hello so me and my 3 bros have the same kind of computer same specs same every thing. but 1 of my brothers was trying to get his GPU to install new drives and he said it would not. so he tryed a lot of stuff and now its working better then all of our like a LOT better he does not know what he did i have been trying to find out but i can not. so i was seeing how i can boost my graphics card cuz its kinda crappy so its a nvidia NVS 3100M. sooo is there a way to get more out of it. i have heard of overclocking but will that damage it???

overclocking laptop GPUs is rarely a good idea, most are thermally inadequate...

 

Make the jump to a desktop... you'll thank me later :/

ha ok well thanks for the info on overclocking but buying a desktop is not rly a option for me cuz i am 16 and live on a ranch with my parent that 30 mins from any thing so the only way i get money is by walking miles down dirt roads to get cans to recycle. i only got the my computer cuz a relitive works for a company that throws away computers after some time and he gave it to me.

+1! :thumbup2:

 

Notebooks cannot handle the extra heat needed for overclock.......some models runs hot out of the box. A few years back I tried overclocking my GeForce GT425M to get better folding@home crunching results, all I done was made my already hot MB run even more so & set back to default values. Fortunately, I had removed the battery before doing this to keep the heat away from (then) a 24/7 running notebook for it's first 7-8 months of ownership. Because of what I used the notebook for, disabled updates & security, it sat on a steel shelf to help absorb heat, was gaining close to 6,000 points per day. 

 

Later would acquire a desktop & once I seen the GPU performance, shutdown folding@home on my notebook & would continue to run on my PC instead, gaining over 13,000 points per day. :guitar:

 

I noticed that you stated you lucked up on getting the notebook you have, ask around, get the word out, you may luck up in the same manner & gain a PC. Today, I get so many offers for 'rehoming' unwanted PC's that I have to turn most down, or accept & donate to the local Hospice store. Don't give up, someone will have one with your name on it! :)
