Equium P300-16 t and update graphic card

Hi all.

I was thinking about upgrading my graphics on the computer laptop satellite P300-16 t. I have not opened yet so my question is, has anyone here opened this machine? If so, is there a way to install a dedicated graphics card? i.e. the pcie? Could someone please advise if there are institutions in the machine to upgrade my graphics?

My gratitude in advance for any help.


In General, update graphics card is not supported and cannot be done.
Toshiba has written about it in http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm

A common problem with portable mobile is the heat and to built the effective cooling system. Each laptop has optimized cooling system. More powerful graphics card will produce more heat, and this balanced hardware platform will not properly work. Can result in permanent damage from overheating or material.

Maybe stupid comment now, but if you need more powerful your laptop sell on eBay and buy a new one.

    I have a hp pavilion a6325 and my graphics card is fried what graphics card is compatible? the old card is a nvidea geforce8500gt but these seem difficult to obtain now. If I wanted to update that is not compatible. C.P. specification is as follows.

    Yes, you could install maps better with a more solid food.

    The card I have chosen for you will work with the P/S of 300W to your PC.

    I have never installed a power improved in any of my PC, so I can't be a great help for you there.

    But if you get the right one that matches all connections from your PC, and fits in place of the current one, you, you should not need to buy anything others.

  • Power supply with updated graphics card update

    I am considering buying the HPE-150 t with an improved graphics card standard:

    1 GB ATI Radeon HD 5770 [2 DVI, HDMI, DP, VGA adapter]

    I went on http://support.asus.com/PowerSupplyCalculator/PSCalculator.aspx?SLanguage=en-us to the appropriate power needed for this gauge system, and it recommends a minimum 450 Watt power supply.

    If I ended up buying the HPE-150 t with updated graphics card, I get a power supply improved to compensate for the increase of energy consumption?

    Here are the specs of your motherboard.  It indicates a 350 Watt PSU.  However, if you scroll down to hardware options, you will see a 460 watt power supply associated with the 5770 video card.

  • Satellite P850 138 - updated graphics card is possible?

    My Toshiba Satellite P850 138 comes with an nvidia GT 630 M graphics card. I know to replace the graphics card (if it is even possible) is a long-term work... but can someone tell me if I CAN upgrade the graphics card and if yes, what options are available?

    Very often on this forum, we discussed on GPU, or replacement upgrade and you will find many topics with the same theme.
    You have a mobile unit and upgrade possibilities are very limited due to many different factors.
    Generally the upgrade GPU is not supported and you should not experiment.

  • Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b003sm: Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b003sm processor and upgraded graphics card.


    I should probably start by listing the specs of the laptop. So here it is:

    Model: Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b003sm

    Series: [personal information]

    Product: C6T29EA #BED

    Processor: Intel Core i5-3317U (1.7 GHz)

    Memory: 8 GB RAM

    Graphics card: GeForce GT 630 m 2 GB memory

    OS: Windows 7 x 64

    So the question, well not really a problem, but recently I have noticed that my laptop has been strugling to run the latest games coming out to the point where some games even on setting him down still have very low FPS.

    Then I thought to replace my CPU and graphics card because these two seem to be the issue.

    Now, I got the user guide but it was provided on a CD while my laptop is not a CD ROM  So, I have been unable to determine what kind of a slot processor use my laptop.

    So I was wondering if anyone of you could help me determine if I can replace the processor and the graphics card on my laptop and if I can provide some suggestions to what I should look at, since I read that chaning a CPU on a laptop is sticky bussines.

    Thank you in advance.

    Also if there is more information needed please tell me so that I can add.

    Please have look at the below information shown for the processor upgrade

    http://h10032.www1.HP.com/CTG/manual/c03733729 [Go to Page 1]

  • Satellite Pro P300 - update graphic card and CPU

    I have a Satellite Pro P300 and I was wondering if the CPU or the graphics card can be improved?

    I really like my laptop, but an upgrade is imminent and before I take the plunge I just want to see if it is all options other than a new laptop.


    Processor and graphics card update is not supported and there is no list with compatible processors. If everything is on your own risk. In the worst case a new processor will not be recognized from the motherboard or BIOS, probably you need a new module of cooling too so I wouldn t this

    In addition, the graphics card is attached to the motherboard and cannot be exchanged.

    Sorry mate, but there is no possibility to upgrade the graphics card built into your machine, as the graphics card is "wired", which means that the integrated graphics chip is soldered on the motherboard.

    So, you could upgrade RAM HDD & to increase performance, but who are the only options to get more performance out of your machine.

  • Update graphics card on Equium A60


    I want to update my graphics card, but I don't know how, or what graphics card would work in my computer. It is an Equium A60 and if someone could help me I would be extremely grateful

    Thank you

    Hi Kit,

    Unfortunately, you will not be able to update your graphics card. This is because the graph is built into your main card in order to save space in Notepad. You will find that your graphics card uses probably RAM integrated your main RAM modules and also specially adapted drivers that are specific to your laptop computer.

    Some suppliers of graphics chips allow you to change the allocation of RAM by changing the UMA buffer specified in your BIOS.

  • Satellite P10 and the graphics card driver updates


    I'm a newbie on this forum, but let's get to the point. I have Toshiba Satellite PSP10E (PIV 2.8HT 800 Mhz, 1 GB of system memory bus speed and UNFORTUNATELY a GF 5600go...).
    My (not only) problem is that Toshiba use engineering video BIOS version and it does not have the latest drivers for the geforce series. The most up-to-date driver that really works is the last of the series 5xxx... so you can see that none of the newer games can be run with a performance on this map... because older drivers don't use really not (available at directx9.0) 2.0 pixel shader. It would not be a problem if Toshiba would give an update not only BIOS system, but also the bios video (new system BIOS contains the same old video bios.

