Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Graphics Card/RAM Upgrade/Add

I have a laptop made by Toshiba in the Satellite series, specifically A135-S4527. It's about 9 or 10 months old and I've been wanting to update the graphics card and RAM.

I'm no veteran at computer tech or jargon, but I've managed to learn that most laptops have a video card integrated to the motherboard to save space, which is irreplacable. Then I thought of adding another video card, rather than replacing it. I searched online for comprehensive specs of my laptop : http://www.nextstepplasma.com/productdetail.asp?productid=1738

In the multimedia section, this is what it says:
Multimedia: Max Shared Video Memory 224 MB Video Bus PCI Express x16 Video Chipset Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 Video Integration Motherboard

I know that the Video Chipset is part of the motherboard but what caught my attention was the video bus. It seems to me that the specs say that the laptop comes with a PCIe x16 video bus. Does this mean that I can essentially add a laptop video card? If not, what is it used for? In addition, I found that the integrated video card can be configured to use 256mbs of the system's RAM. How do I go about changing that amount?

Also, I wanted to add some RAM. Currentlly, I have 2 512mb PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM in 2 slots. I want to replace both with 1gb modules so I have 2gbs but what do I need to look for in purchasing RAM modules?

    Yeah I have a very similar problem. I have the same laptop and wanted to add a graphics card because the toshiba A135 has a shared video memory. I play alot of games on my computer so I could use a new graphics card so that I dont have to split my memory and make computer run slow. 
    Basically what I am asking is Where can I get a good cheap reliable graphics card for my computer?

Is the keyboard on the toshiba satellite a135-s4427 backlit and if so how do i activate it


The Toshiba Satellite A135 series stock keyboard is not backlit, and that model only supports one type of non-backlit keyboard, which is interchangeable with several other Satellite series. Here is some extended info on the keyboard for your model: http://www.machinaelectronics.com/store/buypart/Toshiba_Satellite_A135_S4427/K000044100

Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Charger problem


Get another laptop.

The A135 is a lemon.

Problem is either with the dc jack on the board or more than likely the motherboard is damaged.

I've repaired a number of A135's and 95% of the time motherboard had to be replaced.

Sorry for the bad news, but I hope this helps.
