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

What graphics card is in the imedia 5064


I think as supplied, this PC uses the on-board graphics (built into to the m/b). As this PC is 2nd hand, it may already contain a graphics card.
To fins about your system easily without opening the case you could go to www.piriform.com and download a program "speccy" (free). Run this and it will tell you the details of your system including the graphics card type and detail of the memory. The simple memory can be obtained from Windows > My computer > (right click on) properties if I remember correctly).
Next go here
http://www.wowwiki.com/System_requirements You will find the minimum system requirements for playing WoW. You may find that to upgrade not only the graphics card but also the RAM. If you need and decide to upgrade the graphics card be sure to shoose one that is compatible with your computer with your computer/motherboard. I suspect (http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/forums/1/tech-helproom/69141/packard-bell-imedia-5064-motherboard/) it may be very similar to this one
http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1335#ov but I don't know for certain. This page contains all the details for that motherboard. Note that speccy will give you some detail about your motherboard and memory types required as well.
Depending on which graphics card you decide (this may be helpful http://www.playtool.com/pages/vidtable/table.html ) on you may need to upgrade your power supply (PSU). It's very easy to do this; more difficult is to decide on which PSU to choose. You may need to some research (as with the graphics cards and memory). There is some good second hand stuff - PSUs graphics cards memory often available through ebay but caveat emptor - read listings very thoroughly and carefully, don't pay too much (set your limit before you look).

What is Bluecell


The video card that you choose for your system largely depends on your requirements. If you use applications that are very heavy on the graphics, then you should consider a PCI express video card with SLI capabilities. However, if the most graphics intensive thing you plan on doing on your computer is watching a usb 3.0 pci cardDVD movie, then you don't really need one that's very powerful, any standard one should PCI Express card do. In many cases, you might even be able to make do with the card that came with your system.
If you're interested in purchasing a new video card, then it's important that you examine the current capabilities of your motherboard. usb 3.0 pci express card The older motherboards support only one graphics card at a time through an AGP slot. Motherboards today do not support AGP cards. Today, the new standard is PCI express, usb 3.0 pci card which has recently replaced AGP as the favoured graphics

Which graphic card is suitable for my compaq presario sg1138il pc?


The type of graphics card you need depends upon the programs you are using.
For example if you only use your computer for simple wprd processing, e-mails etc. then you only need a low end graphics card.
If you have a high performance computer and you play graphics intensive video games that renders realistic images, then you need a high end graphics card and these cards will have large video RAM (memory).
There are a large range of graphics cards on the market, I suggest you Google search for graphics cards that matches your programs and application requirements.
If your model computer has an AGP expansion slot, then make sure the graphics cards are AGP cards.

My graphic card wont support the games with it's requirement also


Have you tried replacing your monitor or lcd with a higher resolution or configuration? If not please do so. Because even thou you have a high graphics card but your monitor or lcd does not support your hardware requirements, it won't work at all. Try using an LCD with HDMI port or a higher model of LCD that are applicable in watching videos or playing games.

Your card or driver does not support directx9.0c 3D acceleration


Time for a video card upgrade. You are now two (almost 3) generations of video cards behind.If you are truly referring to a VooDoo card, you definitely need to upgrade to something newer. If the game you are trying to play says you must have a DirectX 9.0c compatible card, you will need to get a new video card. The good news is that just about any card you can buy new would be at least DirectX 9c compatible. The bad news is, I am guessing your card is PCI card. That being the case, you will be hard pressed to find a new one for sale.

What video card would be compatable with a insignia computer model d300?


I would recommend any of the Nvidia or ATI video cards that come in the PCI format. Your computer only has PCI slots. These are the older slot types, so your options will be limited for brand new cards, but there's still plenty out there. As long as the slot type is PCI and the chipset is a major manufacturer, it should work with no problem. Do NOT get any video card that says "PCI Express" or "PCI-X" - they won't fit.

Pc restarting when running games.


Its probably the graphic card. Its overheating, cant tell you right now if its the graphic core or the memories on it. I need to know the type of the graphic card and the PC case. Maybe you need to add only another fan to your case. You should download GPU-Z and watch the core temperature.

If you got any question, let me know.

No display from VGA adapter.


The graphics card won't initialize unless the system passes certain internal checks; most of the time this is caused by the wrong RAM configuration. Make sure the RAM you are using is the right type of RAM for your system; in some cases the system board will still power up with the wrong RAM installed. Then check monitor connection to make sure there are no bent pins on the connector. Furthermore, I'd even check to see if the system boots without any RAM installed.

UPGRADE GRAPHICS CARD


Hey,

From the looks of your system, Its a pentium D 915 CPU, with integrated graphics.
From the spec sheets, you should be able to upgrade to even an 8800 series, although that would require you to purchase a higher wattage power supply.
My recommendation is:
if you want graphics grunt for later model games, (i.e shooters like CoD4) the card you need (without needing a new PSU) would be the 8600gt. This is an excellent card and does not require external power.
If you want a cost-effective option, go with the 8500gt or an ati (amd) something equivalent. They arent the fastest cards out, but they will do a better job than the integrated graphics.

Hope that helps,
Sincerely,

Graphic card on sony pcg-gr15


There is no replacement for this as the graphics controller is onboard, as in built into the motherboard and not a seperate dedicated graphics card. You can try updating the driver but i would firstly go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager>click '+' sign on display adapters, select the adapter and right click and select uninstall. Restart pc and the graphics driver will be reinstalled. If no change, then it could be that the lcd or the back lighting is faulty and requires a qualified repairer.
