Dear Jeet,

Having your graphic card can be a simple task. Upgrading it is a good solution since it will bring up your PC to a better performance. However you should have the actual one identified first. This can easily be carried out by getting to the Device Manager. The next step is getting to its official website and having it updated.

Yet you can also have the graphic card renewed. Please obtain the complete instructions of how to carry out this task in the following provided Kioskea FAQ articles which will be very helpful to you.

Choosing the graphic card is also another issue and the choice should be made basing yourself on its performance. Well, obtain more information and the steps to completing the task through the below links:

Updating your graphics card driver

You cant install external VGA card on a Compaq 510, Its inbuilt graphic processor GMX 3100 gives very low graphic performance. Adding more RAM wont do any good in context of graphic quality.
There is an option dear! yes playing without graphics card with help of graphic card emulator

search for swiftshader and 3d analyze in google to play without graphic card.

Hey there, please provide more information over the issue. It could simply be that need to have the graphic card's driver updated or still the webcam's driver has not been installed. Please confirm!

Didn't find the answer you are looking for?

Ask a question
Yeah, it is probably because of the VGA(Graphic Card).
Compaq 510 wasn't designed for games, so its normal if u can't play games that need high graphic.

I don't know if u can, because for some notebooks, u cannot change the VGA, but if u can, u need to upgrade ur RAM(Memory) as well, because 2GB isn't sufficient for good gaming.

I have another way to play games, but u can only play in the lowest quality(or u can't).

It is called 3D Analyzer, 3D analyzer is Virtual Graphic Card, just try it and u will know :)
Objection! I have played the following games on this laptop and they run freely with nice performance:
1.project IGI
2.IGI 2
3.NFS Underground 2
4.NFS Most wanted
5.NFS Carbon
6. Wanted weapons of fate
7.Doom 3
8.Return to castle wolfenstien

these are the most popular games of there time
