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

Gateway Laptop MC8741 will not turn on. Replaced battery....replaced power cord. Noticed that fan was not working a day prior.


Start taking your laptop apart piece by piece and test it after each removed component:
1. Remove the hard drive and test the laptop.
2. Remove the DVD drive and test the laptop.
3. Remove the wireless card and test the laptop.
4. Unplug the display panel from the motherboard/video card and test the laptop.
etc....
Continue taking it apart until you have only three major components connected: motherboard (with video card), processor, and memory. If you still experience the same problem, most likely it's bad motherboard.
By the way, before you start, try reconnecting the memory module. If you have two modules installed, try removing them one by one and test the laptop with each one separately

LG RD405 MOTHERBOARD PROB.


Before you decide replacing the motherboard, have you determined the fault in the laptop?
I suggest you attach a monitor to the laptop and power up the monitor then bootup the laptop. This will automatically switch the video data to the external monitor. If you don't get a normal Windows image then you could have a faulty video card or faulty memory.
In a laptop the video card uses part of the main RAM (memory), try re-seating the RAM module/s and see if this corrects the problem.
If not you could have faulty RAM module/s, take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test them for you. If these are OK then you definitely have a faulty video chip problem. This is part of the motherboard and the fix is a replacement motherboard.
Replacing the motherboard may not be a cost effective solution, but it depends upon the age of the laptop and the costs of repair.
If you decide to get a new laptop, you can salvage the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB hard drive.

Dvd will not play video only audio


There could be a much simpler fix for this.

First off if they are videos you have downloaded then you may want to continue reading.

There are many formats for videos on-line and some work better than others.

It may be a simple as downloading a codec pack
Some videos may require special codecs as is the cas if any of your videos end in MKV in which case you might also have to install
special codecs

Personally I would try this before te expense of replacing your drive or trying to get another graphics card for a laptop that may not take one.

Only then would I look at other options

Hello I have an HP Pavillioon dv2210 us. It


I contacted hp about this problem since i saw many other models had the same issue and were replaced.. ..this model did not belong to any free replace/free repair lists and a motherboard chanche would've cost 900+€, so i came up with a perfect solution: 1. Place the computer on top of two 2 inch high iron tubes/bricks/anything hard enough and leave a gap between them. 2. Take a sledgehammer and release all of your frustation-caused force, hitting the middle of the laptop and the gap.. 3. Go buy a new laptop and make a double check it is not a hp/compaq product ;)
