Update graphics card on Satellite A60
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. :)
I have a satellite a60 652.
I want to improve it with new ram and graficcard.
can I use more than 1, 5 GB of ram? later with an update of the bios?
and if I can change the graficcard? If the answer is Yes... What is the best card I can actually use?
or is there a map which is almost a geforce 7600 or 6600 (or ati 9700) I can use?
Thank you for the help
PS excuse my English ;)
> I want to upgrade the ram and the new graphics card
Upgrading RAM is possible but the graphics card is unable to be updated!
If you want to upgrade the memory you could update to 1536 MB max.
The A60 supports 512MB internal memory and it is so that one memory slot where the extra RAM module can be inserted.
These modules are compatible:
PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)
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 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
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.
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 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 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.
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.

I recently bought a laptop from my uni (Toshiba Satellite pro A200). I tried to install a game, but an eroor had just told me, "something something excellorater graphics card"
I would like to know isit possible to install a gforce on this laptop graphics card to make the games work.
If Yes, what is the best way to do it?
Upgrading the graphics card is not possible.
You can not insert another graphics card.
What you need to do is; try updating the graphics card driver. Maybe it helps to run the game on this laptop
