    Thankyou for the information.

    I am talking about my Acer 5920g laptop.

    I know i can upgrade the nvidia 8600M GS 256MB card. Do you think my local pc repair shop would do it?

    Would it cost a great deal?

    Thanks again.

    Seen this guide on Acer Guy.
    Also this about compatible cards
    Trouble is i've no experience upgrading hardware?

  • redbionic Nov 02, 2010

    Trouble is i've never done a hardware upgrade. i wouldn't want to mess it up.
    Do you feel it's not worth it?

  • redbionic Nov 02, 2010

    Thanks for your answers. i will try that. What the age of an out of date laptop these days? isn't it subjective.

LG GSAT20N is a DVD and Blu-Ray Drive that can burn and read DVD's and CD's. Including Dual layer DVD's.

It is able to read blu ray discs, no mention about burning blu-rays. Just reading them.

So it can play Blueray just fine.

    The display adapters in the laptops are either build into the mainboard or they may be replaceable special mini pci-e slot cards. You can ask what a local repairer would say about the upgrading. But generally its not a good idea. The new card will most likely produce too much heat or more heat than the original and the machines life expectancy will shorten.

  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    the most difficult part is finding such a card, they are not generally sold like normal desktop pc parts.

    you could swap the card out yourself if you find a new one somewhere.

  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    Found some cards

    They are definitely not cheap.


  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    Cheaper in ebay

    So expect a shop to charge around 1.5 to 2.5 times the price of a used card.

  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    Also one more thing, note that the latest cards might be bigger and you might not be able to close the cover and the cards heatsink might stick out from the bottom of the laptop if its too big for example.

  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    well its entirely up to you. The guys at a local shop can do it for you, they won't charge much if you bring the card and the machine, they just have to swap it out, won't take long and they won't charge much.

  • Ekse Nov 02, 2010

    Whats the age of an out of date laptop? well it depends what the laptop is used for, in gaming, probably 1-2 years and the laptop starts to fall behind.
