Upgrading Integrated Graphics

Hewlett-packard / Pavillion dv6809us

Specs: Windows Vista Home Premium 32-Bit, Pentium Dual Core 1.73 GHz/3 GB RAM
I have a Pavillion dv6809us with an integrated Mobile Intel 965 chipset. I was wondering if there was ANY way I could get an upgrade to it. The products webpage is http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/... but it doesn't say much. I have an Expresscard slot, if that does anything.

Since your computer is a laptop and the video is integrated, there is no upgrade for you.

You can't upgrade integrated graphics...the keyword is "integrated". It's built into the motherboard. If you were asking about a desktop machine, you'd be able to disable the integrated & install a video card, but with a laptop/notebook, you're stuck with what you've got. If you need better graphics performance, you'll need to buy a better laptop/notebook.

Here's the proper link to your notebook specs:


Here's some info about your graphics...it ranks 148th out of 186 tested:
