Specs: Windows 7
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... :(

It is not feasible to overclock, and you can not upgrade your graphics chip (you do not have a graphics card the graphics chip is soldered to the mainboard)

Alright, just making sure. I knew it was dedicated but I couldn't find any info on whether it was a card or a chip onboard. Thanks!

If you want better graphics & a higher clocked CPU, you're going to have to buy a better laptop.

Here's the info about your current graphics chip:
