    Banned
    Hi,

    okay, so I got a laptop that needs a new graphics card,

    it has installed a Nvidia chipset card, and the one im going to buy is a ATI hd card, anyone know if it will be compatible? if its anything like a desktop mainboard it should work right?

    they are both of similar time when they were produced with the 2 cards, and both for the same machine but different version of release date im thinking but totally unsure!

    hoping someone knows better than me!

    thanks

    MXM slot upgradable graphics

    one of the rare laptops with upgradeable video card

    just check your prospective buy for the mxm slot, and you should be fine

    Just checking the above info guys, will update in a sec.

    ok on reading what dont posted for me on the news page there,

    they tested both -

    HD4570 and HD4650 cards in this machine. Both work just fine.

    the card im wanting to buy is the MXM HD3470 - as this is an older card from the above 2 im presuming this would work?

    Hope so!

    if I can buy a working card for £40.00 its cost me a £110 all in.

    so when I sell it on flea bay should make a tidy profit. :thumbsup:

    its got a nice Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor.
