Cannot get my graphics card to work.

I have an acer aspire t180//ast180-ud400b// amd 64 atholon x2 // my on board card is a gforce 6100 n force 405// the new graphics card i purchased is a Geforce 8400 gs PCI express. I have went through the whole disabling onboard card then Powering off the machine, putting in New card , and hooking up my monitor to new card. Unfourtanetly the MOnitor is not responding to new card and when i check in Device Manager after plugging in my monitor to OLd card I only see my Onboard card... iHAve aslo tried RIght Clicking n Scanning for new hardware but NOthing, for some reason the the PC is not Seeing that New card. Ihave also checked 4 times to See if it Card is Seated Correctly it seemed to be. ALso whats Wierd is the Small fan On new graphic card is Spinning while plugged into PC, so theres has to be a CConnection there. Acer wants my Soul and my first born for 30 minutes of tech suport

I have an acer aspire ast180-340b, I upgraded the cpu from Sempron to AMD Athlon 64 x2 3800+ but the computer keep saying I need to clear cmos. How do I clear cmos on this computer ?


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya Van Pham.

I have published a guide that deals with this very topic, it is entitled How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
You also may want to see the following guide entitled, How to Remove the Side Panels of My Computer Chassis!!!

Basically you will need to remove the CMOS battery found on the mainboard for a few seconds and then reinsert it again.

Take care!

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

RE: UPGRADE THE GRAPHICS CARD


Hi there.
Yes your machine should and will support that graphics card and higher.
Here is a link to tech specs on the Gforce 8400 >>>>>>>>>

http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_8400_tech_specs.html

You can get this card or one thats higher specs if you like but the Gforce 8400 is a very good card and i think you will like it.

Have fun and thanks for using FixYa!!

1 Ok now that i found the spec for your computer here we go you can install the amd 64 x2 but not Phenom x4 9950

2 As for the graphic card you seem to know a little about computers so you can install and pci express x 16 graphics card that only needs one slot but remember some need power and this mean you my have to upgrade your power supply.So really you can by any single slot pci express graphics card for your computer so it comes down to how much you want to spend.
3.Ok for ram your max will be 4 gbs most likely ddr2 which mean that you have 4 ram spot in your computer.
hope this help please vote for me.

Graphics card


Hi bob,

Is your onboard video busted? as i check your specs; you have these slots available in your motherboard

2 ( 2 ) x PCI ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x1 ¦ 1 ( 1 ) x PCI Express x16 ¦ 1 ( 0 ) x processor ¦ Memory

base from:
http://www.twenga.co.uk/specs-Aspire-T180-ACER-Desktop-PC-243132

so, you can go to your nearest computer shop and ask them for a videocard that uses PCI Express x16, if its for gaming then go for the higher specs, i can't assist you further with regard to the exact video card model though.
