[SOLVED] Upgrading HP All-in-One Graphics

Hi.

I can't get a straight answer on this, so I'm hoping someone can help.

I have an HP 24 df0015nw All-in-One bought in Europe. It has AMD Ryzen 3 3250U with Radeon Vega 3 graphics

I wanted to see if the graphics were upgradable.

I saw a few YouTube videos and it appears some HP All-in-Ones are, and some aren't

I asked a PC shop where I live - they said, "No".

I then asked HP Support - and they said, "Yes" (and that I need an nVidia GeForce gtx 1050 mobile 4gb)

I asked HP again, "Are you SURE?", and they said, "Yes".

I then read AMD's website about the Ryzen 3 setup, and it said that the Radeon Vega 3 is embedded in the CPU.

That info from AMD make it seem like the graphics are not upgradeable AT ALL - but, for all I know, there may be a spare slot inside for a graphics card such that once a new one is installed, it renders the old one defunct. Is that the case, and why HP appear sure that I can upgrade?

Can anyone help me out here (without telling me my computer is rubbish or anything? I love it dearly and appreciate it, but it would be nice to tinker with it and upgrade where I can.)
