Hp 17-e049wm modding

Hi guys and Gals

I just bought this laptop and have a few questions if anyone can help

The specs:

Amd A10-5750m

HD 8650g graphics

750 gig hdd

8 gigs ddr3 ram

Currently I have been doing some research and I got into my advanced bios it turns out I am 99 percent sure this big laptop has mxm support it has the option in the bios to switch cards and also asks if I want to activate mxm.

Basically what I want to know is if it is possible to buy a mxm card and install to run dual graphics. I plan on locking the processor at 3.2 when I figure that part out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

There's not a lot of info on your system, and I can't find a service manual. But I'm pretty sure it doesn't have support for mxm cards.

Hope I'm wrong though, could you open up the bottom panel and upload a picture?

Sorry.

I will try to get a pic uploaded as soon as my kid goes down for a knap.

If you look on hp.com There is another pavilion 17 just like mine model number 17-E056sg it is running the exact same chipset and apu and everything accept it also has a mxm discreet gpu. Also I have the service manual I got it off of the hp website.

I've been trying to figure out the same thing, but I haven't even gotten as far as unlocking the bios to see the MXM options. Can you tell me how you did that?

Did you find if this is possible to run dual graphics?. Also, have you tried locking to 3.2 ? I can do this with RW everything but every time I do the lock it actually gives worse framerate . its like there's not enough power going to the igpu when the CPU is locked.
