I want to know whether I can upgrade graphics card of my laptop.
Now a days most of the high end games are not
working in my laptop and I'm pretty disappointed.
Please let me know whether I can do that. My laptop model is
HP Pavillion DV5 1106AX.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Unfortunately in most of today's notebooks (including yours), the graphics cannot be upgraded.
I looked at the service manual for your notebook, and there aren't even any other motherboards with better graphics available.
You can try the latest drivers from AMD to see if that helps, any but you can't do anything with the hardware.

The video adapter on most HP notebooks cannot be upgraded without a complete exchange of the motherboard and that is only if there is a motherboard available with better graphics.
The costs attendant to exchanging a motherboard do not justify upgrading the video.
Better to sell the notebook you have and buy a new one with the graphics solution you want.

I would need to know the full model of the dv6 you have.
Also if it can be done, it would not be done without replacing the entire motherboard.
The costs attendant to doing such a motherboard replacement would more than likely exceed the cost of buying a new notebook with the graphics solution you want.
