Can I change or upgrade the Video Card on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E?


No Bull, no internal upgrading.

One may be led to think so, due to computer manufacturers just abusing the heck out of their 'Advertising license'.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965,

Graphics Card?


The best way to get current drivers is to go to the manufature website and download them.

Select your OS then under VGA driver download the one that matches your machine.

You can not upgrade a graphics card in this laptop. Your best bet if you play games is to get a desktop computer. Desktop computers are more upgradable than laptops (for the most part).

Can i change the video card on a vaio VGN-NS240E? I have integrated video but would like to upgrade to something that can handle games. Anyone know how?


I'm sorry. It is not possible to upgrade the Inbuilt Video card. However, the Computer is shipped with the Express Card/54 slot. You can contact your nearest favorite dealer to get the Express Card slot supported Video card and install in the Computer. This improves the Graphic performance.

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

Does the videocard of acer aspire5572WXMi upgradable?


Hi,

The video card is built into the motherboard so there is no way to upgrade it. Sorry, you're stuck with playing the games that the card can play.

Hi, when i start a new game in couple of games my display crashes, and shows paralell vertical lines and some brownish background... but the windows is still running in the background, but i can only turn...


Cardinal Rule 1
NEVER PLAY GAMES ON YOU MACHINE....
Cardinal Rule 2
If you insist to play games....go to a galeria and use the games video machine there.....
a few $ spent there will save your laptop....
Laptops are not ment for playing heavy games that require strong graphic card and heavy RAMs...

Can i increase my dedicated memory of my notebook to 128mb or


Dedicated video memory is memory contained on a graphics cards which is separate from the RAM plugged into the motherboard. The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

VIDEO CARDS IN LAPTOPS


Hi there,

I believe your laptop is Aspire 5100.
You CAN'T upgrade your video card, because the video card is on motherboard. it's a chipset.
For custom graphic card, it's too much, you can't just replace it,
you have to have some tools to solder the chipset (you can't solder it by hand) on your motherboard. and if your solder is bad, your laptop won't work properly.

If you want to play game, you should buy desktop, in this you can upgrade your video card (many options).

Sony Vaio VGN CR-220E


Haha!

I had such dreams too with one of my old Vaio. I really wanted to upgrade the processor and graphic chipset. Turns out that the latter is impossible (it was soldered to the motherboard - it wasn't a graphics card, just an all-in-one chip), as for the processor I was able to take it out but I ran into several problems:
1) vaio added electronic components to the motherboard that made higher CPU speeds unachievable even if the motherboard's cipset (VIA) was able to do that.
2) the cpu maker (AMD in my case) kept telling me that their mobile cpu were custom designed for that specific laptop, so new cpu would be incompatible. Also mobile CPUs are, apparently, only sold to laptop makers, unlike OEMs... (eBay but at ur own risk!).
3) When buying a new CPU, u need to check factors such as the number of pins (mobile cpu are much smaller), voltage, current, wattage and heat dissipation (very important, ur current heat sink was designed for ur current cpu).

But maybe things have changed now. In my case, I could only upgrade the RAM and the hard-drive to larger and faster versions, and the difference was quite significant difference. Faster booting and better internet experience.
