Verticle lines on screen


The screen has a fault and must be renewed.

It could also be graphiccard/software related.

Thy to visit your computers homepage and download and install the newest driver for the graphic.
This sometimes helps.

A new screen cost about 250 dollars to be changed depending on model.

Good luck

Solution to Faulty Laptop Graphics Cards


This an important notice about PC laptops! I just heard on the news that laptops made by Hewlett-Packard, Compaq, Dell and Mac; may have an overheated NVIDA Graphics Card, which can damage the main logic board. Symptoms of this problem are weak wireless signals and a blank screen. If your computer is affected by this, file a claim and send your laptop back to its manufacturer and they will either upgrade the graphics card, repair it or even offer you a new laptop with no cost. The reason why this is free is because this situation is so costly, the manufacturers are going to take up the cost of this. If you have been affected by this, doing this procedure could save you $400.00, the amount it would cost for this repair if it was taken to a repair shop. Hurry up! This offer ends March 14th, 2011. Make sure you back any information on your computer before sending it away. The new laptop will arrive in 6-8 weeks.

Can i upgrade ma graphics memory?


@gentmak

This computer is running on an on-board Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with 128MB-251MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. This means that it's embedded on the motherboard and thus cannot be upgraded. You can only upgrade the graphics card if your computer has removable graphics (such as Nvidia or AMD video graphics adapter) but it's still not recommended since the price of these upgrades will cost half or even 2/3's the cost of your computer.

Cheers.

Black screen during gaming default graphics settings, no overclocking forced to hard restart..only remedy is to use rivatuner to force 3d performance..at the cost performance during gaming. Gateway...


I've had a similar problem on my Dell Studio laptop. Windows Update will force an update to the graphics card driver, and the result will be full of bugs. To fix, consult the graphics card's manufacturer website (Intel, nVidia, AMD) and download the correct driver for your graphics card. Uninstall the current driver using Device Manager (Windows Vista/7 just type in "Device Manager" to the start menu search. Expand the Display Adapters section. Right click on your graphics card and select uninstall.) You should then be prompted to restart your computer, do so. Once your computer has rebooted, install the new driver downloaded from the manufacturer's website, after it installs you should again be prompted to restart, do so. Once rebooted, problem should be solved.

If I helped you, please give me a 4 thumbs up rating. If you still need more assistance, comment back and I'll be happy to continue helping.

Acer Aspire 9815WKHi Graphics Card was getting very hot, also the processor gets extremely hot, the fan is working, but cannot keep this computer cool and this has caused the graphics board to stop...


No it is not normal for the graphics to fail unless the heatsink and fan are so badly clogged.
The cpu will stand temperatures of up to 90 degrees but, it gets the main body of the cooling and the graphics chip does not get as well cooled, what happens is the graphics chip then suffers and the solder "bed" it is fixed by melts and the chip detaches.

You may be lucky and by cleaning out the cooling components get it working, but I suspect the motherboard has been damaged now

It's not a real problem actually, I'm just trying to see if it's possible to upgrade the motherboard and graphics capabilities of my MX6446 laptop or do I just have to buy a new one or computer


The cost of hardware dropped so far that it often cost more to upgrade than to replace. These days you can buy a decent laptop for $600 so to answer your question its better to buy new

Graphics Card buying help


Hi,
First of all you cannot change the graphics card in a laptop computer, they are integrated.
There aren't any external video cards for laptop gaming yet. There is a standard for removable laptop video cards called MXM, but few laptops actually use it.

This is the concept for an external video card >>>>

Unfortunately these devices cost a fortune (well over $100)

In conclusion if you wanted to up grade your graphics card you would need to purchase a new laptop with the graphics card you want.

Alien ware laptops come highly recommended.

Hi i want to install grafics card in my laptop


do you want to install the driver for the card that is already in the Laptop?

Or are you looking to install a new hardware graphics card??
Because this is close to impossible for laptops.

Do you have an expresscard slot? It might be possible to get a card for something like that.
Its not a good idea but Asus introduced a graphics card for laptop expresscard slots.

I dont know what it costs (im sure tho that its way too much)
its called ASUS XG Station and you will be able to plug in a pci-Express graphics card.

The problem is: The Expresscard slot is only 1/16th as fast as the starndard PCI-e graphics port in a desktop computer. so plugging in a nice card will not result in great performance unfortunately.


as I said its possible, but highly inefficient, wouldnt recommend it.

Upgrade graphics processor hp pavilion zv5034us


Honestly speaking, I recommend you to go for a New Notebook rather than changing the Motherboard since it is not possible to purchase another Motherboard for this Notebook with a better graphic card.

The actul Motherboard of your Notebook will cost you pretty more and I personally recommend you to go for a New Notebook with which you can get latest Graphic Card and hardware components.

You can find the list of parts available for this Notebook from HP Part Store from the link below :

http://h20141.www2.hp.com/hpparts/Search_Results.asp?mscssid=EJVUXR20AGCT8PMRJKPJXR6FSGX6C2W2

However, if you donot have any issues with the Notebook currently, go ahead working with it.

Hope this helps...
