    I can't find the manual on my pc.

    Is there a program I can download that will tell me all the specs on my computer?

    Also, I want to install a GeForce video card. But the one right now is shared with the RAM, so would it still be possible for me to put the GeForce on and disable the sharing?

    Is this the PC in your signature?

    HP pavilion ze1110 Laptop
    Xp Home Edition
    1 Ghz Cpu
    240 MB of RAM
    Netgear wireless network card
    Direct x 9

    If so, you cannot install a new video card in the laptop. Only a few of the very expensive models have a separate card, and it's proprietary to the laptop, not a generic card.

    Everest home will give a list of the hardware.

    Try Belarc Advisor, a free download, and it lists all hardware and software.
    Kiwi is right, your not going to change a video card in a laptop. If the computer is the one Kiwi spec'd, spend your money on RAM, or start saving for a gaming rig.

    No, not the specs I had in my signature.

    It's a Gateway desktop. I just want the bad *** GeForce in it. So I'll post the specs when I get a min. and see if you guys think it's possible to install.
