Satellite Pro M30 - can I change the video card?

Is it possible to upgrade the video card for M30?

Also noticed lately that the cooler starts roaring Java =. =' can it be connected to my (now defunct) video card or I just better clean the cooler?



The video card can't be updated because it s soldered onto the motherboard.
Here is a document Toshiba upgrade the CPU and the GPU:

But why you want to upgrade the video card?
However, you clean your laptop if you use the jet of compressed air. This could blow out the dust from the cooling fans.

Good bye

    I recently received a Portege M700 as a gift and I didn't really like the Intel supplied with the laptop video card. If I want to change the video card to a more adapted to more modern games. Something like an nVidia or ATi video card. I don't think it's possible, but if this is the case, could someone answer?

    Thanks in advance.

    > On the other hand, it is possible to change the whole motherboard, and if it is possible, it would cost a lot?
    The replacement of the motherboard is possible, but it can be replaced with the same card published by Toshiba for this series of laptop.
    In addition, the replacement of the motherboard is a costly business because the mobo is one of the expensive laptop parts

  • Satellite L500-1GK - can I change the graphics card?

    HEY! I need help

    I'm a graphic designer and use Satellite L500-1GK. I found that the VGA is not good enough. The resolution is not really good enough for a designer

    Manufacturer of the graphics card: Intel®
    type: Mobile Intel® GMA 4500 M
    memory: available total graphics memory can be up to 1 340 MB with 3 GB of memory and 32-bit operating system system or 1 759 MB with a 64 - bit OS system memory and 4 GB
    memory type: shared

    Is that what I can do to get the best resolution? Whatever he rib that I am able to change the VGA? is there a solution with that can you help me?


    Unfortunately it is not possible to change the graphics card. It s fixed/soldered on the motherboard and can't be exchanged. Sorry, but it is not possible to s.

    But if you only need a better resolution of the screen, you can connect an external monitor. Here, you can work with a higher resolution if your monitor supports it.

    Usually it of not possible to change the GPU on laptop computers.
    The laptop is configured with this graphics card and after replacement, it possible s that the BIOS will not accept this card and laptop does not start.

    But why you want to replace it?

    It seems that there s a new notebook with HD-DVD player and a great graphics card.
    The replacement does not really increase the graphics performance!
    You know, replacement is very risky, and if you open the notebook, you will lose the warranty!
    It is not worth!

  • Re: Satellite Pro A40 - can I change the HARD disk or the same model?

    Hi Forum,

    do I have to wait for safe trouble by changing the hard disk between the following laptops:

    old or damaged laptop:
    SPA40 model PSA45E - 0013T - number GR
    Series No. 34127882 H

    new/own laptop
    SPA40 PSA45E-001VM-GR model number
    Series N0.34117607H

    Thanks in advance for your advice


    You can do it. No problem at all. Hard drives are not specific model of laptop parts and with hard drives is important compatibility.
    On the new laptop, which you can use different hard drives. Important is that use you compatible HARD drive.

    Just do it. After Exchange of HARD drive install Os again and everything will be OK.

  • Satellite Pro A60: Can I put the graphics card ATI Radeon 7000

    I have an A60 Satellite with the Mobility Radeon 7000 Graphics Pro. I play world of Warcraft, but it won't work on the laptop, because this graphical configuration is not supported. Is is possible to upgrade to a better?

    I was told that it is not possible because the chip is attached to the motherboard.

    Or Nick

    Unfortunately, the graphics card laptop cannot be upgraded. It is simply not possible due to the architecture of the laptop. Laptops are just different and you should know that only a few parts such as the memory or HARD drive are extensible.

    You can try to use a card external chart like this for example:

    But I m not sure if it s really an option.

  • 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:

    You can't go to the graphics chip. It will not work and the BIOS would not accept.

    In your case, you will need to replace the motherboard. :(, cela peut être une affaire très coûteuse...) You know
