    K, I got a question: Is there ANY way to get a new video card for a laptop? My friend told me he upgraded from 16mb to 64mb for $200 bucks on his laptop, but it turns out he called them after he placed his order but before they shipped. I obviously thought he meant he had upgraded later on, so I bought my laptop with a 16mb card. So now i'm sitting here with a 1.0GHz laptop with 512megs of ram and a 16mb video card :(

    Well the only idea I've got is call who ever made ur laptop and ask how much it would cost to have them upgrade the video card as much of a pain that might be its bout the only way. Well to be honest I've never seen a laptop video card for sale like the ones u see for desktops. Well I hope this at least helps u.

    since the video cards are kinda spacifically made for laptops, and some intergraded, you have to send it back
