I could be wrong, but most laptops have all the peripherals intergraded into the motherboard in order to get such a slim profile all on one board. The sound card, video card, network card, and all are non removable and non replaceable. When it comes time to upgrade, then you'll have to start looking for another laptop. Sometimes though, Toshiba will have driver upgrades on their website for new features and fixes.

Have Toshiba A10. Installed a proper wireless card. Set sees wireless but never wants to connect. Think it is driver problem but have the right driver so not sure what the issue is.


In network card setting there should be a choice to let windows configure the wireless connection or do you have a protected wireless network?

Sir, iwanted to know weather i could add an graphics card to my kaptop toshiba satellite L655-S5112?


Hello,

Sorry for the delay. Unfortunatly, you can not add a graphics card to your laptop without having to redo the video port on the motherboard itself.

Hi my names robert england \r\nI was wondering if the the graphics card of my TOSHIBA Satellite C660D-14W can be replaced with a more heavy duty graphics card like a NVIDIA Ge-Force thanks.


Sadly a graphics card on a Notebook/Laptop cannot be replaced as the graphics card is built into the motherboard of the laptop, you would have to buy a new laptop to get a better graphics card

Why does Toshiba satellite a10-S177 have 1gb ram limit? Motherboard? BIOS? Or just that 1GB SODIMMs weren't invented yet?


Motherboard

More specifically the motherboard chipset.

The motherboard chipset is the Northbridge chip, and the Southbridge chip.
{In reference to the motherboard chipset technology used for this laptop}

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.

The Northbridge chip determines what Processors can be used, what Ram Memory can be used, (Plus the amount), and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI Express being High-speed graphics.

A graphics card inserted into a PCI expansion slot is not High-speed graphics.
Neither is Integrated Graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.

{CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg


The motherboard chipset for the Toshiba Satellite A10 series of Notebook PC's, is an
Intel 852GMV.
The maximum amount of ram memory supported is 1GB.

Need To Upgrade Or Somehow Add A New Graphics Card


There is a way, yes, but it requires a few tools and no fear as you rip into the laptop case. I could explain this in detail but I'll leave you with this tutorial on the 'HOW-TO' side of things to browse at your leasure:

http://www.pcworld.com/article/148909/upgrading_your_laptops_graphics_card.html

However, upgrading the RAM will improve speed (if that's what you're really going for). Otherwise, adding a more powerful card may not increase your screen resolution but can add more kick to your gaming experience.

If you're just looking for a little more speed with higher resolution, I'd upgrade the RAM a bit and purchase an external flat screen 1080P 22" monitor that'll plug right into the back of the laptop. It will save you the frustration of possibly damaging the internals of your pc and the disappointment when you realize that the increase in performance isn't worth the risks/effort involved in switching out the cards.

Have a Emachine Laptop M6809 , the screen is all pixelated and distorted from bios boot through WinXP loading , same with external monitor .


Theres a problem with the video card of your laptop. If you just formatted your laptop, check if you have installed the driver of your video card. Or bring it to the service center if you still have a warranty for it.

Was it replaced with the same model graphics card? It sounds like a corrupt driver install. Try uninstalling and re-installing the graphics drivers. Sometimes it is necessary to run a utility like RegCure to clean up the registry after the old driver uninstall.

I want to update my graphics card


The video subsystem in Toshiba notebook computers is an integral part of the overall design of the computer. As is the case with most notebook computers designs, it's not possible to upgrade the video subsystem or to add memory to it.

Can I upgrade to a Graphics card?


Only high-end gaming laptops from manufacturers such as Alienware are capable of upgrading their graphics cards.

This model is not capable of doing so. Sorry.

Also, do not leave me a poor rating simply for the fact that this is not the answer you wanted to hear, please.

Thanks.
