According to a Dell Rep at least.. This is mostly for the people who have the SXPS 16 with the 3670. I was speaking with a dell rep today and she told me that if I were to buy a 4670 and called tech support.
I could ask for their help to install the video card without voiding warranty. I don't know if this is true..
but does anyone know where to get a 4670 besides Dell's site where it's $109
If I bought m1730 with geforce 8800m can I upgrade it later to get the geforce 9800m? If yes, do I buy the video card and install it myself or I buy the card and dell technician will come to my house and install it for me?
I bought my XPS laptop a couple of years ago and got it with the 128 mb GeForce 8400M GS.
I read on a couple of different websites that you could upgrade the XPS videocards on the XPS.
I went to the Dell website upgrade section and when I entered my service tag number, video cards wasn't an option to upgrade; though motherboards were.
Is it possible to upgrade the videocard to the 256 mb GeForce GT; which I should have purchased to begin with? Do I have to buy a new motherboard and put the 256 chip on it? Lastly, is the 256 the only video card I can buy to replace the 128?
I want to upgrade the DELL vostro 1700 video card (8600M GT). I was thinking for a GeForce Go 7950 GTX (possibly SLI) or a 8800 GTX (again, possibly SLI). Perhaps evena Quadro FX 3500M could be suitable (if there are modifications of drivers in order to play with games).
i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.
But then.... 64MB of system video memory?
Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.
I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.
Can my Acer use it?
IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?
Just bought one of these ACER ASPIRE 7720G laptop's from ebay afew days back. It comes with the Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS, but i'm wondering if it's possible to upgrade this card with something that packs more of a punch.
If it is possible, what would be the ideal card for this setup?
The processor is the Intel® C2D T7300 Processor, 2 gb ram, 250gh hd space.
i would like to upgrade my video card, if it is possible and if it is worth it. my 1720 has the mobile intel 965 express chipset family. ive seen sigs (dr650se and someformofhuman) stating that they have the nvidia 8600m gt and was wondering if this is compatible with my 1720.
also i found out through this forum that i can upgrade my cpu (which is the measly t5450 1.66 ghz) to the beastly t9300, and add a 2nd hard drive (which is my first step in upgrading this dell because i only have a 160 gb drive).
i was looking for a new laptop until i came across this forum and found out the possibilities of my dell. i decided to stick with this and just upgrade it! thanks for the insight, and thanks in advance for all the help that i will be asking for!
I recently acquire a VGN-SZ491N from ebay and since I don't really like Vista, so I wipe out the hard drive and install Windows 7 Ultimate from scratch. I followed the following steps and everything works fine except for the video card portion.
A. Install Windows 7 B. Install missing / unknown drivers C. Reboot and install the utilities, in the following order:
1. Sony Utils DLL 2. Sony Shared Library 3. VAIO Event Service 4. Setting Utility Series
After Step C, I reboot my laptop and then able to install Nvidia driver and upgrade the video card from generic one to Nvidia at Speed mode.
But when I manually switch from speed to stigma, nothing happen, so I would like to know what should I do to enable the Intel video card portion and make it work in Windows 7.
I just want to know if my laptop video card is upgradable? I have the 4745G core i3 330M with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 514 VRAM. I want to know if it is possible to upgrade it to 1Gb or 2Gb any brand of video card.
if there was a way to turn off the touch-strip at the top of the 8510 - or, better yet, an individual "button". The problem is, when I move my laptop around, I sometimes brush one of the touch-sensitive buttons.
At times I've been wondering why my wireless wasn't working and, after trying various things, finally realised I'd accidentally hit the little blue antenna button on the touch-strip...
If I can turn the entire thing off, that would be great.. is there a service or something that monitors it which I can turn off?
if the Nvidia 130M can be upgraded? I love everything about the HDX 18 but the video card... running games like crysis is not what I hoped it to be. Was wondering if any high tech users know anything about upgrading the video card on this bad boy?
I just took the wraps off my new DV6t. I live in Japan so I had to wait two weeks while my parents spent $150 dollars to ship it to me, but it finally got here and...
There's artifacting everywhere. Little pink boxes appear even when I'm mousing over things in the file explorer, and when I opened up the catalyst control center (and it shows the two 3D scenes for comparison) there was artifacting like crazy!
I tried uninstalling the drivers, but the pink boxes still continue to spawn in random places on the screen. Then I went to ATI's website but apparently they don't hand out drivers for the mobility 4650... so I had to go to HP's website and get the same stuff I had before. Nothing solved...
I bought this hp dv9500t laptop in oct, 2007 and is now out of warranty.
I have updated Vista to SP1. Yesterday, I was playing a song in windows media player while the lid was kept closed. Suddenly, the song went into trrrrr like sound and the machine rebooted on its own. After having rebooted on its own, the display went into lowest bit depth (6 bit/600x480!), I had to manually change it to 32 bit / 1680x1050.
Then to my shock, I found, the video adapter was not Nvidia and it defaulted to default generic VGA driver in display properties.
Later I tried reinstalling the nvidia driver and even upgraded it to latest from laptopvideo2go site. But nothing solves the issue, it never identifies any nvidia display driver.
Looks like the display card got corrupted after upgrade to sp1.
What options do I have now? How much will it cost me to get the video card replaced, if it is determined that the card is corrupted? I am in India now, so I am clueless where I need to send this machine to get serviced?
2) Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) = 16 (DDR2) or 25 (GDDR3)
Here is the NVidia link to this card - [url]
I went to the HP site but it doesn't say anywhere in the specs of what the Memory Clock is or the Memory Bandwidth of the included GeForce GT 130 card. For the Memory Clock and Memory Bandwidth, I really hope it's using both the GDDR3.
I am looking at the HP DV4I video card and cannot find out anything about this card online. I see info on the desktop version but the mobility version seems to be new. Would this card be OK for light gaming -mostly older titles? Does anyone have this card or know where I can find some benchmarks? I know it's not top of the line. It's not even listed on notebookcheck.
I bought a dv9730nr about a year and a half ago and never had any problems with it until a week ago. I was playing PES 2010 and suddenly, after the menu screen the screen went to black, everything froze and this weird "color" barcode appeared on top of the screen. I freaked out and rebooted the laptop, but it didn't even show the bootsplash and the "barcode" still appeared on top of the pitch black screen... after a couple of tries, I could get it to show the bootsplash and actually managed to system-restore it. Then it crashed again and I had to repeat the process.
When I actually got it working, I tested it again with a different game, and this time it gave me the nvlddmkm driver error and a BSOD. After the reboot, there was this ugly barcode again, so I had to repeat the "process" (rebooting time and time again until bootsplash appeared). Though it worked for a couple of days, yesterday I tried to watch a video and it froze, no nvlddmkm error, just the black screen and the color barcode. It took me hours to get around that and when I thought everything was fine (as fine as things could be, anyway), surfing the net and watching some images... bam, the screen went to black and I had to force a shutdown. Again, ugly barcode on top after I rebooted... but this time I have been trying since yesterday to get around it and do a system restore but to no avail - every single time I reboot, there's this black screen with those vertical color lines...........
