Upgraded Laptops by forum users (work in progress)


this is a list of successful upgraded laptops

All these laptops have a MXM Gpu but Not all MXM cards are the same.
Type A card ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Type B card


MXM is supposed to make repairs and upgrades possible and easier.



MXM Gpu upgrade could require a new heatsink or a modified heatsink




here a list of MXM Gpus and also some card resellers

Well, for years I've been responding to "What graphics card can I upgrade my laptop to?" with "With very few exceptions, laptops cannot have graphics or CPU upgraded as they are soldered in place in a board that is highly customized for them." Thanks for a list of exceptions, as I haven't been able to provide the appropriate counterexamples.

I've pointed at least 5 people in the last couple of days at this.
They walk away sad, but informed.

Good job.

Hello.

I have a HP Zbook 17 G3 that doesnt have a discrete GPU. Will the laptop be able to run the Nvidia K3100m GPU?

its an older gen from the HP Zbook G2 series. the Quadro M series is to expensive and not available in my country. Has anyone tested the K series GPU in the HP Zbook G3 models??

just did a edp conversion on a m4800 and installed a dell m2000m i ordered from canada. for scale, i live in texas, so it came all that way and still worked fine. you will need to do an inf mod. currently device manager says i have a k2100m, because i didn't complete the driver mod. i've custom signed the drivers so i don't want to go back and edit them again just to fix the name as nvidia control panel still displays that i have an m2000m and so do opengl games like minecraft. it's also leaps and bounds above my old m5100 firepro card. the edp conversion was as easy as can be expected from a full system board replacement. i swapped an lvds motherboard and top cover for a edp version and bought a new screen on amazon. looks really good and viewing angles are great from this new panel.

side note the panel itself looks to be from an industrial setting as the entire back of the panel has a metal reinforcing plate as opposed to a small area around the edges being reinforced.
