I have a similar laptop myself (acer aspire 3660wlmi) and my reccomendation would be to upgrade the RAM to the maximum you can (with me thats 2gb) it helps the perfomance a LOT (512mb worked ok but 2gb is much faster)

It is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.

some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.

most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,

but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)


the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)

Need abetter graphic card for acer aspire 5251

in Acer Aspire Series is using Intergrated Graphic Card.
that mean if you wanna Upgrade your Graphic Resolution,
you have to set to a bigger shared memory/RAM for Display Graphic Card/VGA memory from BIOS Setup.
for example if you using RAM 2Gb, and you can make your VGA(Video Graphic Adapter) to 1Gb.
But in My Computer Properties the RAM will Show only 1Gb.
Because another 1Gb of RAM you've use for VGA.
you can check it from dxdiag.
(for opening dxdiag > Click Start > click RUN... > type dxdiag > and Oke/Enter)

Hi, how are you?

Laptop do not use graphics card. The usually have the graphic chip integrated into their motherboards.

There are laptops designed for gaming. Alien Laptops or Asus Laptops are few of them.

So, upgrade to graphics card for laptops... hard.

You can increase performance by upgrading memory.

God Bless You!!!

Hope it helps.

Perform a Windows update first to see if there is a Microsoft update for the card. If there isn't, then go to the Acer website, look up your computer, and see if there's an update for the card there. Also, download the various "custom" updates like Directx to install in the computer from the Windows update site.

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop

Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

Graphic card for acer aspire 1641

HI Denis,

Unfortunately you cannot change the video card an your laptop, you see its built into the motherboard. There are some high end laptops that use a MXM? slotthat it is possible to change cards and even then its still iffy.
the only real hardware changes you can make to your laptop are the battery, the RAM, and the hardrive.