    I really had to settle for playing games that are 2 years old? First of all pay a lot of money for a witch of the computer has enough power to run some new but don't care support Toshiba for this...

    I was the proud owner of a Toshiba laptop, but I'm not! If I had to choose again, I decide to buy computer Toshiba...
    My Question: is that Toshiba will do something with this problem? Someone knows how to help? Thanks for any help (I have not found such a problem in this forum, sorry if it has been the front sign) and sorry for my English (hope that's understandable)
    My video Bios is: v4.31.20.56.A6

    [Edited by: admin]


    We know that you can not install the drivers downloaded from the download page of GF because of the restriction of material. It's not only the Toshiba models, but also on other producers of portable and if you visit the download page of graphics cards, it is always recommended to download drivers designed by the manufacturers of portable.

    I think that nobody can explain why it's because I'm sure you know the reason. The performance of the graphics card will always be a topic of discussion and you will always want to have maximum performance for games with laptop, although performance may not be the same as on the desktop where you have the possibility to change the graphics card and install the latest drivers.

    Because of this, I think that it is really unnecessary to some turbulence here. Believe me, you can buy what you want, but after two or three years you will be always satisfied with something.

    In any case, good luck and enjoy life!

  • CCC and AMD graphics card failed after the driver update

    I have a HP Pavilion dv6 laptop 6 c-32eg.

    I recently tried to update my GPU driver, as was necessary to run a particular program (oclHashcat, if you're interested). I downloaded the installer from hereand he ran. It looks good, but after the required reboot, the screen resolution has been set at 800 x 600, instead of the usual 1366 x 768. Then, I got an error message saying something in the sense of "your AMD driver could not be installed because you do not have the required equipment. In Device Manager the GPU was something like "usinig windows has stopped this device because it has reported an error."

    If I try to open the CCC, the program runs for several minutes, with a relatively high CPU usage in the Task Manager, then the message "' Catalyst Control Center: the host Application has stopped working". "

    I have now tried different ways to solve this problem, which none have worked. Try to download a driver on the AMD website did not work, because the site said that the pilot was not appropriate for a computer with switchable graphics.

    My laptop doesn't seem to be using the AMD GPU as you try to run games as a test done drip slowly and with a minimum resolution.

    My laptop has doubled (switchable CCC) graphics:

    -AMD Radeon HD 7690 M XT card, with a 8.882.2.3000 driver version and date 30/09/2011.

    -And Intel HD Graphics Family, with, apparently, the same driver version and date as shown above. I can't know exactly what kind of GPU Intel it is.

    I also tried to update the graphic driver Intel, to see if that would fix the problem at all, but it made it worse: the screen become very red and low resolution. I fixed that by returning to a point just before performed system restore. Unfortunately, I don't think to do this before initially updated drivers.

    So, my question is: how to I find the full use of two graphics cards?

    Here is a copy - paste of my information system:

    There may be a 3rd option left that you can try for one more set to gpu driver updates, but I would first get your system to a State where the switchable graphics work correctly.

    Try restoring the system first.

    If this does not work, the driver package AMD (containing two gpu drivers) you need can be downloaded from HP on the following link.


    In this case being able to find a game more set to driver updates, many people with your type of switchable graphics succeeded with the offers on the 3rd party site - I strongly recommend to read the Manual to get an understanding of how it works and why driver signature enforcement must be disabled in order to load these drivers.

  • Qosmio G40 - update graphics card

    Hello world

    I know it works has already answered in October 2009, but I have a few not 100% course info on the upgrade of the graphics cards. Now I have a qosmio g40-10 with nvidia geforce 8600 with 512 video memory. Because this card is purely not enough for the high-end gaming today, I want to update at least 1 GB of video memory. Like many people here, I tried to find some information online but its just waste of time. I asked in each PC store in my town this topic and 60% of them responded that it is possible, but it will cost you so.

    They could not tell exactly witch card should take but logically it will be nvidia series that were used by Toshiba manufacter, what I'll do I will find some young model of Toshiba nvidia cards and will just try to adapt it. Logically that laptops Toshiba chassy is almost the same, of course mounting screws can be different, but ultimately, it's a project. The only problem is the motherboard, I heard that this motherboard is unable to accept certain graphics cards.

    If you have some info on this please let me know.
    Also different (highest card) coz, there will be cooling problem so if you have ideas to solve heating, please share it with me.
    Thanks much adrian

    Hello Adrian

    I guess that you know very well that the possibilities of upgrade on mobile units are very limited; especially GPU or CPU upgrade and laptop manufacturers offer don t any kind of support. Because of the design specific common problem for mobile units is cooling system. More performance means more heat and more heat, compromised of portable computer hardware switch or damage.

    Manufacturers of portable don t support cela and don offers t any helpful info about it. GPU upgrade in my opinion is not a good idea. OK, you can do with your laptop that you want and play a little bit, but I'm afraid that your project is too risky and will not end with success of m.

    If you need a more powerful computer I think it's time for the new portable computer with more powerful hardware. What you think so.

    So, I'm looking for an update to my graphics card. I know that there are 440 GB maps as well with 32 MB on board.
    Can anyone advise me on what to do? Is there a GFX card which adapts instead of 420 go I have atm? I'll be able to add for example 16 MB to 420 go? (probably n00b question)
