The graphics adapters in today's HP notebooks cannot be upgraded or replaced without replacing the entire motherboard with one which may have better graphics.


You would have to consult the service manual, chapter 3 for the list of supported motherboards for your PC, which can normally be found on your notebook's support and driver page.


Needless to say, the cost and labor attendant to such a project would exceed the cost of purchasing a new notebook with the video solution you want for gaming.
