Hello @Chaoyang,

 

Unfortunately, CPU and graphics upgrades won't work. Laptop graphics are usually integrated and unfortunately, your CPU (the Intel® Core™ i3-5157U Processor) uses a BGA socket which means the CPU is also integrated into the motherboard.

 

If you want to upgrade the CPU and the GPU, you need to swap in a new motherboard which is usually both costly and risky.

 

It will take up to 16GB of DDR3L-1600. Samsung and Hynix are recommended.

 

The HDD can definitely be swapped out for a SATA SSD. There also seems to be an M.2 option but this can only be confirmed by opening up the laptop.

 

Here's your computer's Maintenance and Service Guide which will detail all replacement procedures. Page listings of components are on page vi.

 

Hope this helps,

Eddy
