How to Upgrade from an Nvidia Geforce Graphics Card in an Asus Laptop

A system’s graphics card can make or break the computer.

With a good graphics card, intensive video-editing or gaming programs can run smoothly with little-to-no difficulty. However, these same programs could potentially crash a computer with a lesser graphics card.

If you’re wondering how to upgrade your computer’s graphics card to a higher-tier product, check out the guide below!

Better Graphics Card, Better Performance

While it goes without saying that improving your graphics card can improve your computer’s graphics, you might not have known that graphics cards also heavily impact system performance. By upgrading your graphics card, you increase your computer’s output potential.

Performing the Upgrade

Start by saving all of your data and powering off your laptop. In fact, creating a remote backup might not be a bad idea, just in case you mess up something that you shouldn’t be touching during the process.

Next, use a screwdriver to remove the bottom containment case of your laptop. Now you should see a small slit on the left-hand side of your laptop. This is where the graphics card lives.

Make sure to take a picture of which wires connect to where on the graphics card before disconnecting them. Once they’ve been disconnected, remove the old graphics card, input the new graphics card, and reconnect the wires in the exact same manner as before.

Screw the panel back on, power up your laptop, download the device drivers and you’re good to go!

Conclusion

That’s all it takes! Now your computer will be better equipped to handle those more graphics-intensive programs and applications in an efficient and frustration-free manner.
