Hi,
Yea sorry laptops are usually difficult to upgrade more than the basics like going to a ssd or possibly adding more ram.
Processors is a big maybe
Which it does show having a i7 but the only question is it swappable.

Laptops are harder to upgrade, if your laptop only came without a dedicated GPU then you're out of luck. Spending a graphics card dock isn't very wise (But will work).

The vast majority of laptops have integrated graphics, which means the GPU (graphics processing unit) is permanently attached to the motherboard, and not removable as it is in a desktop PC.

These days, a lot of CPUs contain the GPU, which means that you would have to replace the processor in order to upgrade the graphics. Taking Intel as an example, you'll find that the same or similar GPU is used as you work your way up the Core i7 range. That means that even if you do upgrade the processor, you won't get an improvement in graphics performance.
Plus, such an upgrade will usually void your warranty.

So im stuck only way i have is to save some money then sell this laptop or just buy new Personal PC ..
Also as far as i have learned only few Laptops can be ugraded such as Alienware and very rare MSI.

P.S.
Problem SOLVED....
