Re: is it possible for to install a graphic card for my laptop.

Hi,

 

I'm afraid it's not possible to upgrade your Intel HD Graphics as the chip is physically soldered to the Motherboard and so for all practical purposes, is not able to be changed.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Best wishes,

Hi,

 

It is not possible for all practical puposes.  The Intel HD Graphics Adapter is a chip that is soldered to your Motherboard, it is not designed  to be changed.  The procedure is possible, but not only would you need a good degree of expertise in soldering, you would also have to rewrite the bios to accept the new hardware.
