Can we upgrade the video graphics for our HP IQ524? We purchased this for our son but the graphics & RAM are not the best. We know we can expand to 8gigs on the other & were told that in the HP IQ524 there was room to add an MXM near the cooling fan? I am techie impaired so I need advice

You can in fact upgrade the RAM to 8gb's and maybe upgrade the HDD to SSD or a bigger HDD.

And maybe go into the bios and try to switch around a couple settings to get some more performance likewise you can also download the GeForce Experience Drivers and GeForce Control Panel to get even more performance.

To answer your question about the graphics the answer is No you cannot upgrade the graphics that would involve switching out the motherboard for another motherboard with better integrated graphics. Because the graphics you have is currently integrated onto the motherboard.
