Graphics Upgrade advice

Hi there, wonder if anyone can help me buy the right graphics card for my laptop!

I have an Acer Aspire 1640z:-

Intel Pentium M Processor 735
1GB Memory
Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900
VGA port

Now the problem I am having in game mode is white patches/flashes in the display. I am, therefore, thinking I need a better graphics card. I have reduced my colour to 16 bit which has helped, but not completely solved the problem.

Now I'm not after anything too swish or fancy, I don't do that much gaming, I just really want to rectify this particular problem. I'm not totally clued up on pc specs, but if you need any more info, please let me know and I'll look it up!!

Can anyone recommend a graphics card upgrade, compatible with my laptop for around £40 (or is this far too cheap LOL!!!), which might help solve this problem.

I dont think you can upgrade the graphics, josleepy.

I am afraid you are stuck with your integrated motherboard graphics.
