Re: better graphic card for my laptop
Hello there. First you would start with what you are able to use. do you havethe ability to use pci-e (express) if so then does it go to pci-x16? if not then go with the agp options. not used much anymore but they work if your motherboard can support it. the last ditch effort is to go with a simple pci graphics card. Then you would consider your price range. there are some very good deals on www.pricewatch.com, and www.newegg.com . if you don't want to find yourself back here in a year then I would suggest a card that has at least 512Mb ram. nvidia, and ati are the chip makers you want to look for, always check out the reviews for the products and sellers as well.

I suggest you if you are playing game in desktop/laptop then first graphic card installed then you play. Because normal card not proper graphic supported so external graphic card used then you play game. Or mother board graphic driver also installed in PC/Laptop.
It would be better to install a graphic card. As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC. Also try some troubleshooting steps given here; Stop un-necessary background running services Update all drivers Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.
While starting to install or play any game, firstly you must check and compare the compatibilities of the game with your laptop PC.If the game requires some higher features that aren't availed in your laptop, then advice is not to install that game or it could lead to bad working and reduced performance of your laptop.You must check and compare the requirements of the game with ur laptop. Main Points to check are- *RAM required and available. *Graphics requirement. If they all are present, then try some game booster to enable high performance gaming..
Quick answer : No. This laptop is not upgradable as far as graphics, few are in fact. You can still play older games (2006 & before) If you need better graphics, you need a computer equipped with nvidia or ati graphics. If want to play all the newest games you need a higher-end machine such as alienware or equivalent.
Hey there, this is a common error on fifa 11 when trying to run the game from a laptop or even a desktop that doesn't have a graphics card that supports "shader model 3" or better. Your graphics card just doesn't have the requirements to play the game. You can try to update you graphic's card drivers and see if that works and even get the newest version of Direct X and try again, see if that does the trick! good luck!
Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.
Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.
Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.
If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.
Laptops were'nt really designed to play games on, even though they are getting better with proceesing speeds and memory, the graphics on laptops even though good dont always allow for 3d rendering, so if the game has to use it the graphics will throw a error message, if gaming is your thing you would be better off building a pc rather than have a laptop, its highly upgradable and you can choose what spec ie cpu speed, memory, and graphic capabilities, laptops are in my opinion a space saving sollution, not a gaming device.
You could try to upgrade the driver for the graphics card it somtimes works, to do that you will have to go to my computer and right click, go to properties and into device manager, find your video card and right click, choose update driver, use the internet option. it should find an updated driver for you be patient it take a few minutes to find. hope this helps.
