VGA card uprade

I know it sounds strange, but I found on the internet that there are some laptops that can be upgraded (VGA card).

My product is HP Pavilion g6-2288sx Notebook PC. I have 4 GB of ram, 320 GB drive and processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core i3 - 3110M. For more details about this product, you can visit this website: -.

The question is if my system is scalable or not so just.

Thank you MNUH.


Some of them can, and many of them cannot. My old Dell XPS 17 has 2 video cards and I can update both (must be the same in order to work properly). Unfortunately, you can not upgrade video card on your machine, it is only equipped with a video chip that is soldered to the motherboard.

Kind regards.

  • Satellite P200D - 11L - VGA card is dead


    My VGA on my Satellite P200D card just died. It has been overheating for a while with several abrupt closing of the bottom, but I have finals. This model has a very poor cooling, the design is very underrated. I thought that there was dirt on the inside, but when I took it out it was not. It was clean. The cooling block disappeared, but clean.

    Someone know what video card is compatible with my laptop and where can I get a cheap replacement?

    The serial number of my laptop: Satellite P200D - 11L, S/n: 97397677K
    My VGA card details: VGA BOARD M76 256 S/N: K000056620

    Thanks for any help.

    To be honest I don't think that you can choose between several different graphics cards. I have the same model of laptop, use it for 3 years now and it works perfectly so I don't agree with your opinion on bad cooling. Who knows how to use it?

    On the design of the portable equipment, it's that it is really difficult to find spare parts, except the RAM or HARD drive. You can find the whole motherboard, but I don't think you can order somewhere new graphics as part separately. In this case the whole motherboard will be exchanged.

    Try eBay. Maybe you will be lucky and find something.



    I'm currently using a GeForce FX5200 PCI 128 MB VGA card on my pc and it worked very well for many years, today I bought the GeForce FX5500 PCI VGA 256 MB card and I had six beeps with red light flushing flushing (video error) on start-up after installing it.

    When I drove to the store to return the card, they tested it for me and it worked perfectly on other machines, but this still does not work on mine. Is there something that I should change or configure it to work?

    If this card is not compatible with my model, please advise on a good upgrade for Compaq dc7100 slimline Desktop VGA card which is 256 MB or higher.

    Thank you

    SneedoGP, if you are certain that the card is installed properly, it may be that the power supply unit (PSU) has not enough power to power the card correctly.  The PSU is 200W.  I don't know all the cards that will be an upgrade that will work correctly with this power.

  • Can Tecra M8 - I install a VGA card?

    Hi, I was a little disappointed with my purchase of my laptop Tecra M8 because most of the games don't work correctly. My question is weather or not I can install a VGA card to make the games such as Call of Duty 4, Warcraft Frozen Throne and World of Warcraft to work properly on my laptop. I would appreciate a response thank you.

    Also if you can suggest a model of graphics card, it would be useful. Thank you.


    This is not possible because the graphics chip you have is soldered on the motherboard and t can be exchanged.
    It is perhaps useful for you:

    Furthermore, a Tecra laptop is not designed for games.

  • VGA card Proplem after installing Win 7

    my HP Pavilion dv6-6c60se

    When I install Win 7 its market not recognize intel Amd card or in Device Manager the task intel and Amd card are named a standard VGA card, please help


    Please reread my post above...

    DO not install the driver from Intel. It is the graphics card Intel for laptops with only models.

    The AMD driver installed two video drivers as he says on the information page of the driver AMD, which I copied and pasted below...


    This package provides the AMD graphics driver high definition (HD) and Catalyst Control Center for models of laptop computers that are running an operating system supported. For laptops equipped with switchable graphics modes, this package includes drivers for two graphics (GPU). Switchable graphics allow users to switch between a graphical power mode (normally used under the power of the battery) and a mode of graphics performance. If the video output high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) is supported, this package also installs the HDMI Audio Driver.
  • Problem with VGA card after Windows Update

    Hi all.

