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

Re: Changing Onboard Video

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.

I want to put my acer motherboard into a tower as the flat desktop model is taking up too much space but I will need to know exactly where everything connects to the board (power, front panel,, on/off,...

Only a true Acer manual for this model of PC could assist you. They provide a special connector in this model, for the front panel connectors, that cannot be simply connected in a standard Desktop or Tower case.

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.

Hi i have acer p4 with windows 7 and i have lost my drivers cd(sound and video) plz help me to find them

You have to download drivers for Video,Sound,INF and LAN(if u r using internet). Look don't go to Acer site for drivers fist check your chipset if intel chipset then go to
To check your chipset go to RUN type "Dxdiag" hit enter click yes
click on Display Tab u will see Name of chipset something like
"Intel 865/845g___ Express chipset family" 
Write it down in a page then go to "" to search for driver of that will definitely get.
It will 100% work. Good Luck

Can not start acer veriton 5600g with ati 1650 pro agp card ? The bios doesn't seem to recognise the card and it beeps when i disconnect the onboard vga. Any help will be appreciated... thanks

How did you disconnect the onboard VGA?
The onboard VGA device must be disabled in the BIOS and the ATI graphics card inserted in the computer.
When you bootup it should default to a standard Windows VGA configuration, then install the ATI video driver o you can get high resolution graphics.
