Team,

Running a Dell Latitude D630 with NVidia Quadro NVS 135M. Downloaded the 84.25 driver and modded INF, got through the install process and the 135M was not on the list of compatible hardware devices (jumped from 120M to 200s).

Trying to run Oblivion IV.

Can ya help?

hi i have a geforce go 6100 card. Im having a few issues with it running certain games and want to upgrade. Quesion is can i or not. I have a packard bell easynote sw51-201 with 1gb ram. My prcessor is an AMD sempron 1.8ghz. I have recently been attempting to use these inf thingys but cant seem to fathom it.

Thanks, Adam.

yes you can i upgraded my GPU from a Nvidia Geforce 6150LE to a PNY Nvidia Geforce 8500GT and it worked.I have an AMD Sepron 1.8Ghz and 1Gb ram.i think the only problem would be your pawer supply.Most cards need a minimum of 300 w.if you want to upgrade you can.

Hi,

I have a Compal IFL 90 with a GF 8600M GT. SiSoft Sandra tells me i have a PEG J6C1 Slot. This should be a slot for a PCIe Graphics adapter. Does anybody know if the 8600 Gt is exchangeable on me board? Dont get me wrong, i dont want to upgrade at this point ;-) but i want to know if it is possible in the future.

Hey, the best thing to do is to look at what is needed on the back of the game box in order to find out if your computer is compatable and good enough. Your computer sounds like it may be able to handle fast running games like frontline fuels of war.

Spec for Fuels of war

Min system requirements: Pentium 4 2.5GHz+, 1GB RAM, 3GB HD, NVIDIA 6 or higher w/256MB, DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card

Compare this with the spec of your computer, it looks like it will work fine :)

I was wondering if it was possible to change the graphic card of a laptop.

Mostly not but in some cases yes. If the chip is soldered to the MoBo, not possible. Some vendors use modular cards with own design/connectors, so mostly a card from the same laptop family may fit. Some vendors use MXM standard cards, where a card from a different brand may work. But a problem persists: does the Bios support the new card? You may find many different brands of the laptop built into the same chassis from the same OEM supplier, there the probability of success is high.

My machine (see sidebar) has a Go 7600. Since I've noticed xMacLeoDx posting about his P100 which has a Go 7900 GTX, it's worth asking:

- Is this machine upgradable?

- Where can I get hold of one of these cards (I've seen one or two on Ebay)?

Toshiba released an extremely limited range of the P100 in the UK, when compared with the US market, which is probably why the only ones I've seen on Ebay are in the US.

It`s MXM II, so it should fit. But also you should know, it`s on your own risk.
