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

I want to upgrade my graphics card for my laptop whats the best one to get


Hi, how are you?

Laptop do not use graphics card. The usually have the graphic chip integrated into their motherboards.

There are laptops designed for gaming. Alien Laptops or Asus Laptops are few of them.

So, upgrade to graphics card for laptops... hard.

You can increase performance by upgrading memory.

God Bless You!!!

Hope it helps.

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.

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!
