Hi,

I've a Toshiba Satellite 5200-802 (bought on eBay few weeks ago) with a geforce 5600 go inside.

Yesterday, I had to change the Harddisk due to an failure with it.

But now, there is an other failure :P :

When I opened the Start/All-Programs Menu my screen suddenly freezed with artifacts on it.

After installing Windows again for 2 times :) I found out that it doesn't freeze, when I put my hardware acceleration down a bit.

But then I wanted to test a game (Counter-Strike 1.6) the same problem appeared again.

So for me it seems as if the Hardware accelerations are broken.

But what must I do? Can I be sure that it is the graphicscard? Can I change it? Will it be difficult to change it :) ?

Is it possible to insert a bit better card?

OK, thank you for your help and please excuse my english - from Germany...

P.S. would this graphicscard work:

eBay-Link

It all depends. Some laptops have the VPU attached directly to the motherboard, others have a separate chip. But if you do decide on a new video card, you should send me your FX Go5600 for my mod :P lol. I cant seem to find any chips on ebay :( .

Id say go to your laptops manufacturer and buy a video card for your laptop from them if you want to replace it.
