The graphics card on a laptop are onboard so you cant chage them, the processor has not got a universal socket so also cant be changed, the only things a laptop allow you to upgrade is the hard disk drive and the memory modules, which plug into the bottem of the laptop.

System does not work. What does the E0 message mean on the base?


Hello ,
Try swapping the ram in the slots, or testing one stick at a time.

If the above solution didn't work for you check below

"E0" error to be fixed by swapping the DVI cable's position from the mobo port to the graphics card's port, Make sure your cpu cooler fan is connected to the cpu fan header. If non of these sulotions worked for you, make sure your sticks are seated all the way back. Also try using different sticks, if you have any lying around. Or borrow some from your friends.
Hope one of these work for you

Can i get this geforce 6200,256mb ddr2 (that i had in an old desktop cpu) to work on my compaq presario c700 which i bout like 4 yrs ago? seems to me that this big ole board cant be jerryrigged to work...


The video card form factors are different for a laptop and pc. A PCI Express slot for PC is not the same as a PCMCIA slot for a laptop. You cannot interchange video cards between them.

Added 1G memory, for a total of 2GB. the system still only sees 1G


If you installed total 4GB memory, the system will detect less than 4GB of total memory because of address space allocation for other critical functions, such as:

- System BIOS (including motherboard, add-on cards, etc..)
- Motherboards resources
- Memory mapped I/O
- configuration for AGP/PCI-Ex/PCI
- Other memory allocations for PCI devices

Different onboard devices and different add-on cards (devices) will result of different total memory size.
e.g. more PCI cards installed will require more memory resources, resulting of less memory free for other uses.

On a SLI system, since PCI-Ex graphic cards will occupy around 256MB, another 256MB will be occupied after you install a 2nd PCI-Ex graphic card. Hence, 2.75GB memory left only if two SLI cards installed on A8N-SLI Premium while 3.0GB memory left with one graphic card without other add-on devices.

This limitation applies to most chipsets & Microsoft Windows 32-bit version operating systems.

If you install Windows 32-bit version operating system, we recommend that you install less than 3GB of total memory. If more than 3GB memory is required for your system, then below two conditions must be met: 1. The memory controller which supports memory swap functionality is used. Chipsets later than Intel 975X, 955X, Nvidia NF4 SLI Intel Edition, Nvidia NF4 SLI X16, and AMD K8 CPU architecture support memory swap function. 2. Windows 64-bit OS which can address more than 4GB memory. You can check below URLs for reference:

hope this helps

Says vga no signal


Replace the graphics card and test again or if you are using the built in graphics chip, try connecting to a seperate card. Check the cable to the monitor and also try a different monitor.

If that fails, the issue is likely to be with the motherboard and its components.
Possible causes to be investigated are:
Power supply PSU not working
CPU not working (see if the heatsink is getting warm)
Motherboard damaged ( only certain way to test is to replace the cpu with aknown good one, if the system fails to boot, the motherboard is damaged)
Try swapping the RAM modules, sometimes they fail halting the system

Hi I need a better graphic card in my acer aspire 5536! Right now its got a ATI Radeon HD 3200 and it sucks.... need to know if I can change it myself and which cards fit in my laptop ?


Hi

Thank you for your query

Unfortunatley unlike desktop PC's, laptops do not have swappable graphics cards as they are built into the motherboard

So in essence to replace the graphics card you would be swapping out pretty much all the internals of your laptop i.e. to swap graphic card you will need a new motherboard, if you need a new motherboard then you will need a new CPU etc etc

Apologies again

I hope this has been useful

Video card....


Most cheaper laptops do not include a full-blown graphics board with expensive dedicated graphics memory. Instead, system memory is shared between the CPU and the graphics subsystem.
How much memory actually is reserved for graphics purposes depends on the software you are running. The frame buffer (the memory used to store the pixels on your desktop) is only part of it - games, for example use a lot of memory to store textures and geometry data.
  • Minimum Graphics Memory: 128 MB
    The smallest memory size your system must reserve for CPU/Graphics sharing.
  • Maximum Graphics Memory: 1341 MB
    The largest chunk your system can configure for sharing.
From the DirectX report you can see, it currently uses 27 MB only.
Your laptop lacks the CPU and graphics power to run high demand games anyway, so 128 MB of shared memory should be sufficient. You can configure this to 256 or 512 MB in the BIOS configuration menu, but I doubt it will make any noticeable difference for you.

I built a new computer recently, but the motherboard did not have any integrated graphics. So I added a graphics card, and now it refuses to turn on. The power LED turns on for a split second and then back...


sounds like the CPU or ram are at fault. double check the fitting of each make sure the fitting of the heatsink hasn't damaged the chip. If using more than one Ram stick take one out and then swap them round.
what did you do before to fix the problem? was it a short? check everything is as it should be.
reset the bios using the jumper if there is one.

Ok, i have two things to ask 1: Where is the video card on a emachines W3503? 2: Could a video card swap be done between a W3503 and a W3052? Thank you for viewing :)


1. The emachines W3503 has an integrated ATI Radeon™ X300 based graphics card. It has also a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available.

2. The emachines W3052 has a NVIDIA® GeForce®4™ MX graphics card. I'm not sure whether it is integrated or not, but I'm sure that if it is not, it will be an AGP graphics card. Since The emachines W3503 has a PCI Express (PCIe x16) slot available for installing a graphics card, the swapping of graphics cards between the 2 machines is not possible since they support different types of graphics cards.

Screen went dead, unplugged the graphics card and


So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button.
Try to boot the pc.

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker, put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

Could be bad ram, motherboard, cpu, powersupply, videocard.

If the video card is suspected to be damaged, try it in a other pc (friend's, mom's or dad's, pentagons' ).

if it is bad, there is your answer.
