Hi @erikoz,

I hope you enjoy your visit to the HP Support Forums. I understand you have questions about an upgrade. I will be glad to help you.

 

You have one of the notebooks that the graphic card can be changed to any one of the one listed.

 

It does not show any SSD for this notebook, but that does not mean it can not take it.  That is only 1 slot for a hard drive so you would have to remove the current hard drive. I like hybrid drives for notebooks.

 

Please keep me informed of how things went. 

If you require further assistance, let me know and I will gladly do all I can to help you.

Whoa!!! Some misinformation in both directions here:

 

g6-1325sa

 

The Manual you have posted is not for that model because the E2 processor is not listed. 

 

E2 processors are soldered to the motherboard. There is no way to upgrade the video short of replacing the motherboard. Hate to step in from outside but I don't want to see anybody spend any money on something that will not work. 

 

This is the right manual:

Hi Huffer, i have checked the manual you gave me and i bought a i5 2540m cpu, so when i took of my e2-3000m cpu i saw a slight difference between i5 and e2, the i5 is slightly bigger in size and the socket of i5 is G2 and my socket is FS1 so i cant replace it, i cant understand what cpu's are compatible from the manual with my motherboard, please help!

I guess I assume a basic understanding. You are trying to replace an AMD processor with an Intel. That will never work.

Normally I have no problem advising but you say you have an E2 AMD processor but none of the manuals I have found list that processor and as far as I know such processors are not removeable. So we are having a disconnect here. Can you post a picture of the processor? You have to carefully study the manual and figure out which motherboard you have and what processors work on that motherboard. The whole long list of processors is not meant to indicate that any of those processors can be installed on any of the motherboards. I am a little nervous suggesting that somebody who did not know all AMD and all Intel processors are incompatible should be tearing apart a laptop but willing to proceed.
