You cannot upgrade the video card on this model without replacing the motherboard. Even if you did, you would have to verify that the LCD could also handle the resolution you desire.

It's much better to buy the battery from the manufacturer's website. The transaction is a lot safer and reliable. Take there are two categories of battery the ORIGINAL and REPLACEMENT. Normally the highe mAh capacity has the longer battery life. The price of REPLACEMENT batteries are much lower than the ORIGINAL batteries.

My hp dv 8000 Pavillion laptop will turn on and then it immediatly shuts down after 5 seconds or so


Power drain would be a better solution in this case. 1.first shut down the comp 2.unplug the charger 3. remove the battery and after press and hold the power button for 60 seconds without any charger and the battery.After the 60 seconds replug the battery and the charger and turn the computer .
and if this doesn't help
then try to take out the ram or memory chip from the computer and place it back.

Acer laptop 2310 series, 5yrs old 40 GB HDD; 256 MB DDR.Windows XP. Can i add more memory & if so how much?


Yes you can. You can increase the memory up to 1GB. If you are going to keep the memory inside then you should buy a 512 MB memory card, making your computer run on 768 MB of memory. If not then replace it with a 1 GB memory card. Remember, this computer can only support a maximum of 1GB total memory. The price depends on the memory module. The higher it is, the higher the price will be. Go to your local computer store for the price.

Cannot allocate hypermemory


I've noticed that in the bios you can't increase Dedicated video memory because the max for your laptop is 256 but if you check your overall video memory with the shared memory added on by right clicking on your desktop and clicking screen resolution, go to advanced settings, and it should show your adapter with the amount of total graphics memory, the dedicated video memory (video memory of video card), system memory(Mine is 0), and shared video memory ( Ram being accolated together with the graphics card making more video card memory in all). If you switched to XP however, you will probably have less video card memory. Everything should be fine if your on your laptop's default operating system (Mine is windows 7 home premium).

Screen gone wild


If your external video is working, most likely your VGA controller is good. Your laptop is using the same controller to control internal and external video. It could be two things that would cause your problem:
1. LCD VGA cable that connect your LCD to the laptop
2. Bad LCD VGA connector on the board(cold soldered joints)
3. BAD LCD panel

Any of the following repairs will require disassembling of your laptop.

Hi icr
You better try to increase the virtual memory of your system as seems you would nt be able to increase the pre allocated video memory to your video device.
The virtual thing you can do by going to the my computer's properties and then in advanced tab you find performance options .Here you can tweak your virtual memory accg to your systtem memory
