Question about Toshiba Satellite A135-S4527 Notebook
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?
The user guide has instructions to add more memory.
