HP Pavilion dv6-2155dx Video/Graphics Card Upgrade

Hello.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6-2155dx Entertainment Notebook and I was thinking of changing my video/graphics card with a better one, ATI Radeon or NVIDIA Geforce.

Is this possible?

Thank you.

Nope, is a simple answer. You want to know why, than read on....

You will not be able to upgrade a graphics card on notebooks, primarily is due to the fact that they are not available in after- market/in retail... By Any chance you get one, it will effect system's Thermal Design and Power Consumption...what I means, system will start running hot, you will not get battery life, the current adapter will not have enough power to drive the graphics card, etc. Plus it yours is a onboard graphics, so I am not sure, if the Graphics card connector slot is there on the systemboard....
