Q: Is it possible to change my laptop's graphics card?

Hi!

So I was wondering, is it possible to change my laptops graphics card to a better one?

And then I also was wondering what I can do to make it faster? -I'm going to change the hdd to a 96Gb Kingston SSD HDD and I'm also going to get 2Gb more ram but what else can I do?

Preferred Solution: Is it possible to change my laptop's graphics card?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Well I doubt you can get a mobile gpu off the shelf(I have never heard of it).
BTW you might as well consider buying a new laptop....

I can't figure out how to get the keyboard off and I don't want to break anything.

I'm trying to change my video card so I can connect it to my analog TV - Hitachi Rear Projection 48" 1993. The current video card won't do it. Is there any other way I can accomplish this? I've heard there are adapters but I don't know what to get.

Generally you can't change the graphics card, as it's actually a chip soldered onto your motherboard.

A:Can i change the graphics card from my laptop?

No there is no video card. In both cases the video is soldered to and part of the motherboard so if the motherboard is dead on the dv6-3121sl there is no video card to salvage and swap over to the older laptop. Sorry.

hello, i have a 9800gt that gives a very low fps on crysis, i went to the shop from where i purchased it and they said that you need to change your power supply, currently its 230watt, i was thinking that i should replace my card with another one as mine does not have a six pin supplementary power connector. so my question is that should i change my psu first or should i switch my card first?
 

A:Should i change my power supply or should i change my graphics card?

your running a 9800gt on a 230W PSU!? not sure how your doing that without it shutting down as soon as you start a game. the 9800gt needs a 450W psu with 24A on the 12v rail (s). change the PSU. you are fortunate that you haven't overstressed the 230W psu and destroyed the rest of the system.

I am trying to decide if I should get a new graphics card to be able to play games better. What do you think? If I do replace it, how would I go about it?

I had bought a PCI Express Card and put it in so I would have more USB Ports, it worked till I rebooted, and since then, Windows has not recognized it, so anything I plug into one of the USB Ports does not work. I would hate for the same thing to happen to a graphics card.

A:Am I able to change my graphics card?

Well if the system has a 6670 in it already then the motherboard has a PCI-E slot so either the 550Ti or 7770 you picked will be compatible. You need to find the model and wattage of the PSU first though, to make sure the new GPU is getting enough power.

Just curious but why did you decide to buy that system if you were intending to change the graphics card? The mobo and PSU may be of questionable quality so you would have been better off choosing and assembling your own components.

Hi.
I have a HP Pavilion dv9753eo Notebook PC, and I was wondering if it was possible to change the graphics card of one of these babies..
The current one doesn't live up to the standards of gaming these days.. (8400m GS Nvidia GeForce)
I've heard something about it being built within the motherboard, I hope that's not turning out to be true..

Thanks in advance.

A:Possible to change the graphics card?

Since it's a notebook, it's quite possible that your current video adapter is built right into the motherboard. I'm not familiar with that particular model but there might be some kind of graphics port for an upgrade but I wouldn't count on it. Unfortunately, HP Pavilions are pretty basic systems. Might be time for an upgrade if you want to play some of the newer games... How fast is the notebook, cpu speed-wise?

I am wondering if someone can point me in the right direction. I am running Windows 8 64-bit with an old Nvidia 8800GTX card. I have a new HD 7970 card. When I put the new card in, I can't get the OS to boot. It just says "Windows ecountered a problem" and will just do this over and over. I can't preinstall the ATI drivers before I put the card in. Can anyone offer some advice? Thanks.

A:Cannot change graphics card from Nvidia to AMD

You have to uninstall all the old NVIDIA stuff first. This includes the drivers and all software. Once you are sure you are clean, then change the cards and boot into win 8. Once there, you can install your new ATI drivers.

A:Solved: Graphics card change. A bit of help?

From the description, it appears this is an HP branded computer. The power supply is probably 250 to 300 watts, so I would not buy a graphics card that is much of an upgrade over what it has now (if it requires more power). Maybe sonething like a Geforce GT 210 http://www.dabs.com/products/gigaby...ess-2-0-hdmi-68VZ.html?refs=43990000-55140000 or 8400GS.

