product HP Pavilion 15 laptop

version omitted

omitted series

Omitted SKU

I want to update my card to a more modern grapical allowing better performance in games.

You could advice me my options are regarding what an expansion/upgrade.

Kind regards



15 - e020tx is the model and there a processor i7 and switchable graphics with Radeon HD 8670 so it is pretty high-end as laptops go, but it's what they are. On laptops in general in most cases, including your case, no video 'card is' to be removed, replaced or upgraded. She is soldered directly to the motherboard. There is no way to upgrade in other words.

  • HP Pavilion 17 laptop-f113dx: Ram memory upgrade

    Although this would mean taking this laptop apart to do this, I want to know if the RAM memory is expandable for the HP Pavilion 17 laptop-f113dx.

    A site specific Web says it is expandable to 16 GB.  The vehicle currently has 4 GB of RAM and all I want to do is double that - go up to 8 GB.

    I wouldn't take this laptop out to see that it is not extensible.

    Can someone give me a heads-up on this update for this laptop?

    Thank you very much!!

    Through 2, 3 page in this manual:

    There are two slots for RAM, you can put two 8 GB of RAM of the same exact brand & plug as shown in the manual. Then max up to 16 GB is possible.

    Data sheet:

    Go through page 104, 105 in the manual steps of replacement are not easy, and I would say you contact center of HP service in your region for assistance if you are under warranty as it will void the warranty for major disassembly can cause unexpected problems, if you're not used to it.

  • HP Pavilion 500-527nb: GTX-750TI (Graphics) upgrade. Need help please, thx.


    A very quick question.  The GeForce GTX 750 tiis usable on my HP Pavilion 500-527nb desktop PC?

    It is WITHOUT changing my diet, which has 180W...

    That power seems too low, but the PC came with a GTX 745 (OEM) that uses the same power that the GTX 750ti, yet when I check the specs on the site of GeForce, it says power to minimum power supply must be 300 w (for both 745 oem and 750 ti)...  So, I'm confused.

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi again Kebess,

    Thanks for the quick response!

    I don't know the problem install the ti GTX 750, but I can't guarantee that you won't have problems.

    Hi there @murray62east,

    Thank you for visiting the Forums HP's Support and welcome! It is an excellent site to find answers and ask questions. I understand that you are curious about a replacement of a graphics card.

    Unfortunately the graphics cards are not replaceable on laptop HP Pavilion dv2000. They are directly attached to the motherboard. The only way to replace a graphics card would be to replace the entire motherboard.

    Hope that I have answered your question.

    Have a great day!

    Unfortunately not, as many, many, many mobile phones, is impossible to pass video card on your computer without replacing the entire machine and the cost is more than buying a new, better care machine.

    Buy a VGA compatible PCIe x 16. It's in your pocket and compatibility with the operating system.

    What's in the box of HP Mobile remote control

    1 of 3. Theoretically you can upgrade the processor as follows:

    Processor Intel Core i7-820QM 1.73 GHz, SC turbo up to 3.06 GHz with 8 MB of L2 cache
    and 1333 MHz front side bus (FSB)

    Frankly I would not worth it. The workload and potential will weigh much more heavily in the balance than the gain of performance negigible. An SSD would be much easier and would provide even more performance gain in any other game.

    The GeForce 230 M is the best graphics available in this series, so there is no motherboard better. Graphic design is not a replaceable but welded card to the motherboard. There is only one available for this model fan. Perhaps you could improve its performance with best chocks composed or perhaps thermal thermal but it's a cutting-edge engineering.

  • Pavilion t441.uk, graphic upgrade

    Is it possible to update the graphics on the t441.uk.  You want to play FM 2011 and it is so slow. I've already updated the Ram. But I don't understand how the graphics upgrade works.

    My norton 360 says my computer is the RADEON 9200 128 MB video card, it says I have a secondary school the same as well.

    Hello Rascal, apparently, your system may be a little old to run any recent video games.

    Here a link to the plug on the motherboard, and it shows the system comes with 512 MB of system memory and a maximum of 1 GB of system memory.

    It also has a video feature embedded VIA with 64 MB of video card memory. It has a slot machine video AGP.

    Carpet is it possible to upgrade the video card AGP, but I doubt you'd see much improved performance.

    Just some thoughts.
