I'm wondering if I can find a compatible graphics card for my notebook but I'm not so sure about which graphics card suites . I need a graphics card which is 128Mb or higher (in order to play game :blink: :whistling: ) .

Sorry haphuong1712, but you can't upgrade the video card inside of laptops. The only things you can upgrade in a laptop is hard drive and ram.

Like I said before, the graphics card CANNOT be replaced in a laptop. Laptop's are very limited in what can be changed in them. Basically all that can be replaced/upgraded is memory and hard drive.

there are a very few laptops that can have a modular video... I have seen a toshiba with one ( dont' remember the model ) but you'd have to check with the laptop manufacturer and see if the laptop even has an upgradable video.... I've also never seen a laptop video upgrade on the normal market so you may have to buy direct.... they may be available I've just never seen one.

Well I looked up the manual at compaq and it doesn't say anything about your video being upgradable. You'd probably have to contact them directly to find out for sure... even if it is, unless you are very familiar with laptops you'd need to take it somewhere to be installed.

Agreed. While laptops are pretty easy to take apart, putting them together correctly can be the tricky part. If you don't do it perfectly, you can cause all sorts of problems for the laptop and it might not even boot up again at all. :whistling:
