Re: Acer 56111AWLMI grahics 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.

I want to upgrade my graphics card for my laptop whats the best one to get

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.

Can arcer laptop graphic card be upgrade

No, your video card cannot be upgraded, it's integrated in the motherboard. The only thing you can do is to assign it more memory.

Can I install new video in my laptop?!!! My compaq presario CQ60 209 tu has integreted video card GMA 4500M. how is it possible? Someone on this site told me to replace my video card!!!

Video cards on laptops are on the motherboard, therefore it is not possible to change the video card, also there are not expansion slots for inserting a graphics card.
The video card usually uses shared memory ie. uses part of the main memory. It is possible to upgrade with more main memory and increase the available video RAM in the BIOS configuration.

Want to update my graphics base score nvidia geforce 7000m asus aspire 5520

I'm assuming this is on a laptop? Upgrades to laptops can be tricky. If you're lucky you can upgrade your RAM and allocate more memory to the video from your bios, but even then the upgrade is minimal. Your video card is actually part of your motherboard, as such you would have to upgrade the entire board to upgrade the video card... and at that point you're better off getting a new laptop.

Stupid anoying grahics card problem

Ok, try this.  Uninstall the PCI gfx card drivers and remove the card.  Reboot.  Go to your Device Manager and disable the integrated card, do not worry about uninstalling it. Shutdown the PC, and then insert the PCI card. Also, make sure in the BIOS that you have integrated gfx disabled.  Then if you can boot with monitor plugged into the PCI card you should be able to reinstall the drivers for that card, and everything should work.  If not, please let me know.  Also, if you downloaded the drivers for the PCI card, try downloading them again as it's possible your download was corrupted.

Problem playing 3d online games

The lag is caused by the grahics card memory. 32 mb is not very much for todays games. I would suggest upgrading to a graphics card with at least 512 mb on it. Hope this helps.

Unable to play the PC game Crysis

AlanChong20, update you're video casr software. The radeon 9200 last update is listed at this link.
The date for the upgrade is Nov. 15, 2006 No more driver update are being made.
If you're game still gives you the same error try lowering the game graphics detail settings. If set to high, bring them down to medium. It very possible you're card does not have enough memory to play the game. The 9200 is a older card. It may be time to upgrade.

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)
