I have a Sony Vaio VGN-A190, and the graphics card in it is a Radeon 9700, which only has 64 MB of video RAM. I'm concerned about my computer being Vista compatible when it finally comes out. I think that I need a minimum of 128 MB of video RAM. So I need to upgrade my graphics card if it is possible to with my computer model. I've heard it is tricky with laptops to do this, so I was wondering if anybody could give me advice on how to get the ball rolling. Please help. Is it possible and if so are there any reccomendations with what card to upgrade with.
Since its a laptop it is not upgradable friendly. The only things that are upgradable would be the memory and harddrive thats about it... Most of the time they have a built in graphics card that is pretty fast for it being "Integrated" and they dont have any kind of slots for video card upgrades.. If you wanted a good video card on a laptop you should of bought one with a good video card already in it.. Thats the way it is for laptops.. You pay for what you get on laptops and the "Gaming" laptops are alot more because they use special mobos with a real expansion slot for a Real video card and not a integrated graphics card.
Memory wont be a problem upgrading though.
