    Based on my experience on 8440p, you can swap the Intel graphics mobo with a dedicated graphics one without much problem, though you'll need a new heatsink to cool the graphics chip, otherwise with the original heatsink you'll need to put a copper shim on the graphics chip.

    Part number for AMD graphics mobo: 642754-001
    Part number for discrete graphics heatsink: 642767-001

    You asked for motherboard part numbers. They are listed in the service manual :) Along with numbers for all the other parts you may require.

    Since you asked for the mb part number I thought you might want to see all the possibilities.

    Sorry about that. I didn't know you were responding to the "could you tell me the AMD graphics motherboard's model number too?" part, I thought you were telling me to look in the manual to see if I could change the motherboard for a different one, which the manual doesn't say.

    Thanks, I suspected it would be possible but I wasn't willing to take any chances on a laptop that even has a whitelist on wireless cards. Will be ordering the the 642754-001 from Aliexpress for $60 (They have over 300 in stock so if anyone's interested that's probably the cheapest option). Ordered the correct heatsink too. I will post back here with results when I get the board in a month.

    Another thing I was interested in:

    I was looking at the i7-2630qm as it was the cheapest quad on ebay. However I'd like to know if anyone has successfully run a quad in an 8460p that has the HD6470m in it, I'm aware that just the i7 quad on its own is okay (from earlier posts), but I get the feeling the single heatpipe wouldn't be suitable for a GPU and a quad i7 at the same time. Can anyone who's tried it confirm if it works well? (Meaning under 80c on both CPU and GPU under load.)

    Apparently 8460p was available with i7-2720QM + HD 6470M when it was out so I think you're good to go.

    Also from this site: http://benyouhui.it168.com/thread-5473169-1-1.html
    The guy was selling his 8460p with i7-2720QM (upgraded from i5-2430M) and HD 6470M, in point no.3 he mentioned it has been used as a server for 3 months without any problem so I guess the extra 10W TDP isn't an issue.

    Got the board already somehow (1 week from china to UK is almost impossible but it happened) and I swapped the new board in just fine. Hoping I can sell the old board and get enough to cover at least half the cost of a i7-2630qm.

    Hey guys, so I was sold a HP 8460p off ebay that has some damage to the back corner. It looks that the laptop was dropped and this was something I wasn't told about when purchasing the item. Long story short, I got my refund from the seller and now I am trying to replace the damaged items and bring this HP 8460p back to life.

    So looking at it, I will need the whole bottom base and the top palmrest and the left side hinge.

    Looking at ebay for used parts, there are a few replacement bottom base's as well as some palmrests but they identify a different part number. I'm unsure the part number I have but I am having a hard time understanding why would these items not be the same. Sure, newer ones may have some revisions but would the top and bottom parts not be the same?

    The 8460p that I have has the i7 processor and 'SS' usb ports if that matters.

    Any help/suggestions would be appreciated :)
