 2GB, but your current configuration is 2x512mb chips.

    So right now you have 2 memory slots available but they are being used by the 2 512mb chips. You will have to remove them and replace them with 2 1gb chips. This can be fairly pricey.

    Here is a link to your computer specs
