It's integrated; not accessible unless you want to ruin your mobo.

The "video card" is integrated into the Intel 943GML Express chipset which also controls a lot of other things in your notebook's motherboard.

The chipset is soldered into the motherboard.

you have to open the back cover to take a look at it. but better don't mess up with it. even if you able to find it most likely you won't be able to do anything to it.

It is a chip soldered onto the motherboard. You can't really see/access it, even though you disassembled.

Why were you hoping to find it? You can't upgrade it since it's a laptop.

It's a part of your chipset, a part of your motherboard.
I.E. Not removable...
What is the importance of this?

The only Intel word that I saw in the mobo was the Intel NH82801GBM aside from the intel processor. Is that it?

Can someone upload a picture where is that Intel 943 GML specific location on the motherboard, because I want to do hot air on it, trying to fix that chip on my own.

Thanks guys

Doesn't sound like it, not if you have a 943 chipset.

Let me be even blunter then they have been with you. The IGP is built into the northbridge of your laptop. THERE ISN'T ANYTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT THIS. I have no idea why you're looking for it, but even if you found it you can't do anything to it. If you can't even find it, you lack the skills needed to do anything to it.

Try telling us what the problem is. Perhaps there is another way to help you fix whatever is wrong. Ripping the laptop apart probably isn't the answer.
