Default Graphics Card Question

I have a Toshiba Satellite and I thought that when I bought it I upgraded the graphics card but when I try to see it in device manager it shows "intel 945 express chipset" does this mean that there isnt another card present?

Yeah it's integrated so no there's not a dedicated chip or anything. Precious few laptops support changeable graphics cards and yours would not be one of them.

It means it's integrated.

My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.
