Upgrading the graphics card on my HP Pavilion DM4

Is it possible, or is the graphics card on my laptop soldered to the motherboard?

Hi,

 

There are many DM4 models, what is yours. Normally upgrading video card on laptops is not recommended because another thing is heat, more powerfull video cards generate more heat and that's a killer.

 

Hope this makes sense.

Hi, banhein

 

My exact model is dm4t-2000. I don't plan on upgrading the graphics card to a really high-end card, just something that's a little better than the intel integrated card.

Hi,

 

No option in this therefore most likely the video card is not upgradable.
