Can I Upgrade my Graphics Card

Product Name: HP Pavillion 15t
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I want to use my laptop to run games every now and then but I feel that my graphics card isn't good enough. Is there any way I can upgrade it?

I have ann HP Pavilion notebook and the model no. is: 15t-ab200

Hello;

Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!


Sorry, but unlike desktops, which use cards, laptops have chips that are soldered directly to the motherboard or system board, or come in the form of "modules".

Only a very limited subset of HP laptops actually allow the replacement of processor, audio, video or WiFi "modules" and, as far as I can tell, yours is not one of these models.

This means there is really no way to upgrade the video, WiFi, or processor on your laptop. You're stuck with what came with the PC.
