Question about Graphics Cards
There is a slot to the right of my laptop i guess its a pci card slot if not please let me know as i do not have any idea about it. what hardware can i add through that slot
Without knowing the make and model of your laptop, I can not say with 100% certainty.
However this is a common place that laptop manufacturers put what is called a PCMCIA slot. This serves much the same function as a PCI slot does in a Desktop unit with a couple of exceptions. the cards that fit into this slot are completely housed in a metal sheath (To meet FCC regulations about interference) and the cards are typically smaller, and are "Hotswappable" which means they can be removed and replaced in the laptop without powering down and rebooting.
THere are Many adapters that can use this slot from Ethernet cards, to WiFI adapters, and even external Audio cards.
PCMCIA cards come in "Type I" and "Type II" varieties. All PCMCIA slots are type I compatable but before you buy a type II card be sure to check for compatability.
Depending on your manufacturers spec's for THAT model laptop you may have as few as on slot or many stacked one on top of each other.
Hope this helps you,

First, you need to know the slot of the motherboard for your graphic card.
Previous slot for the motherboard and graphic card was AGP Slot but the newest is PCI-E (PCI Express).
After determining the slot of your motherboard, you may now buy any graphic card as long as it has the same slot with your motherboard.
Hope this helps you a lot.
