Then remove the graphic card with a little fan. and replace it..

You can't really change the graphics card on a laptop.
It's almost always built into the motherboard on the laptop, which is changeable but, it's far too expensive.

Cant play medieval 2 without pixel shader 1.1 or better


Laptops not so great for playing games. But more than that is the fact that Medieval Two requires 128MB Hardware Accelerated video card with Shader 1 support and the latest drivers. The Inspiron 8500 only come with 64MB video ram if running Nvidia or 32MB for ATI.

Problem playing 3d online games


The lag is caused by the grahics card memory. 32 mb is not very much for todays games. I would suggest upgrading to a graphics card with at least 512 mb on it. Hope this helps.

COD4 Computer Version Troubles


The error message you got would show up in the following scenarios:
1. DirectX not up-to-date.
2. Video card drivers old.
3. The game being played with a not supported video card.

Check for the above mentioned and it should be either one of them.

To play the game on the least possible settings your video card has to be or meet the performance capabilities of ATI Radeon 9800Pro or better \ NVIDIA Geforce 6600or better

Which is the best


Depends on what's more important to you- gaming or watching Blu-Ray Movies.
XBOX 360 has the best games, better controller and a better online experience($50). However, it is slower, lower end hardware, annual fee of 40-50 for online play, no hd player (HD DVD is dead).
PS3 has one or two good games, small controller and has analog sticks in non-intuitive locations as opposed to the xbox controller. It does however, have higher end hardware(Games are seamless because of the higher end cell processor as well as better graphics card). You can also browse the internet on the PS3(it's really a computer)-u can connect a wireless keyboard and mouse and install Linux on it. Online access to games is free and comes with an awesome Blu Ray Player. The Black and silver finish is laso gorgeous.
So, if u;re more into gaming, go fo xbox 360, HD movies, go for PS 3. I have both and love the XBOX 360 just for it's awesome xbox only games(GOW, Halo, Etc).
