I believe that this is intergrated onto the mainboard and cannot be changed usually they were fitted with the Geoforce 440

CAN I UPGRADE FROM OS X LEOPARD 10.5 TO MAVERICKS


Nope, yo can upgrade to osx lion (10.7 max),
Apple says you'll need a better graphics card if you want to use mavericks.
Your macbook has a Intel GMA x3100 which is unsupported.

Try osx lion if you hace 4gb of RAM. It's cool :)

Cheerio :)

Change graphics card vostro 1710


Some laptops do have a graphics card that is mounted to the motherboard, with it's gold plated contact pins.
The pins slide into an expansion slot on a circuit board, that mounts to the motherboard.

Removable, therefore deemed may be upgradable.

Most however are like Chris stated, and are mounted to the motherboard with a BGA surface mount.

http://www.ersa.com/art-ir-pl-650-346-1472.html

Scroll down, click on the Red ->
Take a few minutes to view the IR 650 demo video. (5 minutes)

Shows you the IR 650 BGA Rework Station at work, but more importantly shows you the BGA surface mount; Solder Balls, and Copper Pads.

IF, your Dell uses Integrated Graphics, the motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965 chipset,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intel_GMA#GMA_X3100

Means the G.P.U. is integrated in the Intel GM965 motherboard chipset.

Nope. No upgrading of that baby.

IF, your motherboard chipset is an Intel PM965 chipset, it uses Discreet Graphics through a PCI Express bus,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_mobile_chipsets

Means the laptop comes with an Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT graphics chipset,

http://www.dell.com/us/en/bpi/notebooks/vostronb_1710/pd.aspx?refid=vostronb_1710&s=bpi

Here we can see the Dell Vostro 1700 series of Notebook PC's, uses a separate graphics (Video) card, (IF your laptop came with this option)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Dell-DY445-VOSTRO-1700-INSPIRON-1720-nVidia-GeForce-8600M-GT-Video-Card-256Mb-/120955693339?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item1c2985691b

The green circuit board of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M, you can barely see.
The aluminum metal plate on top of it, is attached to the copper Cooling Tube, then to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

[Heat is drawn from the graphics chipset {GPU} on the graphics card, to the large aluminum metal plate. The plate absorbs the heat, then transfers the heat to the copper Cooling Tube.

The Cooling Tube is a slightly flattened copper pipe, sealed on both ends, and filled with Nitrogen gas.
The Cooling Tube absorbs the heat from the plate, then transfers the heat up to the finned rectangular Heatsink.

The finned Heatsink absorbs the heat, then radiates it away with it's thin fins. Air flow from the Fan Assembly, helps carry away heat from the fins of the finned Heatsink ]

This is what the Nvidia GeForce 8600M looks like, not attached to the cooling assembly,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/ASUS-NVIDIA-GeForce-8600M-GT-8600mgt-512-MB-512M-DDR2-MXM-II-Graphic-Card-f-F8SV-/330701665242?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item4cff5af3da

You can see plainly that this is a graphics/video card.
Four mounting holes, and gold plated contact pins on the bottom.

The actual term is graphics ADAPTER card. The Brownish/Red square you see in the middle/bottom, is the graphics chipset.

[ The actual G.P.U. or Graphics Processing Unit, is the black chipset in the middle of that brownish/red square, has Nvidia in white on it, and white characters on the bottom -
***-***-XX.
X's used because I can't read it.
The brownish/red square around the GPU is a small circuit board.

ALL GPU's have to have a small circuit board, in order to mount to the motherboard, or a graphics adapter card. Also for electrically connecting the GPU to a motherboard, or graphics adapter card.

GPU,

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

In conclusion;
1) Depends on what Intel motherboard chipset you have, right off the bat.
Intel GM965 = No
Intel PM965 = Maybe

2) Intel PM965? Then your laptop should have the above Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT, with graphics adapter card, and cooling assembly.

2A) Does that mean you can change the GeForce 8600M GT?
Maybe. You need a BGA Rework machine, and better Nvidia GeForce graphics chipset. You're talking Ka-Ching here. $$$$$$$$$$

Probably have to stay within the same Fabrication Technology in nm.
(nm = NanoMeter. 1 Billionth of a Meter)
The 8600M GT is 80nm fab technology.
So is the 8700M GT.
When you get to the 8800M GTS, it changes to 65nm.

That's the architectural size. Doesn't state all the technological features that changed with it. (80nm to 65nm)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Nvidia_graphics_processing_units#GeForce_8M_.288xxxM.29_series

Means your BIOS program probably won't handle it, and doubt there is a BIOS upgrade for it.

3) Better graphics adapter card, and graphics chipset?
Again, that IMHO would only be an Nvidia GeForce 8700M GT, and NOT worth the trouble, believe me.

So that's it? No chance of upgrading your graphics? No, not so.
More information in an added Comment.

Can i upgrade ma graphics memory?


@gentmak

This computer is running on an on-board Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with 128MB-251MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. This means that it's embedded on the motherboard and thus cannot be upgraded. You can only upgrade the graphics card if your computer has removable graphics (such as Nvidia or AMD video graphics adapter) but it's still not recommended since the price of these upgrades will cost half or even 2/3's the cost of your computer.

Cheers.

I want to buy a laptop. Please suggest me which processor is best? ie. Intel pentium processor or intel pentium dual core processor? Will intel pentium dual core processor overheat easily?


hello,,,,,,,,,,,,,
First you need to be clear that dual core is the family of Pentium series. so there is no processor called Pentium.............. now regarding your question i would suggest you do not go for dual core... Take core 2 duo or I3 /I5/I7 series of processor..............
I am giving you a configuration in a good budget

Rs 50,800/-
Intel 3 GHZ Core2 Duo Processor,3 GB DDR2/DDR3 RAM, and a 250/320/500 GB HDD. DVD writer, 15.4-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 dpi. integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 video card, integrated modem and sound card, Wifi, Touchpad mouse and in-built speakers. It has interfaces like Express Card slot, S-Video port, 4 USB ports, Firewire port, bluetooth and a 6 in 1 Digital Media Reader. The laptop comes with an inbuilt camera .



It would be better if you can tell me your budget ............... So that i can give you a good configuration ......................

I would recommend a Dell XPS. They have the 2ghz duo core processor, 4g ram, Intel x3100 acceleration with HD video/graphics card, and a STAC AC97 sound card. This is more than enough machine to keep you in the WOW anywhere for years. These run anywhere from $800 to $1000. Well worth the money.
