Can I upgrade the video card on Satellite Pro L20?

Can I change video card in Satellite Pro L20?



Short and simply answer: no, you can't

The graphics card is a small chip that attaches to the Board. Do not compare the graphics card for laptops and a graphics card for desktop PC.
You can update or change is what HDD, memory modules.

  • Upgrade the video card on Satellite X 200-20 g

    Hello everyone

    I'll find a way to have my 8700M GT updated on my X 200 laptop.
    I paid for it more than 2000 and I paid for 2 years warranty.
    A few months later, I discovered that some of the new Toshiba are equipped with 9700 m GTS!

    I know that the X 200-20 G is having a mxm graphics card which is removable to be upgraded (not being is not part of the motherboard).

    I couldn't find anywhere in the Toshiba site, where I can ask to buy a new graphics card, or if I can send my laptop and ask for an upgrade price.
    I suppose someone who has paid a sum of money for Toshiba can be listened to, or get a special offer to swap its model to the newest one after even not a year of use.

    I really want to upgrade the video card, and I don't really know where to find advice or information about it, other than on the side of Toshiba.

    Thanks to everyone or admin, to let me know how I should do, or process.

    Kind regards

    You can install any power supply and any card, but you will be unhappy.   You must specify a goal. If this is the game, enter a title.  With some info, a better suggestion can be made.  As reference, look at my configs listed below.

    The vehicle currently has graphics Intel HD 4000, but I was wondering if, because it is not as fast as it should to play games like the Sims 3, which could be improved. It is a Windows 7 64 bit


    The video card is unable to be upgraded without a complete replacement of the motherboard.

    The cost of making such a replacement would likely exceed the cost of trading or selling your laptop and buy one with the desired graphic solution.

    Below is the link to the service manual.

    Motherboards supported is listed in Chapter 3.

    Based on the specifications of your laptop, the best video solution is the motherboard with part # 686930-001.

    The cost of this motherboard is $447,45.

    Not worth it, IMO.


  • Can I upgrade the graphics card on Satellite A200?

    Hi friends,

    I have a Satellite A200-13O with disk HARD 120 GB, Intel Centrino Duo 1.8 GHz, 1 GB ram and Intel 945GM chipset.

    It's not even 6 months, it was a birthday gift for me of the 18th, I want 2 upgrade his graphics card. Is this possible?

    Can I overclock the system?

    Thank you



    Unfortunately, NO, since the graphics chip is welded (wired) on the motherboard. To play games, you can buy another machine with a better graphics card (Geforce 8700 M GT is very good).

    Sorry mate, but theres no chance of getting the best performance from your machine about games.

  • I have a desktop hp a305 pc. can I upgrade the video card?

    He joined the XGP intel.  I can provide all the system information, but I would like to know if it's possible before I look into it further.

    You can upgrade the PC with a PCI video card. Are you sure that it is useful to spend the money on a PC which is about five generations behind current PC? If your plans are for games, then you should be aware that even with a video card updated it does not very well more recent games with a high SPF. The biggest factor limiting the CPU and operating system.

    As always, the choice is yours.  Most of the video on this page Newegg cards will work. I suggest that you stay with the lowest prize cards, but choose as much memory as possible.

    I recommend saving up for a new PC system more current rather than invest the money in which one might stop working shortly.

    Kind regards


  • Can be upgraded the firmware on my Satellite Pro A120 to accept SDHC cards

    I have a Satellite Pro A120 and use the slot for SD card frequently, however, the capacity of memory cards can sometimes be restrictive, is it possible to update the firmware for SDHC cards and if so, how.


    Unfortunately not possible since it s card reader has NO firmware and it s a stand-alone device that has nothing to do with the BIOS (firmware) of the machine.

    So, if she can't simply do not support. :/

    See you soon

  • Can I replace the graphics card on Satellite Pro A100

    Hi all

    Just a quick question about the graphics card in my Satellite pro a100 computer laptop. I heard different stories about this.

    The ATI RAdeon Mobility x 1400 card can be replaced on this laptop. If so how easy it is to do and how I could tell which cards would be compatible?

    Thank you


    You cannot remove, replace or update the graphics card.
    The graphics chip is attached to the motherboard and it of not possible to remove it.
    In addition, the motherboard is compatible only with the current graphics chip.

    Good bye

  • Re: Satellite X 200 - can I upgrade the video card?


    I have the X 200 23 G

    I wonder I can update my videocard (NVIDIA GeForce 8600 M GT) or change it?

    Thank you.

    Hi, unfortunately you are unable to spend not generic parts in a laptop as they are designed.

    The only parts you can upgrade are the processor, memory, ODD, and HARD drive. But even in this case, not all components are compatible. For example, if the BIOS cannot recognize the new processor, the system may not start, or it will overheat, or operate at a slower speed.

    I found an article on the Toshiba site there explaining more in detail:
