Question about Acer Veriton 5600GT PC Desktop

1 Answer

Changing Onboard Video

I recently bought an Acer Veriton 5600GT in an online auction. (Great machine so far) I cannot get the motherboard to accept a new video card in place of the on board video chipset. I put a new card in and the machine looses the video output so I am not sure it even boots up - no BIOS screen, no startup screen. I cannot get the audio to come out the onboard sound card port. It will only come through the internal speaker. Is there some motherboard DIP switches I need to change? Is there a motherboard manual I can download? Andrew

Hi Andrew, The manual for Acer Veriton 5600 series is available at the Product User/EndUser Website (Downloads) at The filename of the manual is VT5600series_EN_0403.pdf Re add-on video card - select video card to be used in your CMOS/BIOS. Press "Del" during the bootup process. Alternately, you casn run the built-in diagnostic to diagnose any system changtes such as an add-on video card. Re onboard soundport - try either the front or the rear line/speaker out. Verify that the drivers are properly installed in your Device Manager. By default, when you have an external speaker, the internal auto cuts-off. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turned out or should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

Installed 512 MB RAM (PC3200, DDR, 400 MHz), but not recognized. Checked to be sure it is well-seated.

Memory modules for this system need to be installed in pairs, meaning a single module will not work.
