Upgrading the Graphics Card? and a RAM question...

So, I wanted to upgrade my graphics card on my laptop, then I remembered that... I don't really know graphics cards for laptops all that well. I currently have a NVidia GeForce 7150M / nForce 630M card in it... But some of the things I run seem to run poorly with it. I was wondering what is the best option for the notebook PC that I have. Any advice?

- I don't know if it matters, but I have the widescreen also.


Also, I have 2GB Ram that I added on to max the RAM option... Why, when running Cinema 4d and having it render the image, does it say that I don't have enough memory? Is this Vista just eating all of my RAM or something?

I'm sorry but the graphics card/chip in a laptop is built onto the motherboard and cannot be changed,
RAM: there are "two" types of ram in a PC system ram and video ram, I think what you have increased is the system memory, I don't think you have an option to increace your video RAM, perhaps you should consider trading in the laptop for one which is better suited to your requirements

Toshiba Tecra A9 Model: PTS52A-0EW03F. Can i upgrade the graphics card, if i want to install dedicated card there is option or not. I also want to upgrade hard disk and Ram please advise me i can upgrade...


Laptops have built-in graphics card on the motherboard and cannot be replaced with a different graphic card.
You can upgrade the RAM to 4 Gb and install a larger SATA hard drive.
This WEB site gives the specs of this laptop.

I have ACERT EMACHINE 250 NETBOOK THAT BROWSE VERY SLOW AND I AM USING WINDOW 7..PLS WHAT COULD BE THE POSSIBLE PROBLEM AND HOW CAN I RESOLVE IT. THANKS


In that case you should upgrade your Ram,memory and graphics card.If you are using 1gb Ram then upgrade it to 3gb by adding 2gb Ram.Then you can see the difference.You can also upgrade your memory like that.If you are using 500gb Memory then upgrade it to 1tb Memory.Then you can see and feel much difference.Upgrading graphics card is an optional thing.If you upgrade it you can see difference in gaming and in your system graphics.

If you do all this things surely your system will improve it's performance.

I nned to increase the possibilities of grafic card for working with programs that have image treatment and others and need a better grafic card


In your case, you can upgrade your system ram or memory bu not the graphic card.Upgrading your system ram or memory will boost your application loading and performance. Example your memory right is 1GB so make it 3GB by purchasing a 2GB ram. You will see the difference but do not expect to for the graphics just for faster loading and better performance can only give your memory. Have a nice day.

I need to have a latest graphics card in my IBM Thinkpad R52. Can I upgrade it or should I go for buying a new laptop instead?


Hi,

I recommend to buy new unit instead of upgrading it!

The old IBM Thinkpad cannot support anymore new graphic cards and the future applications coming and new hardwares.

Lenovo 3000 y410 graphic card upgrade?


Lenovo Y410 System RAM can handle up to 2GB of memory. Since the machine has 2 slots for RAM and you already have 1GB preinstalled with the computer all you need to purchase is another stick of 1GB RAM.

There is no chance of upgrading Graphics card since it doesnt have a video card slot and the preinstalled VCARD is onboard.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

I have a dell inpiron 1501 is it possibe to upgrade my graphics in any way?


Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Expert zone,

By analyzing your Dell laptop model it comes with inbuilt graphics card.So you cant able to replace your graphics card,and also it is not possible to install another internal graphic card.So solution is you can buy and install external USB graphics card.

I think it helps to resolve your laptop issue.If you have any problem regarding this issue leave a feedback we were happy to assist you.

Have a nice day!

Can I upgrade to a Graphics card?


Only high-end gaming laptops from manufacturers such as Alienware are capable of upgrading their graphics cards.

This model is not capable of doing so. Sorry.

Also, do not leave me a poor rating simply for the fact that this is not the answer you wanted to hear, please.

Thanks.
