    Whoops. Sorry bout that..... =P

    I'm trying to upgrade the built in graphics card, but I'm fairly certain that you can't exchange it for a better one, and I'm also unsure about the possibility of an external one.

    It is not listed as a option on the support website so I really doubt it. 
      Product no longer made.

The aspire 5315 has an option for an upgraded GPU, however the model that came with anything other than the intel graphics accelerator was known as the 5750 (Multi Media) laptop, the mobo however is the same in both of these machines, and with some soldering you can install a PCI-x x16 Mobile graphics slot to the mobo, you'll also have to solder in some caps and resistors to make it operate properly, then you would have to upgrade your cooling to fit. so the answer is both yes and no, yes in the fact that if you want to hack up another laptop to make yours better and have the skills to do it, and no for the normal person who doesnt understand electronics or soldering, so its 50/50.... good luck

I am sorry. The answer is still no. The video chip is built into the mother board and their is no such thing as a motherboard upgrade for a latop. One of the drallback of a laptop. Some of the more expensive gaming laptops have a separate video card but they are already maxed  out at that.

Find the exact type of graphics accelerator you have and get the driver directly from the intell website... it's usually the newest one... that may help somewhat ... unless there is something new about i'm afraid laptops don't allow themselves too much room for upgrades other then memory and hard drives

Gfxui stopped working


Graphics User Interface stopped working.......

Based on what?

Error message, or your own statement?

Does an external VGA monitor work, attached to the laptop?

Actually I should state, "External media device"

I have no idea of what laptop we are talking about here, so don't even know if your laptop HAS a VGA port on it.
Might only be HDMI or Mini-HDMI, or DVI.

So I'll stop here until the laptop manufacturer name, and model name/number is stated........

Model name/number is on the Bottom of the laptop.
Example: Acer Aspire 5535-5315
Acer = Manufacturer
Aspire = Model Series
5535 = Model Series number
5315 = Model Number

Hiya ive just installed silent hunter 5 and it seems the graphics cardbisnt good enough is it possible to purchase a better graphics card as this laptop is only a couple of months old?


Unfortunately it is not possible in a lower end computer. Lower end computers have integrated video cards on the motherboard. High end gaming laptops typically will have a replaceable graphics cards but generally run over $1000 (for the laptop)
Anything with Intel graphics chips are so so terribly sub par to even the cheapest discrete graphics cards I'm afraid.
You can build a budge gaming desktop for around $700.
Comment back if you have any questions.

Hi, I cannot boot my acer aspire 5315 laptop, No boot filename received. PXE-M)F: Eciting broadcom PXE Romm. No bootable device. Insert boot disk and Press any key. Please can you help. Mant thanks


It looks like your hard disk went invisible, and BIOS is trying all alternative boot options before it says that there's no boot device available.
I'm afraid that the most probable diagnosis is that the hard disk is broken; anyway you'll need hands-on service to establish what's wrong and what can be done.

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.

My acer 5315 laptop just went off one day still has power but no picture to screen or external monitor.guess the graphic card has gone. but dont know how to fix it could you help


Since, there is no display even when an external monitor is connected to the Notebook, this confirms that the issue is with graphics card.
As with most of the Notebook, the graphics card installed in this notebook is also integrated on the Motherboard and is not user replaceable. In this case, the complete motherboard is changed. So, it's required to contact any service center to get it replaced without damaging any other internal components.

About graphic card of ace aspire 5335 and rendering


As this chip has no dedicated video memory it will be dependent on how much RAM you have installed in your notebook. Maximum amount it can share from system memory is 384MB. It will probably be capable of rendering the scene but depending on the complexity of your scene it could take a while.
For more info on your integrated graphics card which is an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD visit http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Graphics-Media-Accelerator-4500MHD-GMA-X4500MHD.9883.0.html

Is this any graphic card available for aspire 5315?


No, your laptop has an integrated graphics controller and no slot to put a better one in there. That is typical for a laptop, most do not have slots for upgrading components like desktops do.

Acer 5315-2713 add memory card


OK, In general for the 5315 series, the memory replacement should be roughly the same.
You seem to have an idea what you're doing, so here's a little specifics:

Here's what you see once you get the giant "thermal door" cover off. To remove the cover, first, remove the four screws. Now carefully slip a thin tool like a table knife under the edge of the cover where the indent is and work around towards the front and back of the laptop.
DON'T pry along the side towards the side of the laptop or you'll break those longer tabs. That's the edge which goes in first when you replace the cover.


The RAM pops out easily by spreading the clips on either side.
