Upgrading graphics card in laptop

My question involves my laptop. It is a Toshiba Satellite
A135-S4527. I know that with most laptops there is no way to update graphics
cards since they are a part of the motherboard. I heard that it may be possible with some models. I have some games that I am trying to play (Halo 2, Call of Duty 4), but
there are compatibility issues that I need to resolve before I can play them. My
question is this; Is there a means to update this model's graphics card?

You might be able to commit more shared memory to your video in the BIOS settings. You can't pay $900 for a laptop and then expect it to have high-end options like an independent video card. I know with some Toshiba laptops, they only commit 64 or 32mb of RAM to the video card but you can change this. I think you can give the video card up to 224mb of RAM, so if you check and find that it has a lot less, you should change it in the BIOS. That being said. you should be able to play Halo 2 on it, but COD4 is probably not going to work unless you bring down the video resolution and features.

that's why gamers still play on desktops.

I have a toshiba a135-s4527. is it possible to upgrade the graphics card to 512 mb


No you cannot. Video memory is stuck to the mother board. You can however look into increasing shared memory with your RAM card. However I think the A135 is a piece of **** because the maximum ram you can put into that thing is only 2GB. I tired putting 3GB but the cpu will not boot.

Can i upgarde my toshiba laptop satellite A135-S4527 with graphics card.


Hi,

Sadly laptops' graphics cards can't be upgraded.

The graphics cards in laptops are actually chips that are welded into the main board.

Cheers,
Ed

Need To Upgrade Or Somehow Add A New Graphics Card


There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:

http://www.pcworld.com/article/148909/upgrading_your_laptops_graphics_card.html

However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.

If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.
