The Aspire 5000 actually has a 128mb video card. i am using one right now as a matter of fact. Reboot your acer. when you see the acer logo. press F2 once into the bios screen move to the next tab. High light the 64mb next to the video adaptor and high light 128mb.

If you have done all that then that means there is only one reason why your video is distorted. That means your video card is busted. You will need to have that replaced.

What video driver do you use in Acer Aspire SA80 with SiS FX/GX Mirage Graphics


The SiS driver that Acer offers for the Aspire SA80,

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

On this page under,

A) Select Product Family
Left-click on Desktop

B) Select Product Line
Left-click on Aspire

C) Select Product Model
Scroll the side bar down, Left-click on Aspire SA80

There are Three VGA drivers listed. You won't see the 3rd one, SiS, until you scroll the side bar down.

VGA SIS VGA Driver 6.14.10.3680
14.6MB 2008/12/10

Left-click on the orange square to the left of this driver file name.
(Has a white down arrow pointing to a line)

A small window will come up.
Opening VGA_SIS_6.14.10.3680_Xpx86.zip

Left-click on the empty circle to the left of - Save File
(If it does not already have a green dot in it)

Now go below, and click on OK.

I suggest you save the file, instead of opening it directly. It is a Zip file, and you may not have an Unzip program on your computer, to 'Unzip' it.

(Zip file is a condensed file. Used to send large files over the internet. You have to un-condense the file, or Unzip it)

If you do not have an unzip program I suggest download 7-Zip. It's free.

Go to the place the Zip file downloaded to.
Either My Documents, or on your desktop screen.
(Start>My Documents. Could also be in a sub-folder of My Documents>Downloads)

Double-click on the file name. (Be sure you have an Unzip program installed before you do)

Follow the simple instructions of the unzip program.

Hi,
You need drivers for your system.
All the official acer drivers for your system are here :-

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/desktop/power_s260.html#driver

As listed at the site:-

Realtek Audio Driver is your Multimedia Audio Controller.
NVIDIA VGA Driver should be your Video Controller, if that don't work try SIS VGA Driver.

SiS 661 chipset driver should fix your usb problem, if it dosn't update windows to SP2.
Get that from here: http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/. Then try again with SiS 661 Chipset Driver.

You should also install the rest of the drivers for your aspire sa80.

You said you had no access to internet so burn the drivers using a friends computer (one with internet) and install from the disc and you should be fine.

Good Day,

You are on the right page, the video memory(VRAM) is located directly on the video card, which means you have to replace the whole card. The good news is they are pretty easy to install. Make sure you check the spec of your card and get the right socket, AGP or PCI. When you look at the slot on your motherboard if the video card is plugged onto a brown slot it is AGP, if it is a white slot it is PCI.

Hope this help.
