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

No video signal on acer aspire x1200. changed monitors and cables


You should be more specific next time - is it a laptop or a desktop computer, do you have additional graphics card, etc? I've already googled for a PC type. You have a desktop PC which comes with integrated graphics. It has two video ports onboard - VGA and HDMI. Which one did you try? It could also be that you have additional graphics card installed. In this case integrated graphics card is turned off automatically. Sometimes people accidentally connect their display to the wrong port - you should check that. It could also be, that you don't see any video output, because of faulty hardware like RAM, CPU or the Motherboard. Do you hear any beeps or other sounds during startup?

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.

Hi, my display card on a acer aspire t310 died. Which card do i need to get? AGP PCI-e?


AGP video cards are the best and latest generation video cards. Depending upon your requirements, especially it you play games that have high graphics requirements, go for the G-Force graphics card with as much video RAM as possible. Check out the various G-Force graphics cards.

Upgrading graphics card


Connect the monitor to the onboard video connector first. then
you need to disable the on-board graphics in the BIOS save the setting and shutdown. Then connect the monitor to the GeForce video connector and boot up then you will get a video signal on the GeForce video card.

Upgrade needed?


Well, i took a look whaats on your Acer, you definetly need to upgrade your graphic card, and u need a lot more memory.
The graphic card u need is an APG 8X card, make sure that the new graphic card is a fast one coz your processor is a sempon, its like an intel celeron, not realy made for games.
The momory you have is 512mb, you have 2 slots and you can max have 2gb, i sugest you buy 2x1gb sticks, the memorytype is 184 Pin DIMMs 400MHz.

Here is the details for your pc:

HAVE BEEN TOLD BY EA GAMES THAT MY COMPUTER IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THEIR GRAPHICS. IS THIS TRUE . WHAT CAN I DO. ACER ASPIR M1610


it's not really the computer... that appears to be a dual core with 2gb of ram.... you will most likely need to invest in a video card with suffiecient onboard memory to run the games

Trying to find out how to allocate more ram to the graphics(currently only 8mb when i was told it could be up to 358, on my acer aspire 5920 5a2g16mi.


u can not change it ! but u don;t need to ! the video card will take the amount needed ! (if u don;t use any video application will take the minimum amount(8MB), when u start playing a game for example will increase the memory until it satisfies the needs, but not more than 358MB...)
