Hi,
You Can,t really shuffle Graphics cards Around where Laptops Are Concerned.
the individual manufacturers, want you to buy thier Products Only. hence so many different Socet/Board types.
you,ve gotta grin And Bear What you,ve Got unfortunately, check in the Bios settings, how much of your system memory, is designated to running graphics, Can sometimes be allocated More. That you have the latest video drivers installed for your Graphics Card/Chip.
And that you have Sufficient Memory/RAM installed on the laptop.
Alternative, is to sell And Buy upgraded Machine, Alienware recommended.

How to replace the keybord on an advent 9517 laptop


Advent laptops are manufactured by DSG International, which owns the names to other name-brand computers such as Acer and Hewlett-Packard.
The Advent laptop keyboard has integrated mouse touch-pad functions that allow you to move the mouse around the screen with your fingers.
Function keys at the top of the board contain alternate ways to exit and enter software applications.

Function Keys
The Advent laptop keyboards function keys are "hot keys" that act as shortcuts to applications and functions on the computer. The function keys sometimes don't work and won't carry out the function assigned to the key. This problem is considered a hardware malfunction, and the solution is to replace the keyboard or use a universal serial bus (USB) keyboard for the laptop. b> Malfunctioning Keys b> Advent keyboards are made of thin plastic. Striking the keys too hard will cause the keys to break or stick awkwardly in the housing unit that supports the keyboard. When these keys get stuck in the housing unit, a pin tool can easily set the keys back on track. If there are too many keys that get stuck or broken, you can purchase a replacement Advent keyboard and have it installed. b> Mouse Problems b> The mouse is located at the bottom of the Advent keyboard but is connected to the keyboard data strip that sends information through the keyboard unit to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse malfunctions, check the connector under the keyboard to see if it is loose. A loose connector can cause the mouse or other keys not to function on the laptop. b> Electrical Shortage b> An electrical shortage can cause an Advent keyboard not to work properly. A shortage is when the main board of the laptop is not getting the voltage needed to efficiently operate the computer. When this happens, certain devices underperform or become inoperable. Check to see if your power supply is extremely hot or if your system heats up around the keyboard. If so, replace the electrical adapter. b> Wire Damage From Keystrokes b> The wire that is responsible for the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the Advent laptop extends from under the middle of the keyboard to the LCD display unit. This wire is unprotected and can be damaged from striking the keys over the wire. When this happens, the display will not show the correct colors or the screen will go black. To eliminate this problem, purchase a keyboard cover that fits the keys to relieve the pressure between the keyboard and video cable. b> Keyboard Drivers b> Problems have been reported with upgrades from Windows Vista to Windows 7. Windows 7 will not recognize the system drivers that operate the Advent keyboard. To get the keyboard to work, you must load the old drivers in Windows 7 Safe mode, which is used anytime there is a hardware or software discrepancy. Advent keyboard drivers can be loaded from the original restore CD, which is included with the system at the time of purchase.

I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

Drivers
Your laptop should have been supplied with a Utility CD which contains a copy of the user manual and all the drivers. There is also a copy of the drivers on the laptop itself, you can find it by browsing to the c:\applications\drivers folder. Finally you can download some of them from The Tech Guys website.
The Wireless LAN card uses a Ralink RT72 chipset so if you're struggling to find drivers then the "USB(RT257x/RT2671)" ones on the Ralink site should work - http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php.

Memory Upgrades This laptop has two memory slots. One slot is accessed by removing the cover underneath the laptop (see the "Bottom of Laptop" section below)

Advent black screen


Hi,

This sounds like a bad video driver update.

Restart the machine and repeatedly tap the F8 key. When you see the advanced boot menu appear choose safe mode.

You will see white text on screen that will stop on a system 32 driver, wait a minute and let it boot through.

Next, go do device manager and uninstall the display drivers or roll back the driver to a previous one.
Reboot the machine and it should boot into windows normally. You may have to reinstall the display drivers if they don't reinstall themselves.


Please post back if you need anymore help or advice.



Good luck.

Can i change the video card on a vaio VGN-NS240E? I have integrated video but would like to upgrade to something that can handle games. Anyone know how?


I'm sorry. It is not possible to upgrade the Inbuilt Video card. However, the Computer is shipped with the Express Card/54 slot. You can contact your nearest favorite dealer to get the Express Card slot supported Video card and install in the Computer. This improves the Graphic performance.

Video Card and memory!


I'm sorry to say that there is usually no way to upgrade the video card in a laptop, so the only alternative is probably going to be to purchase a new machine.

Of course, no laptop is going to be very good at playing games. A Desktop would be a better choice, assuming it has a PCIe slot. You can then purchase any PCIe video card, and in a year or two, upgrade to a newer card to play the newer games.

Advent 9517 laptop


Depends on what you want it for. No new laptop is going to be "bad" for simple computing. Here is a brief (advert?) review of one of these:

The Advent 9517 laptop is a great value workbook and storage centre. The Intel Core 2 Duo processor is more than suitable for all your office application and media needs especially with the large 2GB memory. The 160GB hard drive included within this system will be enough storage space for loads of music, video and photo files. Combined with the 17 inch screen you will be able to watch all your video files and view photos in excellent quality. The onboard Intel graphics card is adequate for windows and video but will struggle with anything more complex so this machine is not ideal for any gaming. This laptop also comes with an integrated webcam so you can video call your friends and family with ease. In all we would recommend this laptop to be used for work or media and is very good value considering the amount of memory and hard drive space you get for the price.

So the question is back to you "Will it suit yor needs?" and if you are still in doubt pay extra for the one that you think will do the job, but remember - In 2 years time even the latest laptop will be old hat.

Note: Except for speed, I could still be happy with my first 486 based laptop running Windows 95, but I would not be running the latest programs on it. My requirements for a laptop are mainly to do with navigation and the usual Office products (my main computer is a different matter!).

So back to the question: "Will it suit your needs?"
