    I have a Toshiba Satellite P2 with 3.00ghZ and a 17" screen. I've had it for years without any complaints.

    Only problem is it has a nVidia GeForce FX card in it. It's only 64mb. :wtc: Is there anyway to upgrade it? (It's already very slightly OC'd)

    Here's the stats, it's probably integrated into the motherboard which means no dice, amirite? :hs:

    Chances are you can't replace it. However, you may be able to increase the amount of memory it uses in the BIOS settings, provided that the card uses system RAM instead of its own, separate RAM.

    Does Windows show the same amount of usable RAM as what you actually have, or is Windows' readout lower than what it should be? That's a good way to tell if the video card is using system RAM.

    you can not upgrade nor can you increase memory.
