Laptops use graphics chips that are soldered onto the motherboard. Because of space constraints in portable computers, this is the only practical design. Since the graphics chip is built in to the computer, it cannot be upgraded. This is one advantage of desktop computers, which typically use PCI or AGP slots that accept video card upgrades. While graphics chips in laptops may not be quite as high-performance as the video cards in desktop models, companies such as ATI and Nvidia have developed portable graphics chips that deliver impressive 2D and 3D performance."

But if you are looking for graphics, go to this page:

How can i change the video card in a toshiba satellite A205-S5852? what is the proscedure? is it even possible? please help!!


This laptop has integrated GMA 950 graphics (onboard graphics chip). This is embedded int he motherboard and cannot be changed. Very few laptops have separate graphics cards.

If the graphics chip has failed (usually caused by excess heat) then replacing the motherboard is the only solution)

Sims 3 crashes


Hi. Well that is obvious if the memory as well as the virtual memory drops below the required level. Your VGA settings (Graphic Adapter) might also making the game crash. It is a good thing to disable AVG temporarily while you play the game. (Please let me know your System's specifications as well. Like RAM size, VGA size, Processor Speed and Hard Drive Capacity - Both free and used capacity. If you have default specs for the Dell I6400 no need to include). Otherwise it will use the memory and virtual memory to scan the activities of the game.
You have to keep some vacant area in your System Partition (In which you have install the Operating System). Virtual memory page file is 1.5 x the size of RAM. But you can increase the size. But you have to have a faster hard drive as well because it will be used more when you increase it. The other option is to upgrade your RAM (installing an additional RAM if the PC supports). Most of the modern games require way too high performance PCs. Most of the time RAM and VGA.
To increase the Virtual Memory:
  1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Properties.
  2. Click on Advanced tab.
  3. Click on Settings under the category, Performance.
  4. Click on Advanced.
  5. Click on Change under Virtual Memory.
  6. Select a free Partition (Which had more than the size x 1.5 of your RAM)
  7. Select the option System Managed size if you do not wish to do it manually. If you want to configure manually, select the Custom size option and enter the size which I mentioned before in BOTH the boxes.
  8. Then click on SET.
  9. You may be asked to Reboot the machine. Do so if asked to.
  10. Then play he game.
  11. If possible please upgrade your RAM.
Sims 3 System Requirements are as follows:
  • FOR WINDOWS XP

  1. 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1 GB RAM (512 should be enough however)
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
  4. The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
  5. Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
  6. This one is very important: At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games.
  • FOR WINDOWS VISTA

  1. 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1.5 GB RAM
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (not enough)
  4. Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  6. For computers using built-in graphics chipsets under Windows, the game requires at least:
  • Intel Integrated Chipset, GMA 3-Series or above
  • 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent
  • 0.5 GB additional RAM

  • FOR MAC OS X
  1. Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard or higher
  2. Intel Core Duo Processor
  3. 2 GB RAM
  4. ATI X1600 or Nvidia 7300 GT with 128 MB of Video RAM, or Intel Integrated GMA X3100.
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  • This game will not run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Mac systems, or the GMA 950 class of integrated video cards.
Windows Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series FX 5900, FX 5950 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 9300, 9400, 9500, 9600, 9800 G100, GT 120, GT 130, GTS 150 GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 280, GTX 285, GTX 295 ATI Radeon™ series 9500, 9600, 9800 X300, X600, X700, X800, X850 X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950 2400, 2600, 2900 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870 4850, 4870
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series, GMA 4-Series
Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly.
Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance.
The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista. MAC OS X Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series 7300, 7600 8600, 8800 9400M, 9600M GT GT 120, GT 130 ATI Radeon™ series X1600, X1900 2400, 2600 3870 4850, 4870 Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series.
So make sure to meet at least the minimum requirements.
Enjoy Gaming.

Sorry, No. Integrated means it's built into the motherboard. This is typical because it's so highly integrated with the display.

Extended monitor resolution issues with gma 950 inspiron 6400 e1505


I've ran into similar problems with monitors before. Turns out that some monitors need their own driver installed in order to work with the video card, and, ?guess what?, they don't come with them. I usually find them at the manufacturer's site or driverguide.com Hope this helps, if not get back to me with the make and model and I'll do some research.
