  1. Hello everyone!
    Since Hp Forums are a PAIN to get into, I thought I'd ask the good ol' Techspot community! ^_^
    Anyways, I have an HP Touchsmart IQ770 (the very first modle I think...) and I was just wondering if anyone knows if there is a way to upgrade the nvidia graphics card in it. The graphics card is a Nvidia Geforce Go 7600.
    I got this computer (Which I LOVE!) about a year and a half ago and Nvidia has jumped fast from 7600 to 9800 and over and games are getting bigger and stronger so hopelly there is a way or I'm going to be stuck...

    Thanks for any info!

    AFAIK, there's absolutely no way to do that.
    I've seen the taken apart, and from where I was sitting, I didn't see how it could be done.

    For some models they can do it but only HP Company will be able to do it and it may cost much also.
