    To Flavallee (Frank)Could you tell me where the ATI onboard Graphic video card is located in the Motherboard. Also can they be replace or upgraded. If posiible could you send me a picture of the motherboard of the ATI onboard Graphic video card. This is a Toshiba satellite Laptop Model # PSLC8U-00D010. This Laptop will boot up the fan is working all lights are on. I tested the Memory sticks (Ram) on another Laptop plus i also tested the Hard Drive. I also took apart the screen and all the wiring seem to be connected. I connected the VGA adapter to a different Monitor and still no video display. I am no sure but could it be the ATI onboard Graphic video card. Please help me with this problem.

    According to the number that you submitted, you appear to have a Toshiba Satellite L305D-S5881 laptop.

    I've never disassembled a laptop and replaced parts, so I can't address your isisue.

    Have you taken apart the laptop?? Its possible the CPU has gotten to the point where its gettign too hot on POST...I had this problem with a G$ it started up but no picture...I removed the HARD AS ROCK thermal paste and applied new paste and it now runs wonderfully at 41C on idle :)

    Hi, you cannot add an external Video card to that laptop you can replace the onboard card, however it is a job for someone technically trained, it is probably worth considering the labor charge for this, as against getting a new laptop, everything you spend on it is wasted money and should be considered as better spent on a new unit... up to you.
