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.

Graphic card for Acer aspire

One of the best ones is the ATi Mobility Radeon HD 3650. The best NVIDIA one there is the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT. But the ATi GPU is better.
You will probably need to get a new card fitted by Acer or a named specialist.

How to instal window XP into Acer aspire T180

The Aspire T180's single-core 2.4GHz AMD Athlon 64 3800+ processor and 1GB of RAM hamper its performance right out of the box, keeping it from being even a passable fit with the Windows Vista Home Premium OS we've seen on other budget machines. (The Aspire ships with Vista Home Basic.) The 160GB hard drive is also on the small side, and the nVidia GeForce 6100/nForce 430 MCP integrated graphics are not exactly top-notch tech, either.
You do, however, get a few bonuses. The software selection includes a 90-day trial of Norton AntiVirus 2006, as well as CyberLink PowerDVD, NTI CD-Maker Gold, and Acer's own performance, recovery, and security tools. And the PC does offer good expandability. Two RAM slots are free, as are an external 5.25-inch drive bay, three internal hard drive bays, two PCI Express (PCIe) slots (one x1 and one x16), and one PCI 2.2 slot. (A modem occupies a second PCI slot.) So it's possible to bump up the Aspire T180's power a bit with some carefully chosen components.

To load Win XP simply select CD-ROM BOOT option from BIOS(hit DEL / F2 key while starting up power), insert a bootable WinXP SP 2/3 CD, depending on it being Genuine Microsoft product or a cracked ver.). When prompted to hit any key, do so & follow instructions on the screen. This is assuming you are doing so for the first time, make 2/3 partitions, else re-install on 'C' Drive after formatting it. Use NTFS partition option. If any probs, pl write back & I'll give more detailed instructions.

Hi, i have acer aspire 4750G. It has 2 graphic cards, an intel HD and nvidia 540M.. currentIy its using the intel HD. I want to know how can I switch it to nvidia?

Heres how... Its normal to have 2(two) display adapters on Acer Aspire 4750G. To enable NVIDIA GeForce, install the Intel HD Family Chipset Driver First from the installation disk that is included on its package, or click here, or if link doesnt work find it here. Then install the NVIDIA GeForce Driver, also included in installation disk, or click here. That should fix it. Enjoy the 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M.

I've looked at this and sought advice from our Network systems and It people and I think the issues lies with the Graphics chip, or more probably, there may be an intermittent short in the power circuit, as the random flashing of the light is giving no clear error message

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 -->
