Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a acer aspire 5100. I'm running vista sp1 ultimate 64x I have 4 gb of ram I'm having a very difficult time trying to plat Knights of the Old Republic (a game from 2000) I have a ati radeon xpress 1100 with 128 mb of ram. The card is intergrated. I've been told it is possible to increase the amount of ra by allocating some of my main ram to my video card through bios. When I tried to so that the max ram I was able to set my video card to was 128 and not the 512 I was lead to believe. My bois version is 2.5. My video card version is: ATI UMA V008.050I.017.000.18675 My question is simply is is possible to allocate more ram to the video card? If so, how and will it make any difference? Thanks, Josh

This model comes in 2 different flavors and I am unsure which one you have but here's the skinny on it:
Option 1:
ATI Radeon® Xpress 1100 chipset with integrated 3D
graphics, up to 256 MB of shared system memory

Option 2:
• ATI Mobility™ Radeon® X1300/X1600 with up to 512MB of
HyperMemory™ (64MB of dedicated GDDR2 VRAM;
up to 448MB of shared system memory), supporting

Regardless of which one you have, you should be able to set the shared memory in the BIOS, or you can use the Acer ePerformance Management software either installed on your machine already, or which can easily be downloaded from their website at this link:

http://driverstock.com/Acer-Aspire-5100-driver-download/4-21-12867/index.html
so ..my advise is to reinstall the windows xp ...cause this machine it was on xp from the first ...and this might be just the reason ..those are the drivers for it
also ...you can download Everest software ...and locate the exact name of the wifi platform ..and look after that for a vista driver for it by its name ......this way you cant be wrong ...cause you locate the suitable driver ...not the ones they feed us in packages...

Acer Aspire 6930 won't play Blu Rays


Your DVD is not Blue Ray capable. You would need to purchase a Blue Ray DVD player for your laptop, just having the software does not allow you to read them.

Check the requirements printed at the back of each game. this will tell you if the game runs. If some game is slow try disabling the antivirus while you run the game, remember to restart antivirus afterward.
Do not use software accelerator, majority of them are useless, some of them carries malaware and viruses.
