    :)Hello everyone,

    I wanted to see if it is possible to upgrade/mod my hp laptop....

    Specs-
    HP pavilion
    DV6646us
    AMD turion 64 x2
    15.4 screen
    160gb Hard drive
    2048mb ddr2 sdram
    Lightscribe 8x dvd wit double layer support
    nVidia Geforce 7150M with shared graphics memory.

    Its one year old and I paid about $895 at circuit city. It has alot of info on it so I would like to stay with it.

    Upgrade/mods I am thinking of and would like to know if it is possible and how to do so....

    1.Swap screen for a newer one that has the HP light up when it is open like the apple laptops

    2.Swap keyboard for one that lights up.

    3.Place a bigger hard drive....I was thinking of a solid state drive but seem to be pricey (how would I not lose my info on the old one and where is the cheapest place)

    4.Place more memory.


    Let me know of anything else that can be done....:sadwavey:


    Thank you for any info:)
