HP Pavilion dv7 graphics card and processor upgrade question.

I recently purchased my first laptop without doing any steady research on graphics cards, ect. My question: Is it possible to upgrade my CPU and GPU on a dv7 laptop, as to manually configuring it myself? If so, what are the available hardware products I can purchase?

 

My system information is:

 

Processor: AMD Turion(tm) Dual-Core Mobile RM-72 2.10 Ghz

Memory (RAM): 4.00 GB

System Type: 640bit Operating System

ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics Card

Re: HP Pavilion dv7 graphics card and processor upgrade question.

I am not sure about the AMD processor,

 

I do know that the Intel processor can be uprgaded but is not recommended by HP. . Your warranty will be voided.

 

I am currently upgrading my processor, since i have lack of performance and overheating issues.  You can look up alternative or cpu upgrades on line, and if there is any then you can do the swap.

 

I had to look through forums to find part numbers and compatibility.

 

Remember this is a delicate procedure and you can easily ruin your motherboard.

 

As far as the GPU,  I have not found any ability to upgrade it. It is an integrated circuit Card, so i doubt youll be able too
