Question about Acer AOpen MX 400-A (32 MB) Graphic Card
Just want to find out if it is possible to upgrade the graphics card or increase the memory allocated to the graphics card on a Acer 5611AWLI with a Intel GMA 950 g.card
You cannot upgrade the graphics card on your laptop, however you can sometimes adjust the amount of graphics memory allocated. This setting, if your computer is capable, is normally found in the BIOS. On rare occasions it is located in the Display properties (which, in turn, can be accessed from the Control Panel). If you can't find a setting to tweak in either of these locations, your computer cannot adjust the allocation of video memory.

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)
