can i upgrade my S20-30 netbook? (for gaming)

I am wondering if i can somehow improve my netbook bcos i want to atleast play some decent games on it like fallout new vegas smoothly.

 

The intel HD graphics mobile that's here is slowing me down so can i ask if i have any means of upgrading my netbook?

Re: can i upgrade my S20-30 netbook? (for gaming)

Welcome to the Forums Super.

Fallout: New Vegas Minimum Requirements:

 

CPU Speed:

Dual Core 2.0 GHz Processor or better

 

RAM:

2 GB

 

OS:

Windows 7 / Vista / XP

 

Video Card:

NVIDIA GeForce 6 series or better, ATI Radeon X1300 XT series or better

 

Free Disk Space:

10 GB

 

As per the datasheet, Looking inside the Ideapad S20-30 and on page 27 of the HMM., there are no SODIMM slot on the mainboard so the RAM can't be upgraded on this model (the memory is soldered instead to the mainboard). Also, graphics card is integrated & it also cant be upgraded.

Can I somehow play fallout new Vegas on my netbook?

 

If so how many fps would it probably would be?

 

Can updating/upgrading my Intel HD graphics mobile drivers can improve fps?

Can you give me a complete list of games lenovo s20-30 netbook can run because that would help me find games that I could play instead of checking every single game if I could run them manually.

Is your drive well defragged? That system should run fairly well.Run CCleaner, clean off some junk files. Make sure the power settings are configured for optimal performance.

 

When you say not fast, can you precisely define what you mean? i.e. in application load time, process response time?
Also, check whether you are consuming up all your CPU resources, i.e. if the CPU is running at 100% load or approaching 100% load.

 

Update us how it goes.

Defragged? Do you mean well cleaned?

What I mean about the Intel HD graphics mobile slowing me down is it bottlenecks my netbook when it comes to games. I can play most of the games I want to play like fallout NV but the Intel HD graphics mobile cannot run those games. All except my graphics card can get to the minimum requirement of a certain game.

I cleared junk files and my CPU is running at 50-70% if idle.

There's no option in property>tool and I can't defrag bcos optimize is the only option in the optimize and defragment drive option
