Can I replace a Graphics card on a HP Pavilion DV6-6110us

I have thought about getting a new card to start playing games a little more "seriously" but my graphics card isent quite up to par with gaming standards. I have an AMD A6-3400M APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics and the display adaptor is AMD Radeon(TM) HD 6520G 4 GB RAM 64 bit Quad Core Windows 7. HP Pavilion DV6-6110us

Hi:

 

Unfortunately, graphics adapters in most notebooks (including yours), are not upgradable or replaceable.

 

The GPUs in most notebook PC's are now a part of the mainboard.  Even the discrete chips.

Hi:

 

They are just flat out stuck where they are.

 

The only thing you can do is to make sure you have the latest graphics driver installed for best performance.

You're welcome.

 

Check your BIOS menu and see if there are any video memory settings you can change.

 

There is a video setting in my dv6810us that can allow for the machine to use 32, 64 or 128MB of graphics memory.

 

Mine was defaulted to 64 MB. i changed it to 128 MB and that helped a little.

 

Maybe yours has a similar setting you can tweak.
