Updating laptop graphics

my question is do we have to update the integrated graphics as well or can i just update the 940m? also whats the difference between updating from device manager and going to the nvidia website urself and downloading it from there? Sometimes laptop vendors have tweaked versions of GFX drives ... I generally recommend checking manufacturer;s web site 1st, in your case HP, and if nothing there, then go to intel and n Vidia It doesnt matter what you update first although there are some default bios settings that prioritizes a certain driver.

The difference between updating from the device manager compared to downloading it manually is does that in the device manager, the program visits microsoft's website to see if the driver it will download is supported and will then proceed to the manufacturer's site automatically then download it.

It takes a lot of time compared to downloading it manually from the manufacturer's site (assuming you know what OS you have and what model of GPU you have). Even though you dont install the Intel HD 5500 and only installing the Geforce 940m it will still work, I do this in all my devices and it works It doesnt matter what you update first although there are some default bios settings that prioritizes a certain driver.

I suggest using DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) first then installing the latest drivers.

The vast majority of laptops have integrated graphics, which means the GPU (graphics processing unit) is permanently attached to the motherboard, and not removable as it is in a desktop PC.

These days, a lot of CPUs contain the GPU, which means that you would have to replace the processor in order to upgrade the graphics.

updating laptop graphics-40

I currently have a HP Envy dv7 7238hr notebook and I'm curious to know if it's possible to upgrade my graphics card and if so what cards would be compatible?Hp tech support said it was possible and said they had dedicated graphics card on their site but no luck, i even called the store customer service and still no luck. If your laptop has integrated graphics (intel hd ....or if you have an amd a-....) then the answer is an immediate no.In either case, running updated drivers on your graphics card will optimize its performance. To do this, go to the control panel, and then click on the "Device Manager." Under your device list, look for the "Display Adapters" category, which will list your graphics card.You can click on your card for further information, such as the currently installed driver information.
