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.

SOURCE: 256 MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7800 for Inspiron 9400/E1705 Card Failu

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.

SOURCE: dell optiplex 210l mini-tower video card upgrade

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.

Unfortunately, you cannot upgrade the internal video card on this system. It is soldered to the motherboard.

Can I upgrade the video card on a Gateway E4300 to work with Shader 3 graphics (Eve Online)? Or do I have to buy a new computer?


You only really need to upgrade the video card and the PSU (most video cards need more power than what most companies like dell and gateway provide.). So no need to buy a new computer.

I am trying to find a video card to upgrade my Dell c610 the card is currently 16Mb. Any suggestions?


I'm sorry to advise you, your Dell is a laptop and laptops have a built-in video chip on the motherboard and it cannot be upgraded or changed.
The video card used shared RAM, ie it uses part of the main RAM module/s, You maybe be able to increase the video RAM size in the BIOS, but this will reduce the main memory, so you might want to upgrade the RAM in the DELL.
You only other alternative is to buy a later model laptop.

If you plan to change the graphics card, then go in for a card that has a lot of dedicated RAM. Not shared. You may be able to do with 2 GB RAM on your PC. Ask the dealer specifically.

Laptops are not very upgradeable you cannot add a graphics card to it becuse the graphics it has are built in and there is nowhere to plug one in like on a desktop.

Im trying to fix up my wife's Dell Inspiron B130 instead of buying a new computer. what is the best processor, and video card upgrade i can do?


You don't want to upgrade the cpu. As for the video card it can't be changed as its build into the laptop motherboard.

I would highly recommend that you instead upgrade the ram memory on the laptop since it will give you a bigger performance increase than a new cpu or video card.

The machine only has 256MB of ram, get atleast 512MB or 1024 /1gb of ram and it will work much better.

Video / graphics upgrade


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."

Dell inspiron 1300 Video card upgrade


Sorry you cannot upgrade the graphics on your laptop according to the articles i looked up.
You should call DELL. I think the display card is part of the mother board on your computer. In this case, you cannot change it. In some models you can add some memory to the display card, but this may not make the card faster. Higher amounts of memory allows for more resolution and colours.
