HP 15- G255SA upgradeable?

Product Name: HP notebook 15-G255SA

Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit)

Hey everyone,

Just a question is it possible to upgrade my HP noteboook 15-G255SA Grpahic card?

Currently i have the AMD Radeon HD 8400 which isnt good for gaming.

I've been searching over the internet about it but it seems like this laptop isnt really popular and help for it is limited.

Is the Grapchic card Integrated or not?

As well, is the ram Upgradeable? Currently i have 4GB but i would upgrade it to 8GB.

I have amd quad-core a6-5200 apu Processor.

IF the graphic card is upgradeable, would i have to updrage my processor to be compatible with better graphic card, i know this will matter on what type of graphic card i would like to replace with but i would come back to this after getting answer on the graphic card.

Thanks

Hi!

Unfortunately both the GPU and CPU are not upgrade-able. Most *fairly* modern laptops have those components soldered to the main board and cannot be replaces on their own.

You can however upgrade the RAM to 8 GB. Depending on your current config (whether or not the current config is a 2*2GB or a 1*4GB) you could either get only one 4GB DIMM (DDR3L-1600), 2*4GB DIMM (DDR3L-1600) or an 8GB DIMM (DDR3L-1600).

Another way to improve performance is to replace the HDD with a SSD. Your laptop will spend less time loading stuff and will feel faster on a daily basis too.
