    This hp charcoal 15.6″ 15-g019wm laptop pc with amd review doesn’t say anything about Skype. Can it run this program? I’m very simple all I need it for is Skype and simple website such as applying for jobs, downloading some documents not many but some mainly just internet use. But my main concern is can it skype? I checked out a few others and they actually told me they couldn’t skype which in turn, turned me away. So please respond that would be great to know. Thank you.

    Can i change the processor? If yes will it run latest game?

    • wpadmin says:

      No. Microprocessors like this one are soldered on motherboard, thus, upgrading or replacing them is very very difficult

      yes you can but you have to buy a motherboard too because for plugging all the lights for the keyboard.However, The cost of those and labor cost may be more expensive than the machine itself.

        what would be a motherboard that will work in this laptop

        • wpadmin says:

          Most HP motherboards have the part number on the bottom of the laptop, printed on a white label located either behind the memory slot, or on the memory slot it self. Most of the labels will say “REPLACE WITH HP SPARE”. The part number consists of 6 numerical digits followed by a dash and 3 more numerical digits.
          Most probably part number – 750633-501 you can confirm with HP

    Can the laptop run downloaded programs, such as Minecraft, without lagging? I am possibly getting one for my kids, and that is one of the downloaded programs that they have. The computer has a 4Gb RAM, but I’m not sure how good that actually is.

    The HP 15-g019wm — Terminology used is confusing. I have a 15-pin VGA port in the laptop I want to replace. Is that what they are talking about when they say the computer has “1 HDMI output”? I need a VGA port in new laptop to connect new laptop to my 2nd monitor.

    I guess you are talking about the optical drive-
    First Remove the battery
    Remove the Phillips PM2.5×5.0 screw (1) that secures the optical drive to the computer.
    Remove the optical drive (2) by sliding it out of the optical drive bay.
    If it is necessary to replace the optical drive bracket on the rear of the optical drive, position the optical
    drive with the rear panel toward you.
    Remove the two Phillips PM2.0×3.0 screws (1) that secure the bracket to the optical drive.
    Remove the optical drive bracket (2)
