You cannot upgrade video card on a dell c600, as there is no space inside.Regarding the HDD, I mounted safely 60gb Hard drives on C600, I think maximum size is 137 GB, due to the ATA Interface limit (128 GiB / 137 GB) barrier.

    Additionally, C600 can easily work with Windows xp if you upgrade RAM to at least 512MB. It can also be a good Linux machine, I would not try Vista on a Dell C series.

The video card is NOT upgradeable.

the system should support a 120 GB HDD

NOTE: This system is old enough to be considered operationally obsolete and not a good candidate for an upgrade. Especially with new portables starting at $499

Need to upgrade graphics card for dell latitude D800.Also need a bigger hard drive 200 GB or more.Have only 40 GB now with Windows Vista taking up most of it!


In this laptop the video card is a special format one, it can't be replaced with any other one because no other one in the same format was ever made. But you can always put a larger hard disk - as large as you want and you can afford to buy. Just make sure it's a PATA one - like this one.

I want to know whether or not i can upgrade my acer aspire 4736z laptops graphic card ever?


In a word, no. Because the graphice are on board the mother board and the only thing you could do is see if there is an upgrade driver that may give you more facillities.

Beeping on start up


Your motherboard has 64Mb built-in RAM and the video card needs some video RAM and has grabbed 8Mb of RAM which leaves the system with 56Mb of RAM. When you insert a 64Mb RAM module you have a total of 128Mb of which the video has grabbed 8Mb which leaves the system with 120Mb.
You can't change stop the video card from grabbing 8Mb of RAM, the RAM is essential for the video to work.
You can upgrade the RAM by removing the 64Mb RAM module and insert a 128Mb or 256Mb RAM module. You may even be able to insert a 512Mb RAM module if the motherboard will accept it, you need to check the specification of your laptop to see the maximum amount of RAM the laptop can handle.

First, you will not be able to upgrade the video card on your laptop, since video cards for laptops are specifically designed to fit onto the motherboard and the design of the laptops body.

Secondly, sound cards as well are also deisgined that way, some sound cards on laptops are built in to the mother board and higher end sound card for laptops are specifically designed to fit onto the motherboard and the laptop's body.

Hard Drives on the other hand can be upgraded to a higher capacity but you can't add an additional Hard Drive. I have checked the specs of your laptop has 80GB IDE. You can upgrade to 120GB IDE or higher if you like. Just make sure that you purchase a 2.5" HDD (5400RPM/7200RPM speeds).

Here are examples of Hard drivers that you need for upgrade. I checked newegg.com for available laptop hard drive. You can check other online stores or other computer shops near you if you as well.

**Since you have installed Windows Vista, I suggest that you upgrade the RAM (Memory) on the laptop for smooth performance for Windows Vista. The maximum memory on your laptop is 2GB DDR SDRAM. Buyin RAM for laptops are a little but tricky so you can just go to the link below for specific memory upgrade for your laptop (I suggest that you purchase 2 pcs of 1GB since your system can accomodate up to 2GB).

Link for RAM (Memory) :

**If you decied to upgrade the Hard Drive, you can still use you old Hard Drive as an USB external Hard drive for storage purposes. You will just have to purchase a 2.5" External Hard Drive Enclosure. Click on the link below for the example of the product :

You may be able to change the amount of shared ram allocated to the video card in the laptop's BIOS, but since the card is built into the mainboard, it cannot be upgraded.
