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.

How to change graphic card?


firstly you need to determine if it does have a dedicated graphics card or if the graphics are on-board, as in the case of the latter you cannot change the graphics card and this means it could require a new motherboard or processor (in the case where graphics may be integrated into the processor) or both and even if it does have dedicated graphics card they are not easy to find replacements for, and will require taking the laptop apart, there are places you can send them to be repaired in a lab and this is probably your best option if it is actually broke, if you were hoping to just upgrade your existing card then it is highly unlikely you will find one that fits as even dedicated cards are not universal and specific to the make and model of the laptop itself, in rare cases where upgrade options were available for the laptop when new you may find one with much searching, but as a general rule of thumb if a laptops graphics goes kaput then it is usually time to throw it away and buy a new one, or if this is not an option then sending it away to a lab to have the components replaced is generally the only option, i have in the past found people offering this service on ebay, hope this helps

My sony vgn-c240e not fillng the screen with windows 7. 1024x768 is the max available resolution when my notebook requiresa 1280x800 for optimum resolution.


You will need to update via the Microsoft update setting making sure you tick the box in the optional downloads to get the graphics driver you need after this is done you can then get a higher resolution to make windows 7 display fit the whole screen if this does not happen then you will need to the support website for the Sony vaio this link here is where you start to get the correct drivers you need for your display if the Microsoft updates didn't fix your graphics problem http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computing/vaio/index.aspx?l=en_GB

Are there any video cards that you can use to upgrade the 530g? I have seen posts that the power supply is an issue. If it is possible is it a matter of installing the card and disabling the onboard...


Your pc has a special graphics expansion port - AGP x8

You can insert any graphics cards which will fit the port. Check carefully, there are quite a few different types of graphics port.

Once inserted, boot up the PC, and insert the disk you should get with the card, it will have all the relevant drivers.

There should be no need to alter the bios settings, the new card will be identified by the boot process.

If power supply does become an issue, you will need to upgrade the PSU (Power Supply Unit).

Shame on Sony!

Sony Vaio game lag only using fraction of graphics card


Not quiet sure what you mean by its only using a fraction of your graphics card?

If you go in to device manager it will tell you what graphics card you have.

What game is it you are trying to play?

If it is lagging then it suggest that your card isnt powerfull enough to cope with the game.

Have you tried dropping the display settings in the game to see if that helps?
