Generally, laptops motherboard/video cards are upgraded by replacing the system. The motherboard for that system is proprietary to Alienware and a 3rd party MB will not work. From what I can find so far, Alienware only had 1 MB for that system.

I want to play prince of presia but i don t have graphic card


I assume you mean one of the newer Prince of Persia released in 2008. You will need a graphics card to play this game; there is no way around this. If you have a laptop, there's usually no way to upgrade the graphics card (unless you have an Alienware or other boutique laptop). If you have a desktop, a graphics card upgrade is relatively inexpensive and easy.

I need to have a latest graphics card in my IBM Thinkpad R52. Can I upgrade it or should I go for buying a new laptop instead?


Hi,

I recommend to buy new unit instead of upgrading it!

The old IBM Thinkpad cannot support anymore new graphic cards and the future applications coming and new hardwares.

I have a Alienware Aurora 7500 and it has a Foxconn nforce 590 sli motherboard in it. What can I do to upgrade it or get a manual or learn more about it?


You can go to the Alienware website, now owned by Dell so it can also be accessed thru Dell, and under the support section you should be able to find all system specs, compatible upgrades and any manuals you need. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Please i am having Gateway Laptop 600 ygr with graphic card ATI Radeon 7500. I want to improve its 3d performance by running grahics more than 64MB or improving with acceleratedx. Thanks frank


Unfortunately with this model laptop the graphics card is not upgradeable. If you are attempting to do 3D graphics you will want a higher end laptop with a higher end processor and video card. For high end laptops that will perform much better for this use I would check out http://www.alienware.com/ for their line of higher end laptops.

Can I upgrade to a Graphics card?


Only high-end gaming laptops from manufacturers such as Alienware are capable of upgrading their graphics cards.

This model is not capable of doing so. Sorry.

Also, do not leave me a poor rating simply for the fact that this is not the answer you wanted to hear, please.

Thanks.
