Ok I'm ignorant in these things. So you say I cannot change the graphic card because it is already integrated ect ect. In this case of the graphic card if I fuse it I mean overheat, burn or whatever is the damage then I need a new graphic card. What happen in this case? Thank you

Depends on what happend. Are you under warranty? If so, HP would change the motherboard if the card failed on its own.
Or they would replace the laptop with a refurbished unit.
If you did the damage yourself because you tried to remove it from the motherboard, you are responsible for the costs.

Yes it is in warranty. But it doesn't make any sense always changing the motherboard for a problem releted with. However I think my laptop is quite good to support another graphic card. Well I think to buy another laptop or just keep this one

Hi! Nope I'm just asking. I didn't wanted to buy a gaming laptop because I didn't knew how easy it is to get all the games you want just for £90 per year. And this laptop is amazing, really fast and specs like ram, hdd ect. So I'd love to upgrade it with a very good graphic card too. It's so weird I cannot change the graphic card.
