Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
I'm trying to find a video card to up grade to improve gaming video for my laptop (Compaq Presario M2000)
How can do this?
Actual video card upgrades for laptops are very rare and unlikely in most laptops out there unless we look to high-end gaming systems from companies such as Alienware. (The first company to incorporate upgradeable video card systems in their laptops.)
I do not believe that you can upgrade the graphics system in your model of laptop. I have reviewed all documentation on HP's website for your model and there is no evidence of any possible upgrades for the video system.
The closest I came to any information relevant to the video system was how to replace it. (They're refering to the LCD screen, however.)
Here is the link to the PDF document containing this information. (This is a document meant primarily for technicians.)
Scroll down to Adobe Acrobat Reader page 128 of the document. You will find section 5.12 ("5.12 Display Assembly") on the page labeled "5-28". This is the section that covers maintenance or replacement of the display system.
The only possible upgrade for the video system would be to increase the amount of memory you are sharing to the video system (often called "frame buffer") through the BIOS settings. If it is possible, increase that number for more texture memory.
But if you do not have much memory to begin with, I would recommend increasing the amount of memory in your system before increasing the frame buffer for your video.
If you are not sure on how to do that, consult the same document for detailed instructions.
