i have a hp pavilion ze 4900, an old computer if u ask me:D
anyways i am playing guildwars online(if anyone is familiar with that. i have been able to play for about 2 months now. they don't support anything other than readeon and ati cards. so far i have been able to get away with my intel 82852/82855 GM/GME graphics controller. now all of a sudden i come up with an unrecoverable error and the games freezes up. i was wondering if there would be any way a person could swap out videocards on a laptop. i tried looking on manuf. support but they didn't say anything. if anyone could help me that would be great
:thumbsup:

ATI™ Radeon® 8500 or NVIDIA® GeForce 3 or 4 MX Series Video Card with 32 MB of VRAM these are min system cards required

They use an onboard video chip in a laptop, not a card, no room. All you can do is Update the onboard video driver, maybe increase your RAM, and if the BIOS lets you, allot more memory for video processing

is there any way i could change the driver from intel to ati or raedeon or no i don't think i can but it doesn't hurt to ask. and how would i go about updating the driver, i have had the comp for 4 years now and i have lost the original boot disk and everything else with it. are they online or how.

thx guys for being so helpful, i'm planning on telling my friends about this site:thumbsup:
