Question about HP 285527-001 - Compaq Presario 900&Presario 1500 Series 8X Laptop DVD Drive (285527001DVDROM) CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Presario I want to know how many bits there are on my video card? How can I find this out. Also, would I be able to take the video card out of my laptop and put it into my desktop computer (if it is a better video card than my desktop has) so that my computer runs better graphics? My laptop does not hold a charge and others seem to have the same problem. I brought it to a computer store and they basically told me it would cost MORE to fix than to buy another laptop. It is a compaq presario 900 series pp2140 Thanks for your help.

On that model, most likely 16 bit..maybe 32 but that would be unusual for one that old

Want to know what video card is compatible for compaq presario SR2013 WM


video cards are designed to run on a number of different busses - agp, pci, PCIe, usb, firewire, etc.. The available busses on your computer will determine which cards are compatable with your computer. Other considerations are power and ram requirements. How far any of these can be upgraded will determine the limit of a cards compatablilitiy.

Hi lokarpit,

I've got good news for you! Your Presario's motherboard only supports Supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards, and your GeForce 8600 GT is a PCI Express x16 graphics card.

However, I'm a bit concerned about the graphics card being 1gb? Both Nvidia's 8600GT and 8600GTS came out with only 256mb GDDR3 memory on them. Are you sure you have the right card?

But, if you have one with 1gb, the motherboard won't care, it's the graphics card that actually, will either work all 1gb, or only the 256mb if it's been changed.

Good Luck to you, and my answer is as long as it's a PCI Express X16 card, Yes, GO FOR IT!

Don't forget the leave a rating based on my solution.

Since you are Using AMD CPU, its better to get ATI chipset Video Card

Compaq Presario X1000 laptop


have a look on the web for the "X1000 Maintenance and Service Guide", which contains full disassembly instructions. All you need is a cross-head screw driver and a bit of patience. The Graphics Card (an ATI Mobility Radeon 9200) has a couple of screws and then just plugs into the motherboard - no soldering required! You can usually find these cards at reasonable prices at a well known auction site.
