Can I install a secondary graphics card in Acer Z5801 all in one pc


Yes you can upgrade the Graphics Card on the Acer Z5801. There is an optional Graphics Card slot on the Motherboard and you will need an Acer Geforce GT 530 Graphics Card. They come in 1GB and 2GB but quite rare to find. Your best shot is an Acer Distributor. For more help have a look at the link below:

I want 2 replace or upgrade my acer ferrari 1000 graphics card .... plz help or tell me a solution


Well,it is practically not advisable to upgrade a graphic card for a laptop.You can always upgrade it on a PC, but with a laptop it is not the best thing to do.The graphic card has two categories, on-board and dedicated,if its an on board ,then you cant change it because it would require changing the motherboard.If its a dedicated graphic card,then you still can change or upgrade it,but it is not advisable ,because the other cards would not be compatible with your machine.

In short, yes you can upgrade to a P4 cpu but from the compatibility chart at Intel support, it looks like the upper limit for this older board is the P4 2.6GHz.

Note: Even at that, running the P4 2.6 would require a BIOS upgrade to P12 or greater.

Luckily, the following link has the information you seek: (for BIOS info, click the "BIOS Version" link in the upper right corner of the compatibility table provided)

I hope this info is helpful!

Unsure of processor compatibility with laptop motherboard


You did an awful lot of work to write this question. If you will go back to the HP site, you can find full specifications for your computer and what upgrade paths are available, straight from the horses mouth, so to say. If a upgrade path is listed or indicated, you can follow it. If there is no path, you can't follow it. Simple.

While there may be some processor upgradability, my advice is keep it stock. You have the stock parts - they are suppose to work together. The best and cheapest upgrade I will recommend is put in as much memory as your computer will take and you can afford. If you start changing stuff, you will have heat issues (which may be how you got to this place to start with.)

Yes and No. Let me explain. You have taken an older board that worked with XP and tried to make it work in Win7 (which is not supported by the board). Add in your graphics card switch, and you have a real mess.

You can upgrade your motherboard (for one that is compatible with Win7 - (ie. a brand new model with Win7 certification) and use a graphics card that is also Win7 compatible, or

Go back to a configuration that worked
