Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
The built-in video card of a compaq presario c713tu laptop is Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The video card has 256 - bit graphics core running at 400 mhz. It has up to 224mb maximum video memory. I think the package of the laptop has only a 512mb ddr2 667 memory, what I advice you is that youd just use around 128 mb only of memory of your video card.
The question is how? Well first you'd need to go into your BIOS where you could change the settings of the video card. you could change its settings into 128mb. How to go into your BIOS? when you restart the computer, it allows a setting wherein you could press "delete or f2", this purpose is for you to enter and manipulate the settings of your bios. Why use 128 mb only of memory of your video card ? simply because if youd use its maximum settings, the tendency of which is that it uses half of your memory which is only 512. The result of which is that the computer will not run that smoothly.
If you have 1GB of memory, you could maximum the settings of your video card.
In terms of upgrading your video card, your board has an extra PCI Express x16 port wherein you could add an additional video card.
If you have only a 512 mb memory, the best option for you is to upgrade the memory. Thats all.. :)
