Anyone has any idea where I can upgrade my laptop video RAM?
I am struggle to process my 6mb pixel pictures with my laptop.

Anyone also have any idea how much the 2ndhand market price for it?
Spec:
Intel P3-700
128mb RAM
14.1" XGA
4mb ATI AGP 2x Video Card
8x DVD ROM
Built in Modem, Ethernet and FDD.
8 hours Li-ion bat

Damn this thing is like chain reaction, now I am shoting with medium size with my D100. I have difficulties with post production processing.

actually if you wanna do post-pro, you might be better off with a desktop and monitor... laptop LCDs aren't very accurate.

Is there a problem?
Most likely, adding another 128megs of ram and clean reinstalling your OS to get rid of all the crap will benefit you more.

Btw, its not likely that you'll be able to upgrade your videoram.

Biggest problem is for panning at full resolution, sometime it can takes 10 seconds to respons if I open more than one image.
I know the LCD is not accurate enough but I can't put desktop in my room too messy.
I plan to get extra 128mb RAM but based on my friend's advice it won't help much, video ram is too small.

I have too much data I can't afford to re-format my harddisk.

Adjusting my images become a very stressful job and testing my passion.

Problem is that video ram will not affect your speed.

Try getting more ram instead. Are you running XP or 98?
