I have a laptop Toshiba Satellite A35-S209. My problem is that the integrated graphics card is 32 MB, and I am a graphic designer. As you know, I need a good graphics card to use software like 3D MAX.
My question is: Can I change the graphics card in my laptop? If so how? If not what is the optimal solution? Thanks.
Upgrade Graphics Card on Toshiba Satellite A35-S209
Well, upgrading a machine is very popular because we want to maximize our machine performance and get better results from it. But when it comes to upgrade a laptop, it’s basically a very delicate job as the architect of laptop is complicated as compare to desktop. It’s easier to pull off graphic card from desktop.
But for any up gradation of device in laptop, you have to have screwdrivers in your hand and have to open the entire body of laptop, which is risk full. Toshiba Satellite A35-S209 can be modified and upgrade but this model of Toshiba possesses a Pentium 4 processor. So if you upgrade you 32 MB card with 64 MB or 128 MB, nothing much can change.
It will run 3D MAX software, but the speed will never been that smooth. And may be your laptop suffers from heat up problem. So if you don’t want to buy a new one and want to upgrade it, just don’t take the risk. Search for a hardware expert in near market.
