My HP Pavillion dv9000 laptop computer is 3 years old. All seems good until I stream video and it struggles to play the video cleanly. The internet connection is fine and when using other computers it...


No, there aren't any settings that can change graphic resolution on streaming video. However, you can visit the following website to update your drivers for your video card:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
There are two options on the website; option 1 is to fill in the info of your graphics card, and option 2 allows the nVidia website to scan your computer's hardware to find any updates needed. Option 2 is probably the safer route. Continue to follow the instructions until you have updated your graphics card drivers. This should enhance streaming video resolution.

I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

WHEN I TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

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.

HP Pavillion m7755uk How can I upgrade the Graphic Board to a more powerful one for video editing and what PCI slot has it got is it a PCI or PCI-E connection on the motherboard


Hello,

Your Pavillion has 3 PCI slots and 1 PCI-E slot. I would recommend using the PCI-E slot as it is the fastest. Also, for editing I would go with a 1GB PCI-E card as this will give you 1GB of DEDICATED video memory. Once you have the card, it is as simple as putting the card in the PCI-E slot (The shorter slot of the four you will see) and powering the PC on.

Good Luck

I just installed SIMS 3, and it keeps freezing up and crashing. Is my ATI Radeon X600 the problem?


The card is most likely NOt the problem, best thing to do is upgrade the Graphics drivers and other drivers... If that doesnt work...
Check to make sure the Ram is sufficient,
I believe it would be the problem if its a older card, and Sims 3 is a high Polygon game. and Alot of radeon cards Get old quick.. if You really want to play sims 3 Upgrade your Video Card If your running a Crossfire Mother board (Ati only) Buy one of the new Ati cards 4890 i believe is the newest one, Its a great card
If your running a Full compatibility board buy one of the new Nvidia's But before you buy make sure your Computer Supports it :)

What can I safely upgrade to for gaming


0Hi there,

The Pavillion dv4t comes with a choice of specs to meet your needs. As you haven't listed them I will list the Minimum that you will need to run the games, that way, you can check them against what you have and decide if you need to upgrade.

I will list for Sims 3. Even with the basic dv4t you will not need to upgrade to play Sims 2.

Sims 3

Running Vista SP1

CPU (processor speed) - 2.4 Ghz Pentium 4 or Athlon 2400+
RAM (memory) - 2 GB
Video Card (graphics) - 128 MB (Nvidia GeForce Go 6200, ATI Radeon Mobile 9600, or equivalent)
Hard Drive (space for installation) - 6.5 GB and an extra 1.5 GB for custom content.

These are the minimum specs for running on a laptop.

Hope that helps

Want to upgrade graphics card on hp dv9074cl


Generally, the graphics card on most portables is not a upgradable option. Researching on HP spare parts, that appears to be true on this system.