Okay, so I am not too great with computers, but I am purchasing this computer soon:

Newegg.com - iBUYPOWER Gamer Extreme 551D3 Phenom II X4 965(3.4GHz) 4GB DDR3 500GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I was wondering, how hard is it to change a graphics card? I am planning on changing the 5770 in this PC to a 5850 soon. Do I just take the card out of the motherboard and put in a new one? Or is it more difficult than that?

Also, does overclocking a GPU void your warrenty?

A:How hard is it to change a graphics card?

It is very simple. What you do to take out the 5770 you apply in reverse for the 5850.. don't forget to plug in the power cord for the card! As far as overclocking your GPU voiding your warranty... it is a very debatable issue as most manufacturers give you the program to overclock. Though a stable system always runs at stock clocks.

The original PSU does not have a PCI Express power connector. A PSU upgrade will be required. Without the PCI Express power connector connected to the video card your PC will not boot into Windows.

A:How to change graphics card and drivers?

What exact pc do you have? Motherboard..

It solely depends on your motherboard on which video card you should get..

Because of type of connection and speed it will handle..

In my opinion I would go nvidia over amd, but it's just solely based on my experience with nvidia over amd cards always having to change or have things fixed in games updates..

People have many problems with video card incompatible issues so once you pick out a video card you will need to use google and read reviews of it with your specific motherboard and look for people having problems.. Usually you will see many posts of people complaining about problematic video cards and your motherboard.. So obviously stay away from those..

my son says the intel graphics card not good enough for him playing steam game,can i change to a better graphics card,and if so any special things i need to do.and can it only take a certain card

A:atc-603-eb11,can you change the graphics card

Hi juice58,
 
There is a PCI express slot available on the ATC-603, so it is possible from that aspect. There are a couple other considerations that need to be made.
 
Game Requirements - So Steam is a digital distribution for different games. You can have a Steam Account, and have 1, 2, 50, 1000 different games on it. You'll need to understand which game your son is interested in playing. You can google "Steam (game name)" and it will take you to a Steam Page for that game that has system requirements. Here is an example: http://store.steampowered.com/app/570/
 
Power Consumption - I show that this PC has a 300w Power Supply (PSU). You'll need to find a card that meets this specification or a bigger PSU may be needed to run a higher end card. Based on the game requirements, a video card that requires a higher video card could need more than your current PSU can support.
 
Power Connections - Most video cards require a separate connection from the PSU, these are 6 (2x3) or 8 (2x4) pin connectors. Here is a picture for some older content, but could help you visualize it. https://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/zotac-geforce-gtx-480,9.html
 
I would recommend looking at a GTX 750ti as it is a smaller card that I don't believe requires a Power Connector. This will run most if not all games (it might require lowering the settings on some games to get a good frame rate).
 
Hope this helps,Cory

Hello there everyone.

My current computer specs are located in my signature. Ive bee thinking about this for a while, but is it possable to somehow change an S-VIDEO output on a graphics card to an input? Im assuming everything is output on my card atm but I would like to try and hook up my nintendo Wii to my LCD monitor. I have an adapter which converts YPbPr to s-video cable so I can hook it up to the graphics card. I know there are VGA-YPbPr converter out there but i dont have the money atm lol... Basically is there a way to somehow configure the graphics card so that it can view my wii? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading
 

A:Graphics card -- Change output to input?

I'm gonna go with no.

The way I imagine it the wiring could be adapted and re-soldered to the board to allow it, but the chip would still not know what to do with the signal, and it would probably fry.

If anyone knows anything I don't here I'd love to hear it, but it sounds grim to me.

Easier would probably;y be a modulator to use from the Wii to the monitor.

A:Can I change the graphics card on IdeaCentre 300s

Hi Blackknight5000 , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
Would you be getting this desktop IdeaCentre 300s ?
 
