Graphics card

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b038ca
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)
Is it possible to change the graphic card of my HP Pavilion Sleekbook 15-b038ca currently running on Intel HD graphics 4000. I need a higher graphics card for good gaming experience.

Hi:

 

You notebook does not have a graphics card that can be removed and replaced.

 

Your notebook has a GPU which is part of the motherboard.

 

The way the GPU can be upgraded is to replace the entire motherboard with one listed in the service manual for your model that may come with better graphics.

 

Doing such an upgrade is usually very expensive just for the part, let alone the labor if you didn't do it yourself.
