For your kind information Laptops VGA card are builtin chipset up along with the main board and you cannot replace it until you replace the entire motherboard - Also note that when there is complaint with VGA or as you said missing VGA will end up the display. I think that your problem is missing VGA driver that you can download it from Acer support site and install it. If so you have to visit any of this sites

I installed a game on acer aspire 5315 but it will not load due 2 d3dx9_41.dll missing. any help plz


Simply please try uninstalling the game and reinstall. If you are using a Windows Xp machine and it is a Laptop then it is likely the graphics card in the machine is not able to handle the level of graphics being displayed in the game.

If you are checking the graphics card driver you may want to take note of any stickers on the machine indicating the brand of graphics card for example if it is a NVIDIA graphics card you will need to go to the NVIDIA site download and install the most recent graphics driver for the card and try again. If it fails it is likely the video card not being able to handle the levels of graphics as mentioned before

I have acer 5745 model which is with intel HD graphics.When I go to graphics properties it shows minimum graphics memory of about 128 MB and maximum graphics memory 1051 MB. So,my question is does acer...


You may be able to increase the video RAM in the BIOS configuration.
The laptop's built-in video card most likely uses shared RAM, it uses part of the main RAM models and the more you grab for the video RAM the less main memory is available, You may need to install more RAM to make the laptop run better.

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop


Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

Can arcer laptop graphic card be upgrade


No, your video card cannot be upgraded, it's integrated in the motherboard. The only thing you can do is to assign it more memory.

Can i get a graphics card for a acer laptop


Not without replacing the entire motherboard. When it comes to laptops, the video cards are built directly into the motherboard, so it is one unit. This is done in part to help create a more compact product. There are a few laptops that have separate video cards. These are very rare and require a specialized video card.

I have an acer aspire 1355xc {1350 series} notebook no video card


It's pretty common for notebooks to have 'integrated graphics' which can't be modified or replaced since they are part of the mother board and normally also share memory with other functions. Only higher end units aimed at gamers are equipped with video graphics hardware that can be replaced to upgrade.
If you would like to give your system a boost, consider adding some RAM; it is pretty cheap and then the 'stolen' 64 MB of memory used by the graphics chips is no longer a bottleneck.  
"The second omission is that of a separate graphics card. Playing sophisticated 3D games is becoming a reality with a lot of the latest mobile chipsets, but certainly not yet for people on a budget, those days are still some way off. Instead, what Acer has supplied is an integrated S3 Savage 8 graphics core, which shares 64MB of the system memory."
