    Just joined this forum and I need some advice and hope someone can assist me?
    I have an Advent 7003 pentium 4 windows xp home edition 2000mhz processor with 40gb hard drive
    It has a S3 Graphics ProSavageDDR installed and having just bought a new game I find it will not work (Lara Croft - Angel of Darkness)
    I have been advised that I will need a graphics card?
    If so :-
    1. Is it possible to fit a graphics card to my Advent 7003?
    2. If so which would be the best one to get?
    Any help gratefully accepted
    Regards,Colin

    Most laptops are not meant to be used for gaming and thus have no capacity to upgrade anything other than memory or a hard drive. I would bet your graphics card is built into the motherboard and cannot be upgraded. I have however seen docking stations that allow you to add an external video card or other peripheral but I would hazard a guess Advent has no such thing.
