I have this pc link: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04085185 and i want to upgrade it. Since it is running slow on games (i know it isn't a gaming pc) I just want to upgrade it a bit, if i can.

Generally you can't do much to upgrade all in ones, they are generally made with laptop style components & have extremely limited potential for changing anything. When purchasing they are best considered to be an unimprovable  sealed box.

 

In this particular case:-

the processor is soldered to the motherboard so cannot be changed,

the machine has no PCI-e slots so you cannot improve the graphics

you have only 2 RAM slots - which may enable you  to increase RAM up to 16GB depending on what is currently fitted - but to do so you may need to discard the existing RAM

you could no doubt change the hard drive - possibly to a SSD (but while this could improve general responsiveness it would not improve game performance significantly)

 

The only way to significantly improve this for gaming is to replace it.

Hi with that all-in-one the best thing I could see for an upgrade would be 8+GB if total memory and possibly a fast SSD to get a better overall experience. I notice it has HD 8400 GFX (AMD APU) though the AMD APU itself is relatively week, so you might be somewhat ok there with low settings you can always toggle the in-game resolution to lower settings (from the default 1080) to get better FPS. Commonly all-in-one's are extremely limited concerning any type of gaming other than basic online type games they are meant for convenience and style.

Thanks for the answers. I can run most games on 55-65 fps, low res, low quality, etc. so it's fine, i just wanted to upgrade it a bit. But still thanks.

Only thing I can think of is Bloatware. Have you removed all the bloatware off that PC?
