Can i upgrade the graphics on my laptop?

  eggmckane 18:32 21 Dec 2007

My laptop has got the usual Intel (R) 82852/82855 GM/GME graphics controller cack & i'd like to upgrade it to something decent but is it possible, its easy on a desktop because i did that to an old desktop.

My laptop is a couple of years old but fairly good standards even for today, its an Acer Travelmate 252LC_DT Pentium 4 2.6GHz.

I tried loading The sims 2 lastnight & it totally crashed my graphics.

Thanks Greg.

Yeah agreed, but I am guessing that the laptop in question is not worth $600.