The integrated graphics card is an additional feature of modern desktop nowadays. 
If the add on card fails , the integrated GPU would allow you to still use. It also allow users to purchase a lower cost desktop and to upgrade it later to user's own choice of graphic card. 
 
You would notice from the hardware manual (page 34) that there is also 1 PCIE slot x 16  for the addon card . 
Under specifications tab on the bestbuy ,internal list shows Number Of PCI-E x16 Slots  : 1 
 
Cards recommended and tested for full performance  : (page 48)
part number : 00PC564 NV GF GT720 1G VGA/HDMI LP VIDEO_CARD part number :00PC522 NV GF GT720 2G VGA/HDMI LP VIDEO_CARD
 
Hope this answered your query.
 
 
Regards

The 0x80072EFD error in the MGADiag report indicates a connection failure to the validation servers.
Make sure that the system is connected to the internet, and use Internet Explorer to attempt validation at www.microsoft.com/genuine/validate - it should pass, and clear the error.
If not, post another MGADiag report, and tell us what security software you're using (AV/Firewall, etc)

Hi everybody

I am new to the forum and look forward to your advice.

My system is dedicated as a virtual recording studio and comprises

Pentium 4
XP prof SP2
Radeon 9250 128Mb
Cubase VST sx3 recording and production software

My problems arise from the installation of the Radeon. Their tech support advised uninstall and reinstall the drivers and download the new control centre.

This enabled cubase to display and run properly but still left me with an annoying problem on bootup.

I have photos of the screens if it will help. The image is unstable in that the screen breaks up continuously into blue vertical streaks until the windows welcome screen appears and then all is well. Entering BIOS setup the screens are more stable but the text letters are coloured alternatively red and yellow.

any ideas?

A:Graphics Card Change, Strange Booting Before Bios POST

Hello mileztyler1205. Welcome to the Forum.

Because you say that when you take the 5450 card out of the PC you still get video that leads me to assume that the motherboard has on-board graphics.
It is necessary to disable the on-board graphics chip in order to use a video card. Newer motherboards switch the on-board chip off automatically, but some older boards required you to do so manually in the BIOS settings. That is where you should start.

The "click" sound is interesting. Most PCs beep, not click. Here I am going to guess that the speaker on the motherboard or computer case is defective and rather that beep you are just getting an electronic snap (or click).

As for the second machine it sounds like the video driver did not install correctly.
Completely uninstall all graphics card software and the driver. Then restart and try again.

And it is always better to write 2 posts. Otherwise it gets very confusing as to what question is being addressed.

A:Can you change a laptop video card/graphic card?

Unless the laptop has onboard graphics, there is no reason why the card can't be changed.

Of course, I am not very knowledgeable with GFX cards, so I can't necessarily tell whether is has onboard graphics or not.

A:[SOLVED] BSODs on hibernate - assumed cause: change from nvidia to ati graphics card

I see plenty of evidence of the Nvidia issues that you had.

These BSODs (the first of which was back in February) however do not appear to be graphics related at all, they blame networking related drivers instead.

Some of the older ones blame avmnwim.sys which appears to be the driver for your AVM VPN client.

Now, I don't speak German, so I am unsure if there is an update for that driver. Please see if you can find one. The current driver is dated Fri Mar 26 09:05:25 2010 (4BABC205).

Most of the newer ones blame your wired networking driver:

Code:
yk62x64.sys Mon Sep 28 21:19:31 2009 (4AC07193)
You can update it from here - Marvell: Download Drivers

If BSODs continue after both updates please turn the Driver Verifier on - http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ed-473665.html

My laptop (envy m6 1162la) was not using the graphics card (AMD Radeon 7640M). I tried reinstalling the software AMD Catalyst but it wasn't detecting it either. I checked the windows device manager and the graphics card was greyed out (had to turn the option to show hidden devices because it wasn't showing). I tried updating drivers but it kept showing an error message (Code 45). Then I followed the steps in this guide and tried uninstalling the device, rebooting and reinstalling. Now it's not even showing in the manager, and I can't find the driver download page in the HP website. I also checked the AMD legacy software (catalyst) because it said it included the old drivers, but no luck so far. I'd appreciate any help in this matter. Thanks in advance.

