Hey guys, first time posting on the forums. :)
Well, I have a few questions about the Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family (which is what my computer is using). First off, what I have gathered from the internet is this is just a chip that is used in place of a graphics card, but does the same thing. Most computers (desktops, more or less) use these chips as backups in case the graphics card stop working. Is all that correct? Also, I've heard it's impossible to upgrade these chips. Is that true as well? I am running an Acer Aspire 5810TZ and I could find no information from google about inserting a new video card into the computer. I would like to upgrade from the Mobile Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family to something better. Is this possible?

Thanks for your time,

If it's a laptop the graphics are not upgradable. Your Acer Aspire is a laptop therefore unfortunately the only way you'll get to replace the graphics is to replace the laptop.
