Question about Computers & Internet
There are two type of video adapters, a card type and integrated.
Integrated is when it is part of the motherboard. Card type is when it is a expansion card that is installed onto the motherboard.
Easiest way to tell which you have is by where you connect your monitor to your computer. If you connect by all your USB connections, mouse/keyboard connections then it is integrated...you can not replace it unless you replace the motherboard.
If you connect your monitor further away from the above mentioned, then you are most likely using a card type of video card. Here is a picture of what an installed video card would look like. The video card is the part that has the "small" fan on it. The left side of the picture is the back of the computer.
Here is a picture of an uninstalled video card.
Hope this helps you.
