I have an HP nx9600 laptop (3.6GHz with 2.5 GB RAM) with an ATI x600 video card (the highest they offered). However I'd like to upgrade the video card to rival my similarly configured Dell desktop HTPC with an NVideo GT6800T (the $400 card, I forget which letter came last)

Anyway I want the laptop to drive my Sony 1292 CRT projector and love the picture from my GT6800, however the laptop X600 doesn't seem to hold up to it, so I'd like to upgrade it.


Is this something that I can do myself (as HP doesn't offer any such upgrade option)? If so how? please be very specific (I have tons of experience upgrading desktops but not notebooks.)


thanks!

Hi cgott42,


Unless something has changed since I have opened up laptops in the past, the video chipset is soldered directly to the motherboard. There is no way, to my current knowledge, to replace a laptop's "video card."


Sorry. :(
