i have a hp pavillion dv8130us, i hav no idea what graphics card or video memory it has and im trying to find out, i would also like to know if its possible to increase video memory and if my computer would be compatible to with something like a Nvidia Geforce9800 or a good graphics card, i already checked in "system" but it doesnt show the amount of video memory i have.


edit:i have a ati mobilty radeon express 200 series.

Control panel > hardware and sound > device manager.

Open up 'display adapters' and it will give the model of your card. It will either give you details there, or you can just google the model.

In fact, you could just google the specs for your computer.

Chances are, it's an integrated chipset and you won't be able to change it, but that's not necessarily true.

if I'm not mistaken, that is a laptop model?

edit: google tells me it is. Generally speaking graphics chipsets on laptops are not upgradeable, and I am yet to hear of a graphics card that has expandable memory. Sorry, looks like your stuck with what it has.
You're using UG classic, congratulations.
You should be using UG classic.

www.crucial.com for an easy look at maximum and type of ram it can handle.
I would recommend downloading a program called Sandra Lite by SiSoftware for everything you need to know about your PC in detail.
