Your machine has integrated video. According to the specs you can upgrade using the PCI-Ex16 expansion slot. The ATI Radeon you listed should work for you...

    According to the specs I found on the 9400 GT it should work in that PCI-E slot.

    Info: XFX GeForce 9400GT - 1GB DDR2, 128-bit, DVI+VGA, HDTV, HDCP - PCI-Ex16 v2.0 (550MHz, 800MHz)

    You'll want to verify the bus speeds that your motherboard will support (550/800) but the initial specs look like it should work fine for you.

Add another video card to my Acer T108-UA381B to have two displays but system only see new card. Does not recognize the bus video


most desktops disable on board GPU in favor of the better add-on card. Your best bet is get an add on card with multiple outputs and hook all your monitors to that card. Using 2 different cards is a pain in the aft.

Acer Aspire T180 is missing Video Controller Driver


Find out what type of Nvidia graphics card it is, then goto the nvidia site and download the installer from them. The installer usually supports multiple families/models of cards. But yes, you need to download the installer for Win XP pro.
You can do it manually, or have it automatically scan for the hardware and download the correct driver automatically.

Here's a link to the automatic --> http://www.nvidia.com/Download/Scan.aspx?lang=en-us

New graphics card


You can buy an Nvidia 8800GTS with 320MB for $180, and a 9600 woth 512MB for 130. If I were you I'd pick either of these, they're both good cards for a good price.

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 >>>>>>>>>

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!!

Aspire t-180 4-pin power plug


Your aspire does not include a PCI-Express power connector... that's why you'll need to buy an adapter cable that transforms two other type of connectors (molex) available from your power supply into the one you need to feed power to your video card.

You may need a cable like this...
