System crash is one of the most common issues that arise during the Upgradation of Graphics Card. Incorrect Driver Installations can cause system crash. It is noted that the Blue Screen of Death usually occurs and system tends to freeze before such crashes. This can also happen if the installation of the card was not done properly. Installing the hardware on your Toshiba Qosmio X500 needs extra care and it is recommended to be carried out by a qualified technician.
If the graphic card was not installed properly, it could leave the system with lot of errors. These errors could be either caused by the incorrect drivers installed or a hardware related problem. These can also be caused by the incompatibility of the driver installed with the operating system in use.
Even after the purchase and upgradation of your graphics card to the latest one, there might be performance issues that come up. These are mainly because of lack of memory or RAM to use the card efficiently. Performance issues may also arise if the processor is not able to fully perform in tandem with the graphics card. Processor upgrades and addition of RAM are also recommended while upgrading of the graphics card.
