Re: Upgrade Video Card for Y550P?

Can't be done, most laptop has their video cards soldered onto the motherboard. The only way most laptops can have a Video Card Upgrade is to exchange the motherboard, to a motherboard with a better Video Card (the motherboard has to be for that model), if that model is made with a better Video Card and I don't believe your model was made with a better Video Card.

Also I know that you can change the video card if it is damaged but only with the exact same model as the original
