I have an HP DV7-3060us and I find that while it can handle most games fairly well at medium to low graphics I want a little more. Is it possible to upgrade the video card completely or overclock it safely to increase performance. I understand that heat dissipation can be an issue so I figured I'd ask here before I destroyed it. thanks
I know what kind of computer I have. No offense but if you do not know what you are talking about and cannot provide a useful answer then don't reply. Anyone else? If my model has no upgrade capability then fair enough, but provide a reason to me not being able to upgrade or OC.
I would not be too worried about overclocking it, many laptops are "locked" and wont allow you to modify the processor settings (safety reasons etc) as for a new GPU some laptops will allow you to change the card. These are typically higher end laptops and the word we are looking for is mini-PCI-x. If your laptop has this port then in theory you should be able to track down a new card online. I doubt your HP has it thought. Stuck with stock parts... :(
