Good afternoon, Yan!
Wish I could give you better news, but unfortunately, the video card is a part of the motherboard and not replaceable.

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?


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.

Thinkpad t20 s video not working

This may sound silly but it is often overlooked by many people......Have you changed your T.V channel to AV? There is usualy av1 and av2 options. Try these and let me know if you have any success or not.

Adding a monitor to ibm thinkpad using ubuntu

When you connext an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor then power up the laptop. The video infomation should automatically divert to the extermal monitor. You can toggle between the external monitor and the LCD screen by pressinf the blue Fn key + F7 key.
If you cannot get an image on the external monitor, then it is likely the video card is faulty and you can fix it by replacing the motherboard, but what is the point when the screen is broken also.

This Notebook doesn't come with abuilt in wireless , so you need to get a wireless adapter for this if you want to make it work wirelessly you can get this one from Linksys WPC54G or WUSB54GC. By the way this is the complete specs of your laptop

Sorry, but no. There isn't any type of external video card for these, and the internal card is integrated into the motherboard.

IBM T20 2647 loaded with Microsoft XP pro

you should be able to right click on your desktop and select properties and on the settings tab select the screen resolution to atleast 800 x 600, if you cannot and only 640 x 480 is available, the the driver may be corrupt for you graphics card. Go to the link below and download the driver for your graphics from here and install:- Go to my computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look in the list at graphics adapters, right click on it and select update driver and the downloaded driver should be found, you may see an exclamation mark at the graphics line, this wiil mean there is no driver for the card and by right clicking again on it and select update driver should sort it, reboot pc and see if you can alter the screen resolution.
