Question about Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 Notebook
So first off I know this system is not the best for gaming but I want to upgrade it's gaming capability. The questions are as follows. In advance thank you for your help and I am sorry if they are dumb questions
1: It says It has 1gig of ddr2 sdram in it currently but an on-board graphics card. so
a: How much ram does vista support and how much should I upgrade? 1 2gig ddr2 stick or 2 2gig sticks? Also what spec on the ram?
b: Is it capable to upgrade/replace the graphics card on it? i saw on another site that is has an express slot free. So that means I could put a single pci express card in it right?
Any suggestions of what I should put into it?
Thanks for your help
A. vista 32bit supports 2.5-3 gigs and vista 64bit supports 8-16. i would stick at least 2gigs for vista 3gigs being recommended. a way to figure out what type of ram is to download CPU-Z.
B.most likely you can't upgrade your graphics card. but i would check Toshiba's web site to see for sure.
C. there are things that you can try to make it slightly better for gaming. try downloading the latest video drivers for it.
a lot of laptops have the option of dedicating some system ram for video. try turning that up.
the next thing you could do is download riva tuner. this will let you overclock your gpu but don't overclock too much cause you could fry the video card and you might not be able to replace it.
