Hi my sony vaio laptop graphic card got burnt this morning but my laptop still can run.I went to replace it but the repairer said that the motherboard must be replaced completly to fix the problem.My laptop now shows vertical little lines but it can run some games like monopoly tycoon, sim city 4, counter strike 1.6 without restarting.is there any way to optimize the graphic card or do something else so i can get rid of these lines(not bying a new motherboard or new laptop solution) ?My graphic card is a ati mobility radeon 9200 (M9 X) 64 Mb.

The graphics "card" is integrated into the motherboard, it is not replaceable. You need to either replace the motherboard, get a new laptop, or live with it as-is. There are no other options.

its not a graphics card if its not a card
the labtops all of them have wut we call integrated into the motherboard or igp
so if an igp burns out in a LABTOP the things jam suggested are all the options u have
but i wonder how did u burn ur motherboard?

My motherboard did not burn.The repairer said that the only way to fix the laptop was to replace it (not because it was burnt but because it was his only solution).And sorry for calling it graphic card.

radeon 9200 is a video card(64/128 or 256mb ddr, gpu=250mhz, mem=200mhz/128bit, dx 8.1)
the system is old (nothing can be done to remove the lines) better find another system.
