Question about Acer Computers & Internet
This computer will not connect to a monitor when booting up. It never reaches a bios menu. Everything seems to be working fine. I have power to all fans as well as the Hard disc and CD drive. I can't see anything on the monitor to know for sure that it is booting completely. I have tested the monitor on another computer and it works perfect. Here are the specs Acer Brand Processor: AMD Athlon Duel Core 64 Bit OS:Windows Vista Home Edition Ram:4 GB 500 GB Hard drive Integrated ATI Radeon Graphics I have researched for a long time on this now and it seems that it could be hardware failure due to overheating. I don't have a way to check this though. I can not test the graphics card because I don't own one at the moment. I am just trying to get a little more help on the situation so I can fix it myself. Thanks in advance.
Sounds like the wire to the power button is disconnected also remove the battery unplug form the mains leave for an hour restart the machine without the battery to reset the CMOS

try reinstall the video card driver !
check the back of the game box if 1.6 ghz is enough power its kind of odd if it does it just on that game cause your ram memory is enough !
get the new drive off the ati website !
it could be a multitude of problems ! the video card could also be overheating ! if the screens says no video signal after it stops you card is the problem!
also you motherboard could also only support 4x video card therse a lot to lean on here !

SOURCE: upgrade compatibility continued
as this pc is skt 775 and has dual core support then it is quite likely that the e5200 will work but may need a bios update to support this cpu...
just goto dells site and choose the pc u have and select drivers then download the lastest bios, transfer it to the dell pc run it as its a self extractor system will reboot perform the update then bobs ya uncle.......pop in new cpu and hey presto cheapo ugrado
#and as for the graphics card you will need to accertain which pcie version u have as most dell pc's only have pcie v1 so wont be able to handle the newer gpu's on the market.......
hope this helps

Some games require high settings, they run on phsx, sli, 256mb-512mb. Ram is also a factor, When installing a good graphics cards some things change and it takes some power to run them. Although I made one run on 480 watts its not recommended, Later as you ad more features (upgrade) 550watts is some of the minimum system requirements to run at least one graphics card. If its still doing the same thing after the power supply, Another is make sure the upnp (universal plug and play) and pnp (plug and play) are enabled in the services menu.
