hello i use an hp pavillion dm3 a notebook but its not gooad for gaming so i was wondering if it is possible to upgrade the ram,processor and the storage .
 
You would have to go second hand with parts, but i personally would not bother. Put the money you would spend (and time + effort) into a new laptop or PC. If you are really wanting to do this, i would start with maxing the ram, install an SSD, and do a clean install of Windows. This will probably do more than you think performance wise. With the processor, CPUs of the same series with faster clock speeds may be the way to go, but there is an element of luck with regards to the bios.

Gaming depends primarily on strong graphics. Secondarily on a good cpu.
Unfortunately, neither can be upgraded on laptops.
You CAN upgrade the hard drive to a SSD and upgrade the ram, but that will not help gaming much.
