Hi:

 

I don't think so.

 

You can only get one of the HP motherboards listed in the service manual.  Chapter 3, page 26. There are several and you have to match the motherboard replacement with the processor you have.

If you don't like your GPU, I would sell your notebook, and get one with the graphics adapter you want.

Can I replace a discrete card on a dv-6? What about a mobo switch?

Sorry to "necropost" but apparently the HP third party branded not a real radeon 7690m XT (also not an actual 7000 series Radeon card...) is now the one I am stuck with.

It is discrete.  I can't get an exchange, full, or even partial refund.  I have indeed been fully ripped off by the corporate unfeeling procedural red tape monsters who expect me to buy another laptop when the one I bought under 3 months ago won't run games properly from THREE YEARS AGO....
and has NO OPEN GL...

So can I either - a. Have this thing removed somewhere and replaced with another GPU of my choosing compatible with that motherboard - I am fairly certain any recent NVIDIA laptop GPU including the ones you now stock on your dv series laptops are compatible, or at least, have my entire motherboard removed and replaced - and NOT with another bloody 7690m XT which the service center will never find a defect in, because they don't consider software and drivers an important part of the laptop.....

And I have had it in a service center already, been through all the consumer support channels blah blah blah....

Most laptops you cannot change out the GPU mainly because its a laptop, if you are wanting to upgrade each year with a better GPU i suggest using a desktop PC and not a laptop due to the fact that it is hard to upgrade such hardware

I opened my hp pavilion g6 1313ax and saw that the GPU AND THE CPU ARE GLUED TO THE BOARD i said GLUE not soldered I am not an expert but it think that we can change the GPU if we would take trouble to find the GPU which fits there Perfectly

I AM HAVING HP PAVILION G6 1313AX AMD CROSSFIRE DUAL GPU AMD 6520G+ AMD 7450M
i am quiet happy with laptop but GPU should be more POWERFULLLL.

YOU CAN NOT CHANGE INTEL GPU WITHOUT REPLACING THE CPU coz intel GPU is not a real GPU it is just memory inside the CPU
