Question about upgrading my Notebook Card


Recommended Posts

Hi again!

It's been awhile since I've had any problems with my laptop video (since Fabrice helped me get it up and running), and it's working great!

Although, it's only a 16MB Geforce 4 420 Go card...and it's actually a card inside of the laptop, not a processor integrated.

So I had a question. I've spoken to a good friend of mine for awhile about upgrading the video to a newer card. Question is, I don't know which Nvidia card to go with. I want something higher than the GF4 32 MB, though. I don't know if this is possible or if any others are compatible with the Toshiba, and I've been trying to look it up for awhile now, so I wanted to ask you guys if it would be possible.

So far, it's been working great, I even have HL2 running on it (yeah, it kinda chugs but it's because of the card).

Any ideas? And Thanks again!

So nobody has found an answer? Just curious.

More than likely the card is hardwired onto the motherboard... so no upgrades.

Toshiba have never used a common standard GPU module, they are either hardwired to the board or using a proprietary module (so at best you can upgrade if there's a higher spec of the same model with better GPU).
