Graphics card upgrade



No, no and no. You can't replace because it is soldered to the motherboard. The specs of your machine is:




You have to replace the whole motherboard and many things which cost more than buying new machine.

Graphics card upgrade

Based on the HP Notebook PC (AMD) HP 255 G4 Notebook PC - Maintenance and Service Guide and the HP PartSurfer - HP NOTEBOOK - 15-AF008AX data, this model contains the HP p/n 813971-001  MOTHERBOARD DSC R5M330 2GB A8-7410. This translates in a systemboard with an AMD A8-7410 APU (CPU/GPU) and Discrete AMD R5-M330 GPU with 2GB of dedicated graphics memory. Since this is all soldered to the systemboard, there is NO option to upgrade the GPU with a newer unit.


If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.
