Hey,

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.. :)

Does Microstar MS7525 motherboard support Intel(R) Core 2 Quad Q8300 cpu and ATI Radeon HD5450?


Hi, you can see some info here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01386897&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en#N280

As far that i can see you can not use the Quad core cpu
in this mainboard.
Motherboard supports the following processor upgrades:
  • Core 2 Duo E7xxx (Wolfdale-M)
  • Core 2 Duo E4x00 (Conroe)
  • Pentium E2xxx series (Conroe)
  • Celeron Dual Core E1xx0 series (Conroe)
  • Celeron 4xx series (Conroe)

But you can use the graphic card as long it is PCI-E.

I found the manual on the net that gives you instructions on replacing components if you're not sure how, it can be found here.

RAM upgrade
The Compaq Presario C700 uses DDR2 Laptop RAM as shown below.
slasher_x_11.jpg The motherboard of the Presario C700 has two RAM slots, one of them will be occupied by the 512MB RAM (running at 667MHz) module you have at present. This leaves one more that can accomodate a DDR2 667Mhz card of up to 1GB or you could get two 1GB DDR2 800MHz (the faster DDR2) cards and remove the 512 leaving you with a wopping 4GB of memory, that'll definately speed it up. Just remember the Presario C700 can only have up to 2GB of RAM so don't go higher than that or Windows will not boot for some reason.

Processor upgrade
The Presario C700 supports any Socket P, Core 2 Duo or Pentiun Dual Core chips. The fastest processor you can get is the Intel T8300 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo Processor with 3MB L2 cache and an 800MHz FSB

For a full list of compatible processors go to page 9 of the user manual found here.

To improve performance, increase the RAM from 512Mb to 1Gb or 2Gb.
The graphics card is part of the motherboard and therefore cannot be upgraded, BUT the graphics card used shared RAM (part of the main RAM) and you most likely can increase the video RAM by configuring the video RAM from the BIOS configuration.

Replacement Laptop Graphics Card


Hi!

You can actually replace and upgrade the video/graphics card if it is not integrated. But in this case, upon checking on your model, the video card on this system is NOT replaceable or upgradable since it is built-in or integrated with the system.

Thank you.

Buying a laptop


I wasn't aware they still put mobile Pentium 4 processors in laptops. If you can, you should get an Intel Core Duo or Core 2 Duo.

Other than that, the specs look pretty good. You might want to upgrade to 2GB of RAM though if your computer is going to be running Windows Vista.
