Can I upgrade my graphic card in my HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC?

HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. I have a HP Pavillion 15 Notebook PC product number: J1X37EA#AB9  with Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4510U CPU @ 2.00GHz 2.60GHz, RAM: 12,0 GB, Windows 10 64-bits and in what comes to graphics i have Intel(R) HD Graphics 4400 and a NVidia GeForce 840M. I believe my intel graphic card is integrated in the board but the Nvidia one can be upgraded. Am I wrong or can I really upgrade my graphics card?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately the Nvidia chip is integrated and not an upgradeable component - this is the case for most consumer class notebooks.

Thanks for the answer. Is there anything I can upgrade in my hardware that can improve my gaming experience?

Hi,

 

You're welcome

 

Unfortunately, nothing that will make a meaningful improvement.

 

You may want to consider replacing the mechanical drive with an SSD - this would make a big difference to the speed your notebook will boot and load software, but would not really improve your gaming experience much, although the game would initially load faster.
