Sorry, but no. There isn't any type of external video card for these, and the internal card is integrated into the motherboard.

Can i upgrade my graphic card of dell inspiron n4030


It depends on what you would like to use it for. It's not feasible to upgrade the internal graphics card but you can purchase USB graphics cards to use.
The limitation of external cards is the data transfer rate of the USB port. Your model of laptop has USB 2.0 which would be the slowest of the possible external graphics options.
Essentially, you can purchase USB video adapters but they really just allow you to connect an additional monitor. Here is an example:

Can I upgrade my graphics card for my Gateway NV59C41U laptop?


Yes here is a link to a nifty way to have an external PCI Express slot on your laptop where you can add any PCI Express Video Card! :)

If you have 4GB of ram then you need to have a 64 bit processor or you will have a 4GB cap with the video card ram and the ram installed I believe.

About Satellite R630 - 13U laptop, my father bought it but it has no video card like nvidia etc, only built in, is it possible to put a video card?


The only way to upgrade video on laptops is usually through an external USB video device. If you were hoping to upgrade to latest video to play games you are likely out of luck. Your machine has a Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD that will use up to 1.5 gig of memory. You should get reasonable performance from that.

How do I find my graphics card on acer laptop 4720z and change settings to best play games


* The system configuration of Acer Aspire 4720Z PC Notebook is :

160 GB or larger hard disk drive / 5-in-1 card reader / 512 MB or 1GB DDR2 533 MHz DIMM module / Intel Pentium dual-core mobile processor technology T2310 (1 MB L2 cache, 1.46, 533 MHz FSB), Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset.

* Your system have "Mobile Intel GL960 Express Graphics Chipset" graphics accelerator card embedded in the motherboard. Like most of the laptops/notebooks, there is no room for upgrading the graphics card in the motherboard!

* But you can upgrade the RAM upto 2 GB using two DDR2 DIMM memory modules.

* If you want to play 3D games with better performance, switch to Windows XP SP2 and upgrade the RAM!

* If you want to upgrade the memory (RAM), you can check this site : http://www.laptoppartsexpert.com/c-60093-acer-aspire-4720-series-as4720z.html

The memory on dedicated graphics cards is set aside specifically for the use of processing 3D graphics and effects. Increasing dedicated video memory requires upgrading a video card with one that has more memory built in.

Video / graphics upgrade


Laptops use graphics chips that are soldered onto the motherboard. Because of space constraints in portable computers, this is the only practical design. Since the graphics chip is built in to the computer, it cannot be upgraded. This is one advantage of desktop computers, which typically use PCI or AGP slots that accept video card upgrades. While graphics chips in laptops may not be quite as high-performance as the video cards in desktop models, companies such as ATI and Nvidia have developed portable graphics chips that deliver impressive 2D and 3D performance."
