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

How can I upgrade Gateway E-475M graphics from integrated intel


Can't do it mate. You have a laptop. The reason why it's called an integrated chip it because the MB main processor is ALSO handling graphics. If you had a desktop, you could insert a graphics card in an available slot and disable the Intel integrated graphics after installing a new graphics card. Can't do it with a laptop! Sorry mate...

Can video card be upgraded in emachine el1358g-51w


yes you can upgrade the graphics card, you have integrated graphics but you can purchase a PCI-E graphics card and bypass the on board graphics but keep in mind you'll have to buy a "low profile" graphics card as there's not much room in your case and a full size card will not fit.

Is it possible to upgrade the gts 360m video card in my g51jx-x5?


I am afraid you wont be able to do that as graphics cards on notebooks are integrated as opposed to those in desktops.I have known some tech friends who tried to replace the integrated graphics card on a laptop but it failed and ruined the system.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

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

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

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

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.

How to increase video memory


If your video card uses a portion of your system RAM you can adjust the amount it uses through the BIOS or the advanced settings of the Driver Software.

Typically, the amount of video memory is locked because it's integrated to the video card; the only way to upgrade the card capabilities is by upgrading the card itself.

If you have an Integrated Intel Graphics Accelerator follow these links:

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.

UPGRADE GRAPHICS CARD


Hey,

From the looks of your system, Its a pentium D 915 CPU, with integrated graphics.
From the spec sheets, you should be able to upgrade to even an 8800 series, although that would require you to purchase a higher wattage power supply.
My recommendation is:
if you want graphics grunt for later model games, (i.e shooters like CoD4) the card you need (without needing a new PSU) would be the 8600gt. This is an excellent card and does not require external power.
If you want a cost-effective option, go with the 8500gt or an ati (amd) something equivalent. They arent the fastest cards out, but they will do a better job than the integrated graphics.

Hope that helps,
Sincerely,
mister_apocalypse, aka <<CKS>>DRpyro
and
maxicube, aka 'monsieur'
