Update graphics card on Satellite A200
Is it possible to change the graphics card on the Satellite A200 and if its possible how he and witch card to use?
I agree with the statement made by the above user.
The point is that the laptops card mother layout is completely different and the slots are not the same as on the PC desktop motherboards.
The GPU chip is mainly fixed and soldered on the motherboard and cannot be removed on simply average.
There are also a few other reasons for which the graphics card can not be updated but I n t want to write a full A4 page now.
You know. The point is; It s is not possible.
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?
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 use a Satellite A60 (I don't know exactly what type of A60) and I am wanting to increase my performance by playing games and using other programs. I plan to buy an upgrade of RAM 1 GB because I know it is compatiable and I don't know how to install it, but I don't know anything about graphics cards. I would like to know if is possible put level - and where can I buy an upgrade so that it would be reasonable to upgrade to. Thanks in advance.
I Don t know if that new users do not use the search function but to the explain it once again (and again):
It s NOT possible, because the graphics card is SOUDEE & CABLE to the motherboard.
Which means: no, you cannot update the graphics card.
Update your RAM and be happy. :)
Someone please tell me if its possible to install the anthers graphics card in my laptop. I have a Satellite * A200-1Z3 * who has embedded display adapter (MOBILE INTEL (R) 965 Express Chipset Family.
Something like this is unfortunately not possible. The graphics card is part of the motherboard. If the graphics card is defective, the whole motherboard must be exchanged.
Boyfriend sorry but there is nothing to do.
I recently bought a Satellite P200-13Z and am curious to know if there is any anvliable update for the integrated graphics card that would break not guaranteed.
Does anyone know of a product that I could buy?
Please don t waste a time to search for any portable computers internal graphics card.
You cannot upgrade the graphics card on the laptop.
The GPU is soldered on the map and you will not be able to replace it!
Technology of laptops is just different as a desktop PC and hardware upgrades are almost impossible.
You can upgrade a device like RAM or HARD disk but not a GPU (graphic processor, card)
PS: of course, you will lose warranty if going to disassemble the laptop
Is it possible to update the graphics card on my laptop (P200D PSPBLE)
I just installed Photoshop CS5 and it is said that the graphics card is good enough.
Before starting to discuss this control please this document
I have a Satellite Pro A120-129. He will not play some of the newer games and im trying to find out if I can upgrade the graphics card. Anyone know?
I think the answer you will find in this document
Can I update my graphics card in my laptop?
If so, what type of card can I buy and where to buy?
If this is not the case, how can I increase the use of the memory of the graphics chips on board?
When I check with the graphics controller, it shows
Maximum graphics memory: 64 M
minimum graphics memory: 15 M
graphics memory in use: 17 M
officially, you can't put the graphics card.
Theoretical, you need a graphics chip with the same chipset and a driver that works on laptops. It is not easy to find (if it really exists).
Then I suggest to not not to do that.
On your on-board video memory, you don't need to do anything. The card will automatically take as much as it takes up to 64 MB of memory.
Hi all, 1st post so my apologies if this is the right place.
I'm new to the world of laptops and I # have just purchaased an A120-151, to replace my desktop computer, but I've heard nasty stories that you can not improve the graphics cards in laptops.
As a player it is a little shock. Can someone please enlighten me and it if it is possible to upgrade, if someone could recommend an option for me it would be in the same range as desktop nVidia FX 5200 geforce...
See you soon!
Usually, if you want to buy something again, you should take some info about it at first. This nasty stories are just the facts and nothing unusual for mobile computing. Unusual is that your local dealer did not ask you for what purpose you need for laptop.
Why you haven't posted anything on laptops and games until you have purchased your Satellite?
Can someone give me a list of a toshiba satellite p25 s-507-compatible graphics cards? for example, is a "nvidia geforce 6800 go" ultra compatible?
10 x a lot
I guess you want to know which graphics cards are compatible, because you want to upgrade the graphics card. Am I wrong?
As you probably know, mobile technology is not the same as the desktop PC simply and it s is not possible to replace or change the graphics card.
Especially chips are set on the map and it of not possible to improve it. Also the BIOS, chipset utilities and other application would not accept the new graphics card.
I have a laptop L300D - 222 and I was wondering if I could change my graphics card ATI Radeon 3100 with a better, faster version.
Because it has 4 GB of RAM and is fast. It has a shared graphics card which includes a dedicated 256 RAM graphics card. Could you please tell where I can get it done if possible and where I can get a new graphics card than this laptop?
I would appreciate it if you could also tell me an average cost of a chart of the laptop, if possible.
See you soon.
I can see Akuma already answered your question, but here is an interesting link http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB9401AX0001R01.htm
I want to have the new catalyst (7.11) installed on my laptop, it seems that Vista does not recognize it as a new driver, but he said that present one (probably 7.09) is up-to-date.
What I would do in this situation? I heard this is a common problem when Vista does not accept new graphics card on laptop drivers - what then?
The laptop manufacturers used different and all display drivers are suitable for mobile computing. Design of portable computers is quite different, and all hardware components are placed on the square. Laptop to the manufacturer should take care of the overheating and protection of equipment.
Using a few other drivers can result in equipment overheating, sudden closures or even damage the hardware. Because of this, there is a mechanism to avoid installing the non-Toshiba display drivers.
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 had a problem with updates on my Toshiba Satellite A200-W00 Machine. I have two specific updates that fail permanently.
I have been in contact with Microsoft staff who sent me troubleshooting step by step to try, but I had no chance. These updates are:
* Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer 7 in Windows Vista (KB956390) *.
* Update for Media Center for Windows Vista (KB955519) *.
* Update for Windows Vista (KB953155) *.
It was one of his emails
The problem description, I understand that several updates could not be installed and you have tried a few troubleshooting suggestions, but the problem persists. If there was any misunderstanding, let me know.
Faced with this situation, the problem may occur if the system files are corrupted. To continue troubleshooting, please first temporarily uninstall security programs and test the update again. If still no, please, take your time and try the following steps to fix the system.
Although this operation will not remove or modify the files and installed programs, I suggest always that we back up important files before you do. In addition, we may have to reinstall the device drivers after this operation. Thank you for your understanding.
1 start the computer and access to Windows Vista.
2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the DVD drive of the computer.
3. use one of the following procedures, as applicable:
If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the now Setup screen. Click on install now.
If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:
a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive: \setup.exe then click OK.
Note: The drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD.
b. click on install now.
4. When you reach the type of installation you want screen, click upgrade to upgrade the Windows Vista system files.
Once finished, try to update again.
Please, try the above steps and let me know the results soon. If there are any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact me.
I look forward to your reply.
However, Vista was preinstalled on my laptop and obviously I don't have the disk. Anyone knows where I can get hold of it or have the same problem with the similar updates. I tried to disable my antivirus, firewall, antispyware drive controls, clean ups etc and nothing.
Any help would be appreciated.
You didn t receive a Toshiba Recovery disk?
Then maybe your laptop was equipped with HARD drive recovery option?
Please see your manual how to start the recovery procedure.
According to your announcement of some system files are damaged and it may be necessary to reinstall the entire operating system.
I tried to update my bios on satellite A200 and then I start the update it says "the size of the ROM file is incorrect.
Can someone help me with this?
What should I do?
I think I can help you.
I remember this error message. Some of the users of the forum have posted a solution.
For example here:
It seems that it s not a serious error is displayed because the BIOS file was not properly extracted.
