Can i upgrade my graphic card of dell inspiron n4030


It depends on what you would like to use it for. It's not feasible to upgrade the internal graphics card but you can purchase USB graphics cards to use.
The limitation of external cards is the data transfer rate of the USB port. Your model of laptop has USB 2.0 which would be the slowest of the possible external graphics options.
Essentially, you can purchase USB video adapters but they really just allow you to connect an additional monitor. Here is an example:

Can I upgrade my graphics card for my Gateway NV59C41U laptop?


Yes here is a link to a nifty way to have an external PCI Express slot on your laptop where you can add any PCI Express Video Card! :)

If you have 4GB of ram then you need to have a 64 bit processor or you will have a 4GB cap with the video card ram and the ram installed I believe.

WHEN I TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

What to i need to upgrade my dell 2400 to be wireless and wifi


WiFi -- As for the WiFi card that is literally plug and play, particularly if you have the XP service pack w/ the wireless networking utility.

What you want to do is purchace a PCI wifi card. I usually get my parts from tigerdirect.com or newegg.com. Once you get it in, you will need to remove the screws holding on the side of the computer(usually the left pannel) and you will then see 3 small empty slots on the motherboard. you will slide in the wifi card untill the two hooks on the side of the slot click into place. (Make sure you are as grounded as possible before taking out the wifi card from the static free bag.) When you buy the wifi card, it will probally come with a cd with drivers on it. install those before installing the actual card.

  1. with this age of computer it is still quite possible that the motherboard itself has a jumper that needs to be properly arranged to disable the onboard video.

HOW TO ADD GRAPHIC CARD TO LAPTOP


it is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.

some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.

most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,

but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)

 

the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)
