How can i check in windows 7 if my laptop's gpu is onboard or not?
It is most likely on-board. What is the model number (and service tag or serial number) of the laptop?
Most likely on-board, as Tmagic said. It's usually printed on a label located in the lower right-hand corner.
I don't see how you can add a GPU to a laptop like you would to a desktop.
Marnomancer - Some laptops do have replaceable graphics cards, such as the Toshiba Satellite p100/p105. Although, I imagine if he had one of those, he wouldn't be asking this question.
Hmm..I didn't know that...
Anyway, thanks for the information.
Yeah I know that some laptops have removable graphics cards. They do look kind of weird
Looks like an ancient piece of technology. :haha:
I mostly like anything that's sleek, black, glossy and fast. Alienware!
So to the original thread's creator: If your laptop looks wierd, it *could* have an addon card, otherwise not. The Toshiba doesn't look that wierd though.
Check device manager to see what GPU you have, then google your laptop model and see if the GPU is dedicated or onboard, another way is to check if you can buy a replacement GPU for your laptop on google, if you find it you'll know it's dedicated.
