Is it possible to change the graphics card in a laptop?
I want to play sims 2 on one but my Graphics card won't support it. Its only a cuppla years old. Plenty of Hd space and 2 gig processor..
But the memory card is S3 32mb memory..
Cheers :thumbsup:

Hi... Need to know some info from the laptop. Who makes it, what model # and type, and any other info to help figure out what you are upgrading. You may be able to add video memory, but other than that, I think you are stuck with the hardware that is on your system board.

/agree rigelslight

whatever video card you have with a laptop
is what you are stuck with. only way to change
that is to get a new laptop.
or a desktop ;)

Not necesarely, certain notebooks have got a removeble graphics card.
I know we use to sell one, where you had an upgrade optionthe highest was going Geforce4 (mobile version ofcourse), so maybe just check if the chip you got in is removeble