My question is. Is this a good card for movies and games?

Like could it play Guild Wars, Oblivion, AOE 3, BF2, and the big MF *FEAR*

I dont know anything about laptop graphics cards or what its equvalent to in nVidia cards. ATI is like another language to me

Thanks for the help.
 

A:Graphics card for a new laptop.

The 200M is the chipset. It has onboard graphics that are derived from the ATI X300. The X300 is not much of a graphics card. Not sure where this performance falls compared to an X300. Chances are it's lower or about the same.

Here's some more info on the chipset:

Just wondering, as I have a good processor and am going to upgrade the memory on my laptop, as to whether you can upgrade the graphics card on a laptop? I have a Samsung V20 2Ghz Pentium 4 with 248MB Ram (at the moment) and Intel Graphics card, which is rubbish and why I want to change it.

I just wondered, seeing as a good bog standard (better than Intel shite) card is quite cheap, whether you could put it in a laptop or not.

Thanks.

Nope, 99% of all laptops have the video integrated into the motherboard. There usde to be options for docking stations where you could add an external video or other card to. Might be worth a look on samsung's web site.

I think we have had at least half a dozen of this same thread already. Please! Don't think that you are somehow original! With 99% probability someone has asked your question before and you can find the answer by using the amazing "search" feature.

As a rule you cannot replace the graphics on laptops. Only some very special models have replaceable cards or PCI(-E) slots. Some docking stations have PCI(-E) slots too. I really doubt that your consumer laptop fits into any of these categories.

A:New graphics card for laptop?

It's a laptop, you can only upgrade ram and hard drive, nothing else.

Alright guys, this looks like one of the best places to post this question and couldnt find much using the search.

I was wondering what you would recomend as the best graphics card within ?50 - ?120

My system specs:

Vista Home Premium x64 Service Pack 1
Acer Aspire 5735
Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 Duo CPU @ 2GHz
4GB RAM

CURRENT GRAPHICS:

Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family
1.28GB Adapter RAM
Hope that gives you enough to go on. I have no idea about graphics cards but Ive just got into PC games and want to be able to play them all quite well.

Thank you in advance

A:Best Graphics Card for my laptop?

Hi Jacob and welcome to Vista Forums

Sorry, but you cannot upgrade the graphics capability of a laptop as the GPU is part of the motherboard.

What you could do is to upgrade the memory of your laptop so that you have the maximum amount installed that is supported.

Mates I'm using Windows 8 and I have NVidia GeForce GT550M as graphics driver but my laptop does not see my card although I have installed graphics driver. Is it fixible or not ? If yes, how can I fix it.

I think, It must be written that "GeForce GT 550M" not Intel Graphics Driver and;

Just joined this forum and I need some advice and hope someone can assist me?
I have an Advent 7003 pentium 4 windows xp home edition 2000mhz processor with 40gb hard drive
It has a S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR installed and having just bought a new game I find it will not work (Lara Croft - Angel of Darkness)
I have been advised that I will need a graphics card?
If so :-
1. Is it possible to fit a graphics card to my Advent 7003?
2. If so which would be the best one to get?
Any help gratefully accepted

A:Graphics card for laptop

Most laptops are not meant to be used for gaming and thus have no capacity to upgrade anything other than memory or a hard drive. I would bet your graphics card is built into the motherboard and cannot be upgraded. I have however seen docking stations that allow you to add an external video card or other peripheral but I would hazard a guess Advent has no such thing.

Okay so I was wondering, if a laptop has a Wireless G card in it, internal, is it possible to change it to a wireless N card? (This is probably a dumb question...)

I was wondering if (and in what cases if you can do it at all) can you change a laptop's wireless card?

Yes, by purchasing a pcmcia card, to insert in the pcmcia hole on the side of the computer (that little flappy narrow door thing on the side)

"Integrated ATI Radeon Xpress 1270 with HyperMemoryTM (64MB dedicated local frame buffer)"...

