Can I change or upgrade the Video Card on my Sony Vaio VGN-FZ140E?


No Bull, no internal upgrading.

One may be led to think so, due to computer manufacturers just abusing the heck out of their 'Advertising license'.

The motherboard chipset is an Intel GM965,

Integrated graphics, not a replaceable, therefore upgradable; graphics card.

My sony vgn-c240e not fillng the screen with windows 7. 1024x768 is the max available resolution when my notebook requiresa 1280x800 for optimum resolution.


You will need to update via the Microsoft update setting making sure you tick the box in the optional downloads to get the graphics driver you need after this is done you can then get a higher resolution to make windows 7 display fit the whole screen if this does not happen then you will need to the support website for the Sony vaio this link here is where you start to get the correct drivers you need for your display if the Microsoft updates didn't fix your graphics problem http://support.vaio.sony.eu/computing/vaio/index.aspx?l=en_GB

Can you upgrade a vgn sz480 to windows 7 professional


Your laptop would be a wonderful candidate for Windows 7. Sony is doing a great job with driver updates and most things should work 100% right out of the box. If you have Vista, you can choose the upgrade version. If you have XP, you will need to do a clean install, Windows 7 will save your personal files and old windows installation on the "C" drive and will list it as windows.old, I would suggest though that you back up every file you want on an external drive before you start.
