your current integrated video card is only 64MB video memory. i suggest you upgrade to at least 128MB video memory or higher. check at your local computer store for the compatible AGP 8x video graphics card. happy shopping :)

How to play high graphics games with my 128mb video card


This is not possible you would need to upgrade your gfx card, Over clocking it could help but as its so small anyway it would just over-heat and produce problems
Replacing it is best option.

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.

Can NBA2k10 (PC) work for Nvidia 8200M G (128mb) (integrated)?


It can play it, but for a good rendering you should put the game at the lowest settings and at low resolution. Save a few bucks more and buy a separate video card.

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.

Game does not support your video card


Good morning! you have to upgrade / replace your VGA card to a higher memory capacity, if your VGA card is only 64MB then it cannot support the game you want to play, increase it to 128MB or 256MB. best regards

Graphics card driver for Sony Vaio VGN-FZ410E


Sorry but most laptops come with video on board and not a separate video card to upgrade to another card while not impossible would be very expansive. you would have to get a desktop computer with separate video card installed to play your games
please post rating thanks

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.
