Can Qosmio G50 - I replace the graphics card?


I would like to know if it is possible to replace the graphics card in the default value of G50 (9600gt) with a better (for example 9800gt).
Thank you for your help and information.

I am dissatisfied with the performance of default graphics card. Is there another way to improve performance?



I m wondering really that you are not satisfied with the performance of the 9600M GT graphics card. What games do you play?

Friend of me has the same graphics card in his notebook and it can play all the games. For a laptop, the 3D performance are really good I must say. :)

  • Can I replace the graphics card on Tecra M2?

    I have a Tecra M2 and the display shows verticle lines across the entire screen. These lines also appear when plugged upward on a normal screen.
    I checked Device Manager and it says that the nvidia card "cannot start." The problems had me uninstall and won't reinstall, no luck.
    Next option is to unplug and then plug back in, but is it possible? If it is separate would rather just replace the card. Thanks for any help.


    From your description of the error, this really sounds like a malfunction of the GPU (graphics processing unit).
    Unfortunately, it is a serious offense and if a replacement of material you will not be able to fix this :(

    It is a case value because you can not only replace the graphics card. You need to replace the whole motherboard because the GPU is soldered on the Board and cannot be removed easily.

    There is nothing to my buddy.
    Seems that you need to contact a support technician.

    Good luck

    There is no graphics removable, replaceable and upgradable 'cards' in your laptop.

    The graphics quite part of the motherboard, and to improve the graphics, you would have to see if there is a motherboard listed in the guide service and maintenance for your laptop that has better graphics.

    Replace the motherboard would be a labor intensive and expensive project.

  • You can replace the graphics card on an Acer Aspire 5920?

    If so what card would be compatible? I currently have an Intel GM965 Express Chipset, and unfortunately Intel stopped supporting this video card in 2009. I am running windows XP Professional service pack 3

    My computer lists the specifications as:

    Intel (r) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU
    T5450 @1. 66 GHz
    1.67 GHz, 2.99 GB RAM
    Physical address extension

    I hope that I do not need a new computer just to get my hands on a better graphics card, but if it is not possible that's life. It will be that nothing that is more important than a new computer.

    It is not possible to replace the graphics card.  It is part of the motherboard.

    In addition, the motherboard is compatible only with the current graphics chip.

  • Tecra M2: Can play a game of the graphics card?

    It seems that play Flight Simulator could destroy the graphics card on the laptop! I never thought this would be possible. I gave a friend my old Tecra M2 (as a wedding gift) which he also uses to play FS9. A few years ago, he had to have the motherboard replaced (Fortunately it's still under warranty then) because it has become defective. This has happened while he was playing FS9. I never thought that at that time.

    It seems like the same problem comes up again, but this time the laptop isn't under warranty anymore. Nothing has been changed on the video card to "accelerate" or "chip" or another - it is standard at the factory. The latest drivers are installed for the Nvidia GeForce FX Go5200 32 M / 64 M and the portable computer has 1 GB of RAM (and a lot of space on the HARD disk).

    At startup, the Toshiba logo has green vertical lines. The Windows logo also has the same symptoms, the vertical lines. I was able to boot in safe mode, a few times, then it started normally (I was onto a winner of thought), but now it seems just blue screen and reboot after Windows Logo (even if I didn't no reset in case of failure). After the reboot, I got a blue screen (BSOD not usual) with the next STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0 x 01010101, 0xF7911378, 0xF7911074).

    Any ideas? I'd be really upset if I found out that a game could physically cause a motherboard to replace on a laptop! If this is true, can someone tell me how to prevent it in the future? I have a Tecra M3 and I don't want to happen to me either!

    Thank you!


    Hi mate,

    the fact is that I would NEVER play FS9 even on my machine which is a Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz with 1 GB of RAM and a geforce 7800GS.
    Flight Simulator 9 needs AS many system resources and in your case it s like you take 500 tons of steel and throw on a single donkey.

    The M2 is a pure business machine and not scheduled to play these games like FS9 needing beasts of machines to run * correctly *. Maybe the older games are playable, but I think that it s right that FS9 could probably damaged your graphics unit (overheating).
    You won´t move swap the motherboard and let your FS9 fingers when you hold an M2 or M3 or a set of non-game in your hands.

    The man, who is ill, the poor M2 then FS9... :D

    Clear from the statement to me: Yes, a game CAN probably damage a portable system, but not for sure! And an M2/M3 is not to play these games. Rather spent the money for a system with a Geforce 8600 Core2Dou or something similar.
