Question about HP Pavilion dv9000z Notebook
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
