G5 gpu location

There is no graphics card in a G5 Mac. It's built into the motherboard. Not really replaceable, without many hours of work, plus the board costs more than the machine is worth these days.

Where is my graphic card located

This computer does not ship with a graphics card. It contains a GPU, as all standard PC's do.

Can i change the vid card in NV53A57u

You would be correct Sir!
The weakest link of a laptop is it's graphics 'engine'.

This solution will be rather lengthy. Advising in advance because I want you to understand, without being bored, or your eyes glassing over. Lol!

The Gateway NV53A57u Notebook PC, uses an ATI Radeon HD4250

To digress for a moment;
Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

The Integrated Circuit, or chipset, used for graphics, is a graphics chipset, or G.P.U.,
Graphics Processing Unit,

A GPU is mounted to a small circuit board. The small circuit board is an interface, whereby the GPU can be mounted;

1) Directly to the motherboard.
2) To a graphics(Video) adapter card. Commonly referred to as a graphics (Video) card.

The GPU can also be part of the motherboard chipset.
Of which the ATI Radeon HD4250 is.

It is part of the AMD M880G motherboard chipset, which your Gateway NV53A57u Notebook uses.




Therefore no sir. You would have to change the motherboard chipset, and that ain't happenin'.

All is not lost, however. I offer the following for your perusal;

There is a 'kit' that you can use to use a Desktop graphics (Video) card.

Option EC2C.

You need a decent PCI-Express graphics/video card, and a desktop Power Supply,

Take away from the mobility of a laptop? Yes.
Can't just take it to the park, and use it.

You could put everything in a small carrying box, with fan cooling, and plug it into power, when you arrive at where you are going, however.

Just a thought. An expert briefly posted the TechRadarComponents website for this graphics card adapter, on FixYa in the past, and I have been 'rolling' with it.

My Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop's screen flashes when i am playing starcraft 2. it has a strange smell, and i cleaned the computer recently, what could the problem be?

Depending on whether or not the game is patched it can kill your GPU. The strange smell was probably the card getting very hot. Do you know the model of GPU/Graphics card?

My laptop has integrated GPU..can it be upgraded with a grahics card??

Most laptop computers cannot have the graphics upgraded, as there is no space inside and the original GPU is built into the mainboard, meaning that there is no slot for additional GPU... certain laptops can have more memory added to the GPU but thats about it.

I have a mobo C51PVGM-GB that I would like to upgrade the video card and not use the one built into the Mobo.

You are upgrading the graphics.
Instead of using Integrated Graphics, you will be using a dedicated graphics card.

Integrated Graphics is also referred to as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered to the motherboard.

It is not a video (Graphics) card.

A dedicated graphics adapter card has it's own GPU, and graphics ram memory.

Information on the Gateway 4006136R - Nvidia GeForce 6150 AM2 uBTX 1394 motherboard,

Viewing this small photo of the motherboard, the Orange long slot you see is a PCI Express x16 slot.

1) The Northbridge chip is a C51PVG
2) The Southbridge chip is an MCP51

(CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another name is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short)

3) Made by ECS
4) Has an AM2 processor socket on the motherboard, for AMD processors.

Can you replace a video drive on my laptop

I assume you mean video card instead of video drive. The nvidia GPU ( Graphics Processing Unit ) is built into your m/board. The only way to upgrade from say 256mb to 512mb is a m/board replacement. If you have a GPU failure ie failed graphics out put forstly test to see if the output to external monitor works - do that by pluging and external monitor into the vga port located on the l/h side up near the power on button - if there is no putput or it has coloured vertical lines your graphics chip is failing. the only rectification is m/board replacement.
Hp has just recently trashed a huge number of defective m/boards in the pavilion dv2000/dv6000/dv9000 & presario v3000 v6000 range and had them remanufactured to correct this GPU failure
