MacBook :: Upgrade The Graphics Card In A Late 2006 (original)?

May 27, 2012

I have this Late 2006 Macbook, that still runs great and everything, but the only problem iv been running into, is video. So when i watch a video in QuickTime Player, or QuickView, or even YouTube, the video just randomly starts to flip out. So, is it possible to upgrade the Graphics Card?

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.6.8), Snow Leopard, Original MacBook.

PowerPC :: PowerMac G5 (late 2004) Graphics Card Upgrade

Jul 9, 2008

So my mom's G5 (single 1.8) graphics card just pooped out on us.

Lot's of multi-colored lines show up on the screen at the same time and it never boots into OS X. Ran the CD Apple hardware test and the only error i got back was the video memory. So we're thinking about getting a new video card.

It has the factory card still in it and I can't really decide what kind of card needs to be purchased. I've been hunting around the internet and have found numerous conclusions that all seem to differ.

It's basically an AGP 8x slot. We don't need anything fancy just a replacement. There's an auction on ebay right now for the current card (nVidia GeForce FX 5200) but the auction has two in it and we only need one.

but anyway, if anyone could lead me in the right direction i'd really love to get my mom's mac up and running again.

Mac Pro :: What Is Best Graphics Card For 2006 Bootcamp

Aug 10, 2010

I have a 2006 mac pro with an x1900xt, I'm looking to get another card to run in Bootcamp (Win 7 32bit) for games. I was looking at flashing a 4870 but it looks like it's more trouble than it's worth (I see a lot of dual monitor issues, for example, and I require dual monitors).

What card should I get with minimum trouble such that I can use it in Bootcamp/Win7? I'll continue use the x1900xt for OS X. Looking for <$150, something like an ATI 4870 or 5750 (preferably without any additional special cables.

Mac Pro :: Graphics Card Options For Original?

Aug 10, 2010

I have an original, stock Mac Pro (August 2006), which has performed flawlessly until yesterday. It seems to start up fine (I can hear the usual hard drive spinning sounds, but my display (Apple 23" LCD) is now totally blank (black). The power light on the display is lit (and I've verified that the display still works by connecting it to my MacBook Pro), so I can only assume that the graphics card (Nvidia GeForce 7300GT) has died. What are my options as far as replacing this card nowadays? I don't play games on my Mac Pro, but I do use it for Photoshop and iMovie and also to watch QT videos and DVDs (as well as browsing the internet, of course). I should add that I have zero experience with installing graphics cards, but I'm comfortable with getting into the machine and doing simple things like adding memory and additional hard drives.

OS X :: Late 2007 Graphics Card Dying?

May 2, 2010

My macbook (Late 2007, Intel GMAX3100 graphics, Snow Leopard) has been causing serious graphics glitches the last couple months. It has been happening for quite a while now, and for the last month it has happened every time i boot the machine up.I have also had problems on windows 7 through bootcamp where the graphics card would bluescreen windows, which leads me to believe my graphics card is dying.

Mac Pro :: New/Upgrade Graphics Card For Mac Pro?

Dec 10, 2010

So basically, I bought a Mac Pro in mid 2007 with the following specs:

Two 2.66GHz Dual-Core Intel Xeon
1GB (2 x 512MB)
NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT 256MB SDRAM

Anyways, I have just started using it again and would like to use it to play WoW (probably via BootCamp) but the current graphics card is really insufficient.

So what I'm basically looking for is a graphics card that would run in a mid-07 Mac Pro with the 2x2.66GHZ Dual-Core Intel Xeon's (ram is not an issue, I can upgrade this as well) - that will allow me to play WoW on even good settings.

IMac :: Graphics Card On 24" / Can I Upgrade It?

Sep 16, 2009

It only took me a year to figure it out, but I've confirmed that the problems I've been having for the past year with the screen freezing (thought the computer was freezing) are owed to a bad graphics card. The card I have in my 2.16GHz 24" iMac (purchased Sep '06), NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT, is indeed ready to die. I found some articles that said the graphics card is easily upgradable in my iMac. If true, which replacement card should I buy? And is this something I can install myself, simply by removing the cover, pulling out the old card and installing the new?

IMac :: Won't Upgrade Graphics Card ATI Radeon 2600 Pro To Geforce 8800 GT

Nov 14, 2008

I purchased my Mac a few weeks ago, wanting to both upgrade my computer.......and play Diablo 3. I do always want the best out of my systems and the person who sold me the mac told me it would be fairly easy to upgrade the card...well he was wrong. He also told me a few days later not to worry about upgrading since the system is already great.

I went to a local Mac store and asked about the upgrade and found out it would be close to or above a grand for the part from Apple and the labor.

Heres the breakdown:

$875 - Card
$130 - Labor
$15 - Shipping (from apple)

Are there any other ways to find this part online cheaper and just hopefully pay for the labor?

I just really dont want to pay a grand just to upgrade my damn video card, and I know within the new year Apple will release a much better fast computer and I'll be mad. I really wish it wasn't such a hard upgrade.

MacBook :: Late 2006 Will Not Turn On

Dec 1, 2009

I turned my computer on in school, and it would not start up past the white screen. I turned it on when I got home, and it gets to the blue screen, and then hangs. I turn it off, and when i turn it back on, the screen flashes and it goes off. I take out the battery and run it off the adapter. It flashes and nothing happens. However, I can hear it churning, but I see nothing on the screen. The sounds are still being made, and they stop after I take out the power cord. I have backups and my new computer that i ordered left week, is on the way.
