The graphics chip is part of the motherboard on a laptop. It cannot be upgraded and there isn't any expansion slot to accommodate an graphics card. The only thing that may be possible is to increase the video RAM in the BIOS but it will take away some of the main RAM. This is called shared RAM.

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.

Hello,

Unfortunately, you can NOT upgrade your net-book Acer Aspire One with a Graphics card. Some Acer Laptops have this feature, with a graphics card already installed or with a graphics card integrated into the system board.
If you want to have a laptop with higher graphics power, buy a laptop from Acer with the "G" ending, like the Acer Aspire 8940G for example.

HOW TO ADD GRAPHIC CARD TO LAPTOP


it is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.

some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.

most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,

but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)

 

the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)

You do not have a "graphics card" in this laptop. There is a hard-wired graphics processor chip on the motherboard. Check your owners manual and you will find it listed. I don't have mine with me or could look it up for you. The short answer is that you cannot upgrade the graphic card.
