Hello everyone, I need help with something. I was wondering how would I install a Geforce GT 710 into this laptop. My laptop is a HP and I don't know if it has an integrated graphics card, I am pretty stupid when it comes to this kind of thing so I need your guys' help. The GPU has a fan on it, I doubt that would replace the actual cooling fan so maybe this Geforce GPU is meant only for PCs and not laptops.

I most cases, if the laptop motherboard supports it, it would already be installed. It's not often that laptop hardware ships without those types of options installed (it's cheaper to use a motherboard without that slot if someone if buying one without the card).

Also, the first image of the card, that is a desktop card (you can tell by the silver backing plate). It will work nor fit into a laptop.

What is the model number(M/N) and product number(P/N) and serial number(S/N) on your HP laptop?

According to your images, you have a MSI model desktop graphic card.
You cannot install a desktop graphic card inside a laptop.
