Graphics Card Upgrade Available for HP Pavilion dv7 notebook?

HP Recommended

I own a HP Pavilion dv7-WV705AV notebook and want to play Diablo 3 but my ATI Mobility Radeon 5650 is apparently too slow. I need to upgrade to an HD4870 or better. Can I do this?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, your graphics adapter is integrated into the Motherboard and as such, is not an upgradeable component.

 

Regards,

I have a DV7 6165 with dual video AMD RadeonHD 6750M &  AMD Radeon HD 6620G.

I would like to upgrade the video card from this Class 2 Mid Level video to a AMD Class 1 card.

Where can I go for availability & buying information.

Also I would like to know if I can upgrade my keyboard to a backlit version.  I play games in the dark and a backlit keyboard would be a great help.

 

Thanks a lot

Hello joetrainer31

 

Unfortunately, the answers is "NO". Notebooks aside from a very select few have dedicated graphics meaning they are on-board or built on to the motherboard. This makes the process of upgrading it so difficult the cost would be less to just purchase another computer.

 

I hope this answers your question. Thank you for bringing your question to the HP Forums. Have a great day!

Hi. I have a Pavilion dv7 A5F92AV with a Intel HD Graphics 4000 as my 1st device and an NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M as my 2nd device. Is it any possibility to upgrade my graphics? And if so to what? And what would be max upgradable? Thanks for any answer.

Thanks for the answer. I guess I have to figure this out myself. As I have changed graphics cards in an old laptop before I'm not unfamiliar to the process. I was more curious on how high I could go with the current chipset I have. Right now I'm contemplating between a GeForce GTX 680MX and a GTX 780MX. But I have also heard that the ATI Radeon is a faster and better GPU but I would be unsure of the model that would work with my Notebook. Thanks anyways for the response.
