Dear ALEX5555,

If you have warranty for your Toshiba, try to get replacement.

Solder? Yes and No.

Yes: You would have to order a specific chip from a third party manufacturere who deals only with big suppliers and does not sell replacement parts..... you get the picture.

No: Soldering would require a very good technician and the process can be more time consuming and tedious than you want to here. Most techs don't bother. They replace M/Boards.

Suggeston: Take it in for a replacement motherboard with similar at a Laptop repair shop. May only cost $100 or so.

Good luck

So I have a Toshiba satellite M505-S4940 laptop and my laptop wont power up. the lights come on but no display. I was told that the graphics card was damaged just by telling someone what I had told you via...


Your laptop uses an Intel chip for the video, with the option of an NVidia chip. If you took the option then the diagnostic is correct - the NVidia chips of that generation were notorious for overheating and failing. If you have the standard unit (no options) then it's wrong.
You need to find out if the laptop actually starts: listen to the hard disk, if you hear it spinning while the boot takes place then the defect is somewhere in the video section. In that case connect an external monitor (a tv) and see if you get something - if you don't then the defect is in the graphics chip and the repair (if possible) would be about what he said. If you see then it's in the screen and it will cost you less than $100 to fix (unless you broke the screen). And no, you can't fix it yourself, the graphics chip is soldered on the motherboard.
If you don't hear the disk then the motherboard has failed and to replace it will cost you about $250.

I don't think you'll be able to. Most laptops, particularly the older ones, don't have user changeable graphics cards. On these models the only way to change it is to change the whole motherboard, this will work if you need to replace faulty graphics, but If you want to upgrade your system then it'll only work if your model was shipped with two or more different graphics chipsets.

Xfx video card stop displaying on monitor. I use xfx motherboard connector instead and display is OK


This is a BIOS problem, you have to boot to BIOS config menu, do it by pressing f1 or f2 or f10 on boot splash screen, browse the menus and find an option like 'init display first' or something like that, set it to Pcie or AGP, depending on your motherboard, reboot and voila!, have a nice day

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

Windows 7 detects my video card which is xfx geforce 8400 se having a 512mb but only detects as 256mb video card?


When you turn on your pc press F10/F2 (depends upon the motherboard manufacaturer) to go to system setup, function will be according to the motherborad, check for an option named APG/APG Memory/Video Memory. and replace its value using up n down keys or page up/page down or +/- keys. and choose 512 value and maximum value is 256 or less than 256, your motherboard does not support the video memory more than it is selected.

Qosmio F10 graphics card failure


If you're in the UK you have the law on your side: the Sale of Goods Act protects consumers by requiring goods to be "of merchantable quality". The notorious failure rate of the graphics card on the Toshiba F10 series suggests that this model is faulty by manufacture (have a look on the Toshiba support forums for a few examples in case you need to contact your local Trading Standards Office for support when dealing with Toshiba).

What this means in practice is the machine as sold is not fit for purpose. Don't be fobbed off by "warranty" nonsense either: it is reasonable to expect an expensive laptop to work for seven or eight years, not a mere 12 months. Again, consumer law is on your side. In the first instance your contract is with the retailer, so avoid going direct to Toshiba for as long as you possibly can. Pursue the retailer for a replacement, insisting on your right to be supplied with goods of merchantable quality.

When the original graphics card on the F10 fails, it is replaced by Toshiba service agents with a new motherboard with an integrated Go6600 video card. This puts an extra burden on the battery, reducing its life by 20-25%, so you might push for a replacement battery as well.
