i just recently bought this laptop and was first satisfied with it's features.
But then.... 64MB of system video memory?
Come on Acer. And so I was thinking if I could add some graphics like buying a decent video card for it.
I heard that video cards for laptops are in PCI express.
Can my Acer use it?
IF and only IF this Acer Aspire doesn't have the ability to use a new video card, is there any other way I could improve its graphics like getting some of the built-in shared memory and putting it in the video?
When I check in the bios, it has the video memory set at 64mb. It does not give me the option to change this value like my old aspire 5100. Does anyone know of a way to increase the video memory on this lappy?
Just bought one of these ACER ASPIRE 7720G laptop's from ebay afew days back. It comes with the Nvidia Geforce 8400M GS, but i'm wondering if it's possible to upgrade this card with something that packs more of a punch.
If it is possible, what would be the ideal card for this setup?
The processor is the Intelģ C2D T7300 Processor, 2 gb ram, 250gh hd space.
I just want to know if my laptop video card is upgradable? I have the 4745G core i3 330M with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 514 VRAM. I want to know if it is possible to upgrade it to 1Gb or 2Gb any brand of video card.
Just wanted to share my upgrade experience with my Aspire 4736z. My model did not come with bluetooth installed from the factory and it only has 3 usb ports and I wanted to keep them as free as possible.
So I found a place that sells the bluetooth module and cable needed.
I installed the module and cable and everything works great. Installed the driver and now my bluetooth button works as it should.
Here is the link to the place where I bought the module from:
I just got an acer aspire 4736Z this week. I got one that came with no operating system since I got a windows 7 install disc for christmas.
I set it up just fine. I got to install a few programs.
Then I thought of hooking up an LCD monitor. But because of how my table (as in the desk I sit in front of) is set up, I made the second monitor the "Primary" via Intel's graphics options. The actual monitor on the laptop then was secondary.
All went fine. I was still able to use both displays for quite some time. Then before bed I shut the laptop down. This morning, trying to turn it on, with the monitor still attached, nothing is displaying on either. Not even the stuff that come on when the BIOS things should be showing. I tried to unplug the monitor, but the same thing happens. Nada. It's all black.
The power button led turns on, and the two little led lights below the touch pad are on. But pressing caps lock, the caps lock indicator does not light up..
I'm having an Acer Aspire 4736Z which is cannot boot.¬†
When I power on it there's power light but screen blank. No HDD activity.¬†
And I copy Bios files to my Transcend thumbdrive and enter BIOS recovery mode by pressing FN+ESC, the whole screen turn white and fan running fast! But power light no blink, Thumbdrive no power and activity.¬†
I currently have a: Acer Aspire E ¬† Model Name: Aspire E5-511-P2D6Part Number: NX.MNYAA.002 ¬† Windows 8.1Intel Pentium N3530 Quad-core (4 Core) 2.16 GHz15.6" HD (1366 x 768) 16:9Intel HD Graphics with Shared Memory8 GB, DDR3L SDRAM1 TB HDD ¬† Is there a way that i can change my video card memory. It says im using 32MB but my maximum is 1792MB. How to I make it run at 1792MB?
I am trying to disable integrated video card,because¬†it eat my ram. In BIOS (Inshyde) didn't enabled advenced menu On offical Acer site don't uploaded drivers for Windows 7 x64 and BIOS image (( Supports don't answer, just send me respond to email about¬†acceptance¬†my post.
I own this model since May 2013, and all this time I have this problem: ¬† In my drivers list the NVidia GeForce Mobile sometimes is present and most of the time not.
When it suddenly appears it will stay for a few days or weeks and I can play all the modern games happily. But then something will happen computer will reboot and the driver is no longer in the list, and for month until it will appear suddenly again. ¬† This already happened about 5 times. Unfortunately I cannot go to the repair because I bought this device in Taiwan and now I am in rural Russia. ¬† I suppose it might be a microcrack in the PCB or maybe a bad sensor or a bad cable, who knows. This is definitlely not a driver or software issue. Or is it? ¬† This device is very good, but without GeForce it looses about 25% of it's value.
I have an Acer Aspire 5585WXMi laptop, approx. 2 yrs old purchased in Singapore. It came with Intel's standard Graphics Media Accelerator 950 and I was wondering if there was any possibility of upgrading to the NVidia GPU? When I purchased the laptop I could have paid a little bit extra for the NVidia add-on but decided against (regretting now) so as far as I can tell it should be possible to add on the GPU module?
I know there has been a lot of threads questioning this and generaly speaking most people have said it is not possible, but i really dont want to believe it as its the only thing that lets my laptop down!
processor: intel core 2 duo CPU T5750 @ 2.00GHz 2.00 GHz Memory: 2GB OS: vista home premium Graphics card: Mobile Intel 965 Express Chipset Family
is it possible to upgrade this graphics card?
if i cant then what would my best option be to have the same sort of specification as my current laptop, but with a decent graphics card? or invest in getting a desktop?
what this intel graphics card thing is and why it is so terrible for playing games?
According to a Dell Rep at least.. This is mostly for the people who have the SXPS 16 with the 3670. I was speaking with a dell rep today and she told me that if I were to buy a 4670 and called tech support.
I could ask for their help to install the video card without voiding warranty. I don't know if this is true..
but does anyone know where to get a 4670 besides Dell's site where it's $109
If I bought m1730 with geforce 8800m can I upgrade it later to get the geforce 9800m? If yes, do I buy the video card and install it myself or I buy the card and dell technician will come to my house and install it for me?
I bought my XPS laptop a couple of years ago and got it with the 128 mb GeForce 8400M GS.
I read on a couple of different websites that you could upgrade the XPS videocards on the XPS.
I went to the Dell website upgrade section and when I entered my service tag number, video cards wasn't an option to upgrade; though motherboards were.
Is it possible to upgrade the videocard to the 256 mb GeForce GT; which I should have purchased to begin with? Do I have to buy a new motherboard and put the 256 chip on it? Lastly, is the 256 the only video card I can buy to replace the 128?
I want to upgrade the DELL vostro 1700 video card (8600M GT). I was thinking for a GeForce Go 7950 GTX (possibly SLI) or a 8800 GTX (again, possibly SLI). Perhaps evena Quadro FX 3500M could be suitable (if there are modifications of drivers in order to play with games).