That's what you got, and the key word is "Integrated". No replaceable video card. You would have to replace the motherboard. All you can do is increase the system memory to the max and hope you can allot more system memory to be used by the graphics chip

Hi, I've had a Sony Vaio SVE14AA11M and it has been giving me a multitude of problems. I'll be creating other threads on other forums for the other problems, but this one regards a problem I'm having with the graphics card.

When I bought this computer, it said that it had 2 graphics card, some ATI Radeon I'm not sure which, because sony does not tell you anything and an intel integrated graohics card. Everything worked fine for a few months, I even beat Far Cry 3 with the ATI card, but then the option to switch cards vanished and it automatically uses the intel card. This is obviously a big problem because every game becomes unplayable.
I've tried installing drivers and I've also installed catalyst center, but still nothing. when I run dxdiag.exe, the computer does not recognize the ATI card.

Really its up to you whether what's worth it or not. It depends on how much the laptop is, how much do you care, and are you willing to spend the 100-115 to repairs the video card. If you think its time for an upgrade get a new laptop or desktop of you feel you can still get a few more years out of this laptop repair it. If this was me I would just grab a new laptop

A:Is my Laptop Graphics Card Dead?

Hi

your card is outputting a refresh rate or monitor size that the screen cant handle, you need to start in safe mode and apply the lowest setting such as 640 x 480 or 800 x 600 and check the refresh rate is set to 70 hz,

then reboot and change the size back to a normal setting.

The other easier way is to start in safe mode and remove the card in device manager, then reboot and let windows reinstall it.

Hey

Well basically, my laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L500-19z
My graphics card is a crappy Mobile Intel series 4 family chipset.

I originally bought the laptop at Christmas (2009) for everything: Social Networking, coursework, a little gaming etc. But at the time I didn't think it was rubbish for big games (such as Dragon Age: Origins).
So anyway, I was wondering if it is actually possible to replace my graphics card?
I'm looking at the PNY NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS PCI-E Graphics Card, but is that even compatible with laptops?

My game is quite laggy, it's OK 50% of the time but it gets quite annoying when you're trying to battle and it takes about 5/10 seconds for an ability to actually work (if it even does!)

Are there any graphics cards out there that I can use? Or can I even replace my graphics card, or increase the performance of my game?

Thanks in advance

I have a Dell 6000D laptop with radeon X300 on board graphics module. I am currently running Win 7 home premium.
I ran a test to see if it would run Win 10, the results failed because of the X300. I checked and it has the current driver.
Is it possible to use a USB graphics card to make it run Win 10?

A:external graphics card for laptop to run win 10

That thing is ancient. While I suppose it would be possible to use a usb to vga adapter to hook up an external graphics card, Idk how well they work. For the best experience you would want a usb 3.0 port which I know that thing does not have. There is also no guarantee it would pass the test, until I looked just now I didn't even know you could do usb to vga/dvi/hdmi. I am unsure if the test would take a usb graphics card and if it did that doesn't remove the x300 from the computer, you MIGHT be able to uninstall it and get lucky. But the honest to god truth is you should get a new laptop. Even if it were possible it isn't worth it :P

A:Laptop Graphics Card Replacement

There's a lot of information on your system at support.dell.com.

If I understand the specs correctly, you have an Intel 965PM chipset, without integrated graphics. (Another version uses the 965GM chipset, with integrated graphics, but that's not what you have.)

I doubt that it's practical to convert to the chispet with built-in graphics, but you could ask your repair shop. The performance of the nVidia graphics is probably much superior, but you appear to not benefit from that.

Hello.I've had this issue for about a year now, but since it was never really that important, i just let it go. BUt now, I would really need a fix. Basically what happened is that I had an issue with my cooling fan, it was ful of dust. So i had it cleaned out by a company, but when i got my laptop back, my dedicated amd graphics no longer worked. But not only that, it was literally gone from every scan. Cant find it under device manager, not in the dxdiag, not anywhere. SO my guess is that it must have been somehow disconnected. My question is, how can i reconnect it. Where on the motherboard do i find the connection between the graphics card and the motherboard. I dont know if these 2 are connected, but my cd/dvd rom also no longer works.

