I have a Sony Vaio PCV-W1/G desktop and have recently put Vista onto it - however apparently the video/graphics card isn't up to it (vista gives it a 1/5) - anyone know if it is easy to upgrade the graphics on a PCV-W1/G -anyone tried it before?

many thanks.

That computer uses on-board intel video card "accelerator".
If the computer has PCI and AGP port, or PCI-X, you can just buy any nVidia card and put it in, it should work just fine.

These issues will only be resolved if and when Vista compatible
driver are released. you just try to download the Vista Driver from Support.vaio.sony.co.
