Windows 7: Graphics card on HP Pavilion d6

Graphics card on HP Pavilion d6


I have a "HP pavilion dv6" and over time as games have become more advanced the graphics have become slow and stutters a lot. I have adjusted the games parameters to the minimum but the display still jumps like it is slow motion.

The game I play the most is "Train Simulator 2017" and "Forge of Empires" which is know taken longer to load each time I wish to play. I regularly clear the cache of cookies and other rubbish.

Is there any way that I can update the graphics card, or is it part of the mother board. The current processor is an "Intel i3"

The driver for the graphics card is up to date.

Thank you in advance for you help.

the i3 pavilion dv6 came with integrated radeon 5650 graphics that is not upgradeable. If your system has slowed down over the years, re-installing windows will get you back to original speed, although it may not feel like it because games today require more computer power than when you got it. As you probably know, your system (assuming its an i3-370M cpu) came out 7 years ago. If you google "cheap gaming laptop 2017" you may be tempted. Integrated graphics ability has really taken off in the last year or two.

ATi Mobility Radeon HD 5650 is a dedicated laptop graphics card.

Video Card upgrades in laptops is possible but with the cost I wouldn't even do it. Laptop Video cards are more expensive than the desktop counterparts.
