You will need
- a computer motherboard with an integrated graphics card.
Increase the amount of RAM. Replace the memory module with larger capacity or install additional straps to avoid reallocation of memory between the computer and the video card to the detriment of the latter.
To increase the processing speed of video games, will have to compromise on quality. Adjust settings: lower the texture quality and screen resolution, disable antialiasing and other resource-dependent functions.
Watch for the new drivers and firmware on the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard. Download and install updated drivers often yields performance gains through optimization of interaction between the operating system and device drivers.
Overclocking the CPU and RAM of your computer will allow you to increase graphics performance. Increased as a result of overclocking the CPU core frequency and system bus leads to lower timing memory. Keep out of the spotlight while conducting the disperse state of the system and the need for additional cooling. The North bridge when overclocking the integrated graphics card gets pretty warm, and you have to spend extra on a good cooling system to avoid output of the motherboard failure.
The increase in voltage also leads to serious damage. Therefore, in the process of dispersal closely monitor the state of the system. All changes should be done gradually, when testing the system state at each stage.
Some manufacturers leave open the possibility of overclocking the integrated graphics via the BIOS settings of the motherboard. These settings are very different and depend on the model. The specs on your motherboard you can find their detailed description either look for the manual on the manufacturer's website.
Advice 2 : How to increase video card memory on a laptop
The main problem for old laptops – low power graphics card. This problem can be solved in several ways, each of which requires certain skills.
You will need
- Phillips screwdriver.
To begin to examine the characteristics of the installed video card. If you are dealing with an integrated video card, then you have two ways to solve the problem. First, install second full-length graphics card.
To do this, turn off the laptop. Loosen all locking screws and remove the bottom cover. Find the port to connect the video card and install it. Assemble the laptop and turn on the device.
Install the required drivers and software. Most likely, you will have to install a program that allows you to switch between installed cards.
Disadvantage of this method is that not all laptops with pre-installed integrated graphics card has a port to connect a second device. In this case, increase the capacity of existing equipment.
Integrated graphics chips work by the computer's memory. Often to run "heavy" application or game requires a large amount of RAM and video card. Install additional cost of RAM that the system could allocate more resources to the video card.
If your laptop has full video card, then first adjust the parameters of its work. To do this, disable the unnecessary features. Usually turn off vertical sync and anisotropic filtering. Can also reduce the desktop resolution or application to reduce the load on the video card.
If you decide to replace the video card, then first examine the capabilities of the motherboard. Specify the type of port to which you connected the graphics card. Find out the maximum volume of the device is recommended for sharing with the motherboard and the rest of the equipment.
Repeat the operations described in the second and third steps.
Be careful when disassembling the laptop. You may have to disconnect some ribbon cables for access to the slot of the adapter.
