I don't believe it is possible with this particular laptop. I know in the past some of the dell laptops have had a Microagp graphics platform that can be upgraded.

Most laptops have the graphics built into the motherboard which makes them impossible to upgrade.

There used to be some PCMCIA video cars that you could use but they were more for using additional monitors than for high powered graphics. I believe there have been some mention of USB video cards but again I think these are just for adding more desktop real estate than for replacing existing built in graphics.

So to answer your question specifically, no I don't think there is an upgradeable option for your particular needs.

Hope this helps.

How to increase my gaming graphics of aspire L310 desktop


Your computer uses the Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000, which is built into your motherboard. Unfortunately, there are no additional drivers for your computer so performance can not be upgraded, in that sense.

What you can do though is increase the screen resolution (on the desktop and in game settings). This should allow for a sharper, clearer image and a better overall gaming experience

Lenovo IdeaCentre k210 57088756 motherboard burnt. Processor is Intel Pentium Dual Core processor E5200. MTM is 53135CU. Any suggestion for a compatible replacement?


There are a huge range of motherboards to choose from. Stick with the well known brands and with the functions that suit your requirements.
My choice of brands are Gigabyte, Intel, MSI.
If you are into gaming and video editing etc. go for a motherboard without a built-in graphics card and purchase a separate high end graphics card.
