Hi there,

I believe your laptop is Aspire 5100.
You CAN'T upgrade your video card, because the video card is on motherboard. it's a chipset.
For custom graphic card, it's too much, you can't just replace it,
you have to have some tools to solder the chipset (you can't solder it by hand) on your motherboard. and if your solder is bad, your laptop won't work properly.

If you want to play game, you should buy desktop, in this you can upgrade your video card (many options).

My pc is an E-1500D with an ATI Radeon Xpress 200, 64 MB graphics card and wanted to know what would be the most cost effective 128 MB card to upgrade to. Thank you


128mb are hard to find, you are better off going for a 256 or 512mb card probably a Geforce 6*** series card from any manufacturer, or an ATi/AMD radeon card maybe 9*** series, would be easier to find a video card on the internet in most cases, any AGP slot card.

I just installed SIMS 3, and it keeps freezing up and crashing. Is my ATI Radeon X600 the problem?


The card is most likely NOt the problem, best thing to do is upgrade the Graphics drivers and other drivers... If that doesnt work...
Check to make sure the Ram is sufficient,
I believe it would be the problem if its a older card, and Sims 3 is a high Polygon game. and Alot of radeon cards Get old quick.. if You really want to play sims 3 Upgrade your Video Card If your running a Crossfire Mother board (Ati only) Buy one of the new Ati cards 4890 i believe is the newest one, Its a great card
If your running a Full compatibility board buy one of the new Nvidia's But before you buy make sure your Computer Supports it :)

I have a acer aspire 5100. I'm running vista sp1 ultimate 64x I have 4 gb of ram I'm having a very difficult time trying to plat Knights of the Old Republic (a game from 2000) I have a ati radeon xpress...


This model comes in 2 different flavors and I am unsure which one you have but here's the skinny on it:
Option 1:
ATI Radeon® Xpress 1100 chipset with integrated 3D
graphics, up to 256 MB of shared system memory

Option 2:
• ATI Mobility™ Radeon® X1300/X1600 with up to 512MB of
HyperMemory™ (64MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM;
up to 448MB of shared system memory), supporting

Regardless of which one you have, you should be able to set the shared memory in the BIOS, or you can use the Acer ePerformance Management software either installed on your machine already, or which can easily be downloaded from their website at this link:

ATI radeon xpress 1250 for laptop


Have you tried the windows update,usually for vista they have a built-in WDM drivers for ATI, and right now you may want to use that for the meantime if the computer did not recognize the exact model number also when using the windows update it you can check if microsoft has a new WDM driver for your video card.

The video card is a built-in video card on the mobo, right?
