Satellite A100 683: can I upgrade the internal card?


can someone tell me if it is possible to replace the original map (3945ABG) of the Satellite A100 683 by a new, n support card (4965AGN)?

I would say that it should be possible since both are mini pci cards and I use Windows Vista (which is a system for the 4965AGN requirement), but it would be nice to have a confirmation before buying this card.

Thanks in advance.




What card do you mean exactly?
Do you mean the LAN or WLan?

I ask because I m not 100% sure what car say you, but to my knowledge only the WLan card is removable!
As you say it s card miniPCI and especially two wires connect the card with the motherboard
Both Brown and white cables connect the WLan antenna.

However, theoretically, it should be possible to use another wireless network card but I see really no reason that these updates.
If you have a Vista compatible driver for your card, then everything should work great.

Good bye

    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:

    Here are the specs of your machine: & lang = to & CC = US & TaskID = 101 & prodSeriesId = 4074269 & prodTypeId = 321957

    He uses: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500 M, which is soldred to the motherboard so practically you can not change because you have to change the motherboard, to buy the new video card, to change the cooling system... all adding up will cost more than a new machine.

    Kind regards.

    Graphics cards cannot be updated simply.

    You will need to replace the motherboard with another which would have better graphics (if available for your model).

    This would cost as much buying a new laptop, so it is probably not a good idea to undertake such a venture.
