    Is it possible to upgrade the Graphic card on the A100-033 ?
    I am not sure if the PCI slot on the side will accept a seperate Graphic card ?

    Hi George

    It’s definitely not possible to upgrade the graphic card. The notebook technology is a little bit different and you should not compare it with the common PC desktop.
    The GPU is fixed and not removable.

    Hello Jack, Thank you for prompt reply, then what is the PCI slot on the side is this just for memory only?

    The PCMCIA Cardbus 32-Bit/PC-Card 16-Bit slot on the notebook side is compatible with PCMCIA Type-II only cards. There are many different PCMCIA cards on the market.
    But I don’t found any PCMCIA graphic card which could improve the graphic performance of this notebook…

    I have just had a Chat with a another company support, they tell me this Laptop will be okay to run on their external Ultra Sharp 24" Monitor which VGA input and DVI
    the Graphic card
    For the Ultrasharp 2407WFP 24

    Is this asking too much from this Laptop to run on such a Monitor?

    Hi again

    The external monitor should functions with your notebook….
    The question is if you will be able to get your favourite display resolution on the external monitor.
    The graphic driver supports several resolutions but sometimes certain external display resolutions are not available and not supported.
