Installing AGP video card

I have an Acer Aspire T135 desktop with onboard graphics. I'm trying to install a nVIDEA GeForce MX4000 AGP video card. When I boot, the system temporarily recognizes the new card ( I have the monitor plugged into it)but, when Windows begins to boot, the screen goes blank and the signal light goes yellow.

    Therein lies the problem.....when the AGP card is physically installed, the output from the main (onboard) graphics doesn't get a signal to the monitor either. I tried booting with the AGP installed and the monitor connected to the OB and never got a signal at all.

    When I boot with the monitor connected to the new card,I initially get a signal.....it shows the details of the new card in the upper left corner...goes through the Acer bootup process, then goes blank JUST as it's going into Windows bootup.

    I booted into setup, checked the BIOS and I only have a choice between 'Onboard/AGP' or 'PCI'....nothing that lets me choose between the onboard AND the AGP.

    So, with the AGP card physically installed, there's no way to SEE my way through installing the drivers for it.

Don't boot with the monitor connected to the card. You need to let it boot into windows and install the drivers for it first. Once you do that,shutdown and restart with the monitor plugged into it and it should work.

Video card upgrading issues


Once the Video card is inserted the motherboard, it automatically selects the video card and at the BIOS settings just select the one with an AGP selection, then boot up the computer. Install the driver that comes with the video card. It might also ask you to restart... just select Ok then its done.

Hi. I want to play games on my Acer Aspire SA80 Desktop, but every time I install the game, it says the video card is not supported. I don't know what to do. Please help!


As per Acer this computer model has a Integrated SiS Mirage Graphic onboard card or a seperate
AGP 8x Add-on Card (selected models). It looks like the game you are trying to install requires advanced graphics card.

Please specify the game you are trying to install and also specify if you have a AGP card installed (and what is the make and model of the same).

If you do not have a AGP card installed , we can check the game specification and try to install a AGP card and check with it.

Hi, my display card on a acer aspire t310 died. Which card do i need to get? AGP PCI-e?


AGP video cards are the best and latest generation video cards. Depending upon your requirements, especially it you play games that have high graphics requirements, go for the G-Force graphics card with as much video RAM as possible. Check out the various G-Force graphics cards.

Upgrading graphics card


Connect the monitor to the onboard video connector first. then
you need to disable the on-board graphics in the BIOS save the setting and shutdown. Then connect the monitor to the GeForce video connector and boot up then you will get a video signal on the GeForce video card.

Are You sure the graphics card is not defect?
When I installed a graphics card instead of the onboard
circuit, the SIS Mirage was disabeled automatically.
I have installation CD for the graphics, of course.
Also, I thought that disabeling devices could be done
through the control panel, "hardware devices".

Graphics card for my computer


Hi

I am afraid Dimension 3000 has no support for PCI-e or AGP Video cards. You can however install a PCI Video card in one of the three PCI slots. Just ensure that the PCI Video Card you get is universal (i.e. supports both 3.3 and 5 volts).

When you have your new PCI Video card, check here for guide to install the hardware.

Your new video card might be bad. Or you just might need to reseat your new card, might have a bad connection. Not sure how new your BIOS is? You might need to change a setting in your BIOS to stop using the on-board video.

My BIOS auto detected my video card, but your BIOS might not be that up-to-date.
