Video card acer am1100-b1410a


Since most modern motherboards with on-board graphics are designed to switch automatically to a PCI / PCIE add-on card, you have already sort of answered your question. In many of theses situations, if the motherboard's on-board video has failed and it has not provided you any indication that it knows the video has failed (POST codes), then it will most likely not know that you have installed the add-on card and make the switch.

Sound is not comming when i change window XP from window vista


Your PC requires a more recent soundcard device driver that is compatible with Windows Vista.

You can download the required driver here-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/aspire_t180.html#driver


Please be aware that there is a different driver for Microsoft vista sp1 and above as opposed to Microsoft Vista. SP means service Pack which is a combination of updates supplied by Microsoft to make your operating system more reliable, secure etc.

If you do not know whether you have SP 1 installed, click on the start menu, right click on the computer and click on properties. Your Windows operating system is now described in the top of the window. It will say something like Microsoft Vista or Microsoft Vista SP1.

First thing to try, is to do a system restore. You can go back to an earlier time. Pick the lastest time right before you installed the updates. System restore should be found in the Control Panel.

Updating Vista Drivers


Available driver-update information is often extremely sparse, and it can be difficult to be sure that you have found the right driver for your device. We strongly recommend that you consult your hardware manufacturer for advice on updating drivers; or employ a diagnostic tool such as VersionTracker Pro that can analyze the existing drivers on your system and match them to available upgrades.