A:External graphics Card For laptop

Yes to an extent, but for the price you might as well buy a gaming laptop to begin with.

The price of the systems can be moderately low now if you use the basic GPU Dock station that can help but they lower the performance of said card and usually can only be used easily from home.

But to answer your question, yes it will.

A:Graphics card upgrade in a laptop....?

You cannot upgrade the graphics card in that system. Laptops with upgradable video cards are usually expensive and it is a feature advertised prominently on the box and on the laptop, itself (stickers and such).

If it had video upgrade capability and you purchased it new, it would have been a sort of in-your-face brag you couldn't miss if you read the box and the stickers on the unit.

A:BSoD after installing ATI Graphics Card on laptop

I am also facing the same problem. I was playing online game, suddenly the screen was blank for 5mins and then BSOD. I reinstalled windows. When i install display drivers, i am getting BSOD for atikmpag.sys.

Then booted into safe mode and updated display drivers with "Standard VGA display drivers".

Observation: If I install ATI drivers the monitor drivers are missing automatically in device manager.

Dell Studio 1558
i3 process, 4GB RAM
Windows7 64bit.

Any kind of help will be greatly appreciated,
Madhu

A:Laptop not booting, possible graphics card issue?

Try Last Known Configuration. If that doesn't work then boot into Safe Mode and uninstall the Display driver and restart. Windows will load the Default VGA driver. Then you can download an updated driver for the display.

A:Samsung X15 plus laptop - Graphics card probs?

Hi, i have taken 3 pics of the problem (not good quality though-with mobile). Just to give you an idea of the nightmare problem (just click the links below):
1. Pic 1 = This shows the start up screen:
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m308/048957/samsung_screenpic1.jpg

2. Pic 2 = This shows the welcome screen:
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m308/048957/samsung_screenpic2.jpg

3. Pic 3= This shows the desktop:
http://i107.photobucket.com/albums/m308/048957/samsung_screenpic3.jpg

As you can see from the pics, there are thick vertical lines throughout, from start up until desktop. They flash as well which is quite irritating and even more so when you move the pointer.

So, anyway, i would be grateful if anyone could tell me if they think it is the graphics card that is not working and whether the Samsung X15 plus has an integrated or seperate graphics card (if this is the problem). If integrated then what are my options? and if seperate, can i simply get hold of another one and replace it.

If no one can get back to me, or knows then i may try another forum and if i get a response i'l post it on here.
Many thanks. Kevin

A:Laptop Graphics Card not functioning properly?

I don't have much experience with ATI/AMD, but is there an option in the AMD software to select default display adapter?

is graphic card and video card the same size?


is it possible to change a video card in a laptop into a graphic card?
 

A:Laptop graphics card upgrade question

Not always same size.



is it possible to change a video card in a laptop into a graphic card?Click to expand...

Normally no.
As the graphics card is usually incorporated into the mobo
But some laptops can be updated, you are best to contact your laptop manufacture, to find out if yours can or not

First, is it even possible to upgrade a laptop?

Second, my specs of my laptop are:

HP Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
Vista Home Premium 64-bit
AMD Turion(tm) X2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-70
4.00 GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics

Third, the graphics card i want to put in here is a NVIDIA GeForce Go 9600M-GT 512MB.

Fourth, do i also need to upgrade my processor/s?

Fifth, where could i buy the above components?
Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: Upgrading my Graphics Card in a laptop

First, yes, to an extent.
Second, uh-huh, okay..
Third, okay... Not gonna happen...
Fourth, you could do that, but if you want to game, a new processor is not going to really help.
Fifth, no idea.

Only possible way to add a good graphics card to that would be external graphics "card" solution. If you want a gaming laptop, you will need to buy one. (1500+$)
