\015\012\015\012The video card is replaceable and is relatively simple for those comfortable with laptop disassembly.

\015\012\015\012Probably impossible. Most laptop graphics chips are soldered directly to the motherboard requiring a new motherboard if one dies, and very few are actual "cards." That being said, it looks like your's is a nVIDIA GeForce4 420 Go which might be a card. I'll do some research and find out.
\015\012\015\012\015\012Comment posted on May 22, 2008\015\012Well if you look at picture for Step 25 here:
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-M10/replace-laptop-motherboard-3.htm

It does say that it's the "video board." It looks like it's replaceable, so if you can find a replacement card then it should be possible. Unless you are very comfortable following the guide starting at:
http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/Toshiba-Satellite-Pro-M10/replace-laptop-motherboard.htm

I wouldn't recommend it.
Hi tcgirl9967,

Sorry but you can't replace the video card in those laptops as they are integrated into the laptop. I can't for sure say that it's your motherboard as it could be other parts of your video components in the laptop. You might try seeing if it will work with an external monitor hooked up to it. If so, it probably is not the motherboard but one of the other video related parts.

If it turns out to be the motherboard, it's usually pretty expensive to fix (unless it's under warranty) and might not be worth the cost to have it repaired considering the cost of new laptops these days.


Hope that helps,

Take care,

Michael

Display problem i have problem with the display on my m2. when it's turned on all i get is a screen that has multicoloured vertical lines. i've connected an external monitor that i know works to the vga port and the monitor didn't get a signal. i'm wondering if it is a problem with the internal video card or a problem with the mobo it's self. if it is the video card is that part replaceable?


That does sound like a video card problem. You may be able to replace just the video card if it is it's own component. If it's integrated in to the motherboard, then you will have to replacement the motherboard. \015\012\015\012Try contac ... Toshiba Tecra M2 Notebook
