SOURCE: Qosmio F10 graphics card failure
If you're in the UK you have the law on your side: the Sale of Goods Act protects consumers by requiring goods to be "of merchantable quality". The notorious failure rate of the graphics card on the Toshiba F10 series suggests that this model is faulty by manufacture (have a look on the Toshiba support forums for a few examples in case you need to contact your local Trading Standards Office for support when dealing with Toshiba).
What this means in practice is the machine as sold is not fit for purpose. Don't be fobbed off by "warranty" nonsense either: it is reasonable to expect an expensive laptop to work for seven or eight years, not a mere 12 months. Again, consumer law is on your side. In the first instance your contract is with the retailer, so avoid going direct to Toshiba for as long as you possibly can. Pursue the retailer for a replacement, insisting on your right to be supplied with goods of merchantable quality.
When the original graphics card on the F10 fails, it is replaced by Toshiba service agents with a new motherboard with an integrated Go6600 video card. This puts an extra burden on the battery, reducing its life by 20-25%, so you might push for a replacement battery as well.

Both solutions are wrong. The Dell Inspiron 9400/1705 is a laptop. If you buy a Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for this laptop, you need to buy a Dell Inspiron 9400/E1705 motherboard for a discrete video card. The integrated video is a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The integrated video has the video chipset on the motherboard and the discrete video (GeForce Go 7800) has the video chipset on the video card.

Before upgrading a video card, it's strongly recommended to check the wattage specification of the power supply unit. If the installed power supply unit can cater the need of the newly installed video card then it can be used normally.
You may refer to the user manual of the Computer to check the wattage specification or the Power supply unit(PSU) or directly open the tower to check for the printed value on the PSU itself.
