Kartik:
You don't.

Laptops don't have upgradeable CPU cards like deshtops. The 980m chip is soldered to the machines motherboard.

A GTX 1080 also requires up to 165 watts of power, for the graphics alone. Probably 2 X your laptops power supply capacity. Finally, if someone tried fitting one to a laptop, it would soon melt (literately)

Aerialnine:
You upgrade that laptop by buying a real desktop computer and putting a GTX 1080 in it and using that laptop as a door stop…..
Dave:
Chances are, you don't. It's rare that any laptop allows for an upgrade. Which one do you have?
Laurence I:
no. it was not designed for it.
