Upgrading a graphics card for a Lenovo 3000 N200- 0769

Hi,

 

I have the 3000 N200 laptop and it has an Intel chipset 096. Where do I find what type of video card is inside? I picked up the PC DVD game of Oblivion, installed it, but it will not run. I know I need a higher end card. Please help!

 

Thanks

hi, i think it wouldn't work.

 

But if you want to know what graphic card is in your laptop, download and install this program

it shows you everything about your graphic card.

GPU-Z will tell you,download it off the net. The n200 doesn't have the MXM slots so you can't upgrade the GPU.

nope, only laptops with Intel as GPU don't have mxm.

 

i have a graphic card in my laptop,

 

My GPU

 

And i can overclock it, on 475 Mhz GPU Clock and about 675 Memory Clock, with no problem, of course i have a cool pad, i do it only with the cool pad. By overclocking i don't have any problems.

 

And i saw the Card in my laptop, as i cleaned the fan. 

 

So it is possible to update, but, MXM cards are expensive, don't know if the cooling and the voltage in my laptop is useable with an other card.