    Today I start to address a problem with me second VGA card (Matrox G200 G2 + / QUADP-PL/7) after a yesterday updated windows.
    I am able to see the other 4 monitors, but with a yellow triangle.
    You thing has remove updates yesterday going to solve my problem?

    PS:If you have an another idea is welcome

    Thank you and best regards.


    Please contact Microsoft Community.

    This problem may occur if the VGA card drivers are updated after the installation of Windows updates. I suggest to follow the steps below and check to see if problem persists.

    1. Click Start and stop in the search box, type Device Manager.
    2. On top, on the start menu, click on "Device Manager".
    3. In "Device Manager", double click "Graphics card" expand. "."
    4. Click on "display Matrox G200 G2 + / QUADP-PL/7 ' and click 'properties '.
    5. In properties, click on the "Drivers" tab and check if the option 'Return to the version' is 'active '. If so click on "Roll back" to restore the previous version driver.

    Note: If "Roll back" is greyed out, then see the article restoration of the system;

    Warning: When you use system restore to restore the computer to a previous state, the programs and updates that you have installed are removed.

    Important: try to restore your system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly.

  • How can I use DirectX or DirectDraw on a VGA card?

    Hello everyone.

    I'm Justin, or LTJKilla. Recently a good friend of mine gave me a laptop it would sell. The laptop has some age on it, but I was able to put Windows 7 on it. The laptop works, (when he wants) and I have no problem playing games like Diablo 1, StarCraft, Quake and many older games in this regard. For this reason I went and bought Diablo 2, however, I can not play, because I don't have DirectX or DirectDraw on my computer. I tried to install, but it doesn't allow me to do. After some research, I found that I use a VGA video card or a standard VGA card. After some research MORE, I used a program called dxdiag. He said that these are not available. Help, please? I don't want my $15 to get lost. :)
    Thanks in advance.

    Win7 actually installs with three versions of DX - 9, 10 and 11, but did not have all the
    files. The best way to update is to use the Web Installer. This will install only the "disappeared".
    DX files.
    The full Installer Redistributable (June2010) is the best option if there are corrupted files as it
    replace all the DX files.

    Direct links to the two options-
    Download details: DirectX end-user performance

    Download details - Microsoft Download Center - DirectX Redist (June 2010)

    -If you have not yet installed the 'important' updates of Windows you should do the same,
    particularly in sp1, but there are several other related games updated.

    -Diablo 2 also needs a fix for the problems of color. The fix below also makes higher resolutions.
    It still can't help as integrated graphics will not Open GL (Intel HD does not), but if
    Diablo runs so you can still be OK.

    Glide3 to OpenGL Wrapper

    -The following is a list of the Direct X .dll you when files are updated.
    Go to Windows / System 32 folder (and SysWOW64 if you have 64-bit).
    They are in alphabetical order and will start with d3dx9 - 24 43 >. Then d3dx10 - 33 43 > & finally d3dx11 - 42 43 >.
    There was also - d3d9, d3d10 and d3d11 these come before the D3Dcompilers - 33 > 43.There are also three new XInput1 - 1 > 3.
    There are more files DX, but these are most of the graphs related to Direct X .dll


  • Re: Problem with Qosmio F30-140 VGA card

    Hi all

    My Qosmio F30 suddenly developed a green lines/pixels on the screen. The same problem exists even before logining windows.
    The card (nvidia go 7600) video under the device manager has a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark inside. I tried reinstalling the VGA driver, but nothing has changed.
    I think it is a hardware problem (GPU), but I don't know if there is anyway to fix it. Please notify.

    It's certainly the hardware problem. What you can do to confirm this is to connect external monitor to your laptop to see if the same thing will happen. If so, the GPU is defective and if not display's troublemaker.

    What you can do to solve this problem? Not much. Material exchange is your only solution.

    I want to say clearly that portable computers technology design is not the same as on the desktop and if you have a good experience with desktop computers, you'll know that upgrading the graphics cards is not so problematic, but on laptops, the situation is very different.

    Laptops design and construction doesn't allow such flexibility for upgrades, upgrading the graphics card is not possible.
