Video cards on laptops are on the motherboard, therefore it is not possible to change the video card, also there are not expansion slots for inserting a graphics card.
The video card usually uses shared memory ie. uses part of the main memory. It is possible to upgrade with more main memory and increase the available video RAM in the BIOS configuration.

Hi youblazer,

That notebook does not have the capablity of swapping out the graphics chip set. I would recommend going HERE and make sure that you have the correct driver for your machine. There is an option that will allow HP to determine the correct driver for that card.

Aside from all that, there is a new option just coming out called "an external graphics adapter" Asus and Fujitsu are the only one I know of so far that have one, and it's quite pricey but, hey all new equipment is, and then it comes down in price.

Lastly you know you have an hdmi connector that if you wanted you can move the graphics from the laptop to your HD TV set for High Definition Gaming.

That's about all the options I can think of.

Good Luck!

You wont be able to play a "demanding" game on any integrated graphics chip. While you may be able to start the game and load into it, it will be unplayable, or a painful experience at low resolution at best. I play World of warcraft, which isnt very taxing on a system, unless you put settings on ultra and high shadows. I can play it on my laptop with the same chipset that you have, but i am forced to play at the lowest resolution, and turn all settings to off/lowest, and it still only gives me 20ish frames per second. Ideally you would want to never dip below 30 to be playable As far as the HDMI port, that is just how the video signal is being sent after leaving the video card/chip. Even with the HDMI, your lack of dedicated graphics will be your limiting factor, and will not get any better by sending it through HDMI.
