How can I upgrade my emachines em250 netbook?


Unfortunately laptop motherboards are not like desktop motherboards - on laptops the motherboards and laptop itself are unique. The motherboards cannot be replaced to a different, faster model. the only components that you can probably change is the memory and sometimes the hard disk.

Can you upgrade the graphic card on a acer aspire one netbook


The graphics chipset in netbooks and most notebooks are integrated with the motherboard. They do not have separate graphics cards like desktop PCs do. So unfortunately the answer in this case would be no, you would not be able to because there are no slots to plug the graphics card into.

Sorry

I hope this helps.

I have a Toshiba L355D-S7825. I run Windows 7 on it. I want to update my graphics card to Shader 3. Will my computer support this? Is it motherboard compatible? What's a good card with this...


The shader 3 mode is a inbuilt option that is designed within the graphic cards (i.e. intergrated or slotted cards). This function usually use for high graphics gaming for PCs. You cannot upgrade the Graphic card to get this Shader 3 options for your Laptop. The best options you can do is to update the drivers & DirectX to the latest for your laptop "ATI Radeon™ 3100 Graphics" intergrated graphic card.

Hope it helps.

My video card isn't that great and I haven't had any luck finding any updates for it either.


This laptop uses integrated graphics the driver is available here
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-78119-1&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&os=4062&product=4035651&sw_lang=&key=null&site=null

Updated drivers are unlikely to improve performance. Increasing your system memory if it is under 2GB will improve performance some.

Hi can i upgrade the grafic card in acer aspire timeline 4820T ? i read that there is 128mb intel...thank you... :) and wich type of graphic card is in there ? thank you


You cannot upgrade this graphics card because it is not a graphics card but is an integrated graphics chip. This means that it is soldered onto the motherboard. This means that you cannot safely remove it nor will any other chip probably work where the old one is. This is very common for most laptops.

How can i upgrade a integrated graphic card


Hello, and thanks for using FixYa.

Integrated graphic cards can not be upgraded, these are build into the mainboard of the computer, only way to upgrade your graphic card is to replace the whole motherboard with a newer board.


Please let me know if you require further assistance or if you have any questions.
Thanks,
Ekse

I have a dell studio laptop 1555 with intel integrated graphics,is it possible to upgrade graphics card to 1 gb with ATi or equivalent for gaming and How?


I am pretty sure that you can not. Unless you are an electronic expert and you can get a laptop ati mobile graphic card which is compatible with your laptop. These parts are very expensive and these modifications are not cost worthy. If you have the time and money try to change the hole motherboard. Hope that helped!!!

Can arcer laptop graphic card be upgrade


No, your video card cannot be upgraded, it's integrated in the motherboard. The only thing you can do is to assign it more memory.

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.

Graphics card


Unlike desktops, notebook video cards are not usually modular or interchangeable, as the are integrated on mainboard.
On laptops usually you do not have a graphic card that mounts on a slot, like desktops PCI, or AGP video adapter.On your laptop the display adapter chipset is integrated on motherboard, and usually it is not possible or not convenient replacing motherboard to upgrade graphic adapter.
