Thats depends on what the laptop graphics can support also you cannot replace the graphics card in a laptop only a desktop supports this, you cannot play high res games on laptops because they can't support the demand put on them, you will be able to watch just about any movie you want to, if you feel that you want more graphics then you have to buy a graphics accelerator card that plugs into the USB port, you also have to upgrade the memory to support this.


hope this helps


kind regards

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

Video seems to be going out in my Acer Aspire 5520-5334 laptop. Can i replace just the card or do i have to replace to whole motherboard?


Graphics cards on laptops generally are a part of the motherboard. It may not be the graphics card however in your case. It could be a screen or cable. If there are lines on the screen / no video / or distorted colors, it will require a technician to open the laptop and perform evasive work. If it is truly a bad graphics card, then the best option may be to purchase a different laptop altogether.

On my laptop the screen has an orange tint to it


1.make sure your graphic card is securely fitted and if power is required to the card,then check the power connector is securly fitted and inserted


2.try changing your monitors lead from the v.g.a connector to the d.v.i connector at the back of the card,the v.g.a. is a blue connector and the d.v.i. is a white connector,and the d.v.i requires a d.v.i to v.g.a converter


3.where applicable install any monitor drivers however these are rarely required


4.run the direct x diagnostic utility,press start>run>type dxdiag >press enter,then go to the display tab and run the "test direct 3d" test


5.finally check all cables are securly fitted
if after these tests and tasks you still experience problems then change the graphics card and run the tests again,if you experience more problems then a new video/graphic card is required


hope this helps

I nned to increase the possibilities of grafic card for working with programs that have image treatment and others and need a better grafic card


In your case, you can upgrade your system ram or memory bu not the graphic card.Upgrading your system ram or memory will boost your application loading and performance. Example your memory right is 1GB so make it 3GB by purchasing a 2GB ram. You will see the difference but do not expect to for the graphics just for faster loading and better performance can only give your memory. Have a nice day.

yes you chould see iti but i advice to check if is onboard the graphic card or is dedicated,from another point of view the motherboard is a litlle difficult piece to change in laptop most people just buy other.
if the graphic card is onboard then you cannot change because you will need to cut it out so is a no can do .
if the graphic card is dedicated maybe you can change it if you find a card for this type .

My acer 5315 laptop just went off one day still has power but no picture to screen or external monitor.guess the graphic card has gone. but dont know how to fix it could you help


Since, there is no display even when an external monitor is connected to the Notebook, this confirms that the issue is with graphics card.
As with most of the Notebook, the graphics card installed in this notebook is also integrated on the Motherboard and is not user replaceable. In this case, the complete motherboard is changed. So, it's required to contact any service center to get it replaced without damaging any other internal components.

Hp pavilion zd8000, has a problem with the graphic card; the fan went dead that on top of graphic card, so when I turn system on, after a few Minutes the screen start to lost image. Do I need to replace...


if the computer works fine for the first few minutes without the fan spinning, you probably only need to replace the fan. when the image is fading, do you get lots of flashy colors? that's mostly a sign of graphics overheating...

I am having a problem with my nvidia graphics card i believe


Go to NVIDIA control panel (Right Click on Windows Desktop)
Set and check ALL your Paramaters to match with your Hardware
reduce resolution (if required) to get the quality you ask for.
If you use CRT screen be aware of magnetic fields (Speakers, UPS, motors) interferences: try moving screen or disturbances.
Pls let me know if working.

Upgrading the Graphics Card? and a RAM question...


I'm sorry but the graphics card/chip in a laptop is built onto the motherboard and cannot be changed,
RAM: there are "two" types of ram in a PC system ram and video ram, I think what you have increased is the system memory, I don't think you have an option to increace your video RAM, perhaps you should consider trading in the laptop for one which is better suited to your requirements
