this May be stupid of me BUT! i got a free lap top HP dv6 notebook. i recently bought Fallout 4 not realizing that my computer does not have what is required to play the game lol, of course impulse buy. anyhow, what can i do to make it so that the aformentioned laptop could run the game and play. I only have the one computer so IDK, what else I can do other than trying to get my money back. any info or reasonably sane answers ?

if it cant play it now, there is nothing you can do

99% of laptops are not upgradable beyond hdd or ram

Add RAM, swap in an SSD. Maybe even change the CPU (within a very narrow range of options).

Sell the HP and buy something else?

hp pavillion dv6 notebook pc. i know it has 4 gigs of ram and the game requires 8 gigs or more, also the processor is 2.20GHz and a larger processor is required, Idk what the video is because The computer does not say either nvidia or amd, most are integrated but i don't know.

It's not only the processor GHz , but rather which processor.
Likely there is nothing you can do to make this laptop run that game.
