I have a toshiba a15-s157 pc and want to play halo. Graphics is pretty bad on it. Someone else had the same problem and you suggestion was to change the amount of ram committed to the video by changing the bios. I am in the bios page and do not see any setting that would change this - I don't know anything about the Bios screen I am just going by your suggestion to another person. Can you tell me how to give the video card more memory?
If you add more memory to your computer it will allocate more memory to your video. But if your laptop is dual channel capable, you should install a matched pair. This will make you laptop run in dual channel. Which will give you significantly better performance. Don't pay extra for special dual channel memory. this is a gimmick, as long as both sticks are a matched pair. It will run in dual channel. But they must be the same brand. Crucial.com will scan your computer and recommend the best choices. If it will handle two 1 gig sticks that would be your best choice. if it comes with ddr pc 2100 it will probably be able to use ddr pc 2700 That celeron processor needs all the help it can get.

Re: how to change ram setting to video card
Hi, the only form that the memory of video increases is dynamically, and does it taking memory of Ram's quantity that you possess in your machine, that is to say your alone machine it grows even 1GB if this it is the maximum of memory it was taking the maximum of memory of video, alone like that since there does not exist another way of doing it, it makes it dynamically the firmware of the machine.

New hinges are gonna cost you more than the laptop's worth. Used hinges you can buy off of eBay - not always available since the hinges in this entire series have been breaking since the day they were sold. Ain't a pretty picture, for sure.
hello, Did you try going in BIOS and disbale the onboard card there and then try it? also install the utility that came with pcmcia card to manage that card.
though you should not have to even disable the onboard card for the other one to work.
just as a note if a card utility is installed by default that utility is managing that card and doesn't let windows manage it or even see in windows wireless section.
Your card has the correct drivers installed, but that's not enough Windows XP has native support for WiFi. Just visit
www.toshiba.com and go to Products & Services, select Portables and then on
the left hand side click Support, then choose Tech Support Center, choose
your model of laptop in the list boxes and voila, a list of all Toshiba
drivers, choose the WiFi software and install.
You may not have sufficient video RAM.
You may be able to increase the size of the video RAM from the BIOS setting.
If this doesn't work then the video card cannot handle the games graphics and there is no way you can upgrade/change the graphics card as it is part of the motherboard.
If you want to play realistic graphics/high resolution games, then get a desktop computer, you can configure/setup these computers with greater computer power, memory and high performance graphics cards.
you might be able to commit more shared memory to your video in the BIOS settings. You can't pay $900 for a laptop and then expect it to have high-end options like an independent video card. I know with some Toshiba laptops, they only commit 64 or 32mb of RAM to the video card but you can change this. I think you can give the video card up to 224mb of RAM, so if you check and find that it has a lot less, you should change it in the BIOS. That being said. you should be able to play Halo 2 on it, but COD4 is probably not going to work unless you bring down the video resolution and features.
It does not appear that this laptop has a media slot for you to put your memory card into. So you can use the USB cable that came with the camera - but I find that it is always very slow, and uses up the camera's battery pretty quick.
So you may be better off getting a USB media reader. you'd remove the memory card from the camera, put it into the slot in the reader, and plug the reader into a USB port. In My Computer you'd see a new drive pop up, and you could click on the DCIM folder, and then the 100XXXXX (where XXXXX is the name brand of the camera, or some portion of it) folder, and you can then cut and paste your pictures to the computer. If you Cut instead of Copy, it deletes the pictures from the media, so that when you put it back in the camera, it is blank and ready to take more pics.
