I neeed a USER Manual for ACER MB.SE109.002 Aspire Desktop Board Motherboard

I believe what you are asking for, is a Motherboard Manual, for the motherboard used in an Acer Aspire M5400 desktop computer,

Not available.

The motherboard is made FOR Acer, by a motherboard manufacturer.
In this case the manufacturer does not supply information.
Acer does.



With the above information you can see;

1) Processor Support.

2) Uses a Socket AM3 processor socket,

[ Look at the list of AMD Phenom II, and Athlon II, processors.
Now look at this chart, {Scroll down},

Now look at the processor socket used for these processors. Scroll the page down, compare using the charts ]

3) The motherboard chipset is an AMD 880G,

Here you see more information on what the motherboard supports.

4) The Ram Memory used is DDR3 Sdram, at either 1066MegaHertz, or 1333MHz.
(That is PC3-8500, and PC3-10600, respectively)

The Maximum TOTAL Amount for the motherboard is 8GB.
There are 4 Ram Memory slots.
The Maximum Amount for EACH one is 2GB.

O/S = Operating System.
Windows XP, and Windows 7, are two examples of an O/S.

With a 32-bit O/S, the maximum amount of Ram Memory that will be recognized, is 3-1/2 GigaByte. (3.5GB)

You have to have a 64-bit O/S for above 3.5 GB.
(8GB? You need a 64-bit O/S)

ALSO, don't just use any Ol' DDR3 ram memory.

I doubt you can go into BIOS Setup, and change the Voltage, and ram timings, for a high-performance ram memory.

In otherwords 'gamer' ram memory.

JEDEC sets a standard for Ram Memory.

One of the standards is the Voltage. Standard default voltage set for your motherboard by JEDEC, for the Ram Memory, is 1.5 Volts. (DC)

MAXIMUM voltage is 1.575

That Acer board is not capable of handling DDR3 high-performance ram memory, that will exceed 1.5 volts.

(Probably isn't a BIOS upgrade either)

What is it that you seek? Post back in a Comment.

Hi i have an acer aspire desktop with just a black screen no bios cpu fan is spinning but really fast

You need to check the RAM memory. For that open back cover of cpu then on motherboard you can see RAM memory reconnect it to motherboard .Pull cmos cell from motherboard for 10 minutes reconnect all connection again inside the cpu.Make sure motherboard it not ground with cabinet cover. Then check.Reconnect PCI card or vga card if any. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.

My original problem of black screen turned out not to be memory sticks, but was motherboard-have new m/board-reading instructions to install-it says I need op cd to install-my acer aspire m5641 desktop...


Welcome to Fixya. The answer to your questions is YES. You need an Operating System CD to and install it on your system. However, if you have the same make and model of the motherboard that has been replaced you dont need to have the Operating System CD. just connect the memory, PSU, Processor, and other components and it will run fine.

If the motherboard make and model is different then you need to have a copy of the Operating System you can check Acer if they can provide it to you or purchase one with Microsoft

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a acer aspire m1640, with the motherboard fails, if i can not fix it, what motherboard, acer apart, can i mount it? thank you

There are a few options you have on this, but if you want to maintain full compatibility with your current hardware, then you must purchase a motherboard that supports DDR2 533/667 MHz SDRAM since that is what comes standard in Acer Aspire M1640 Desktops.
A few options that would be similar to stock motherboard would be:
Foxconn G31MXP-K I7 or Biostar TForce TG31-A7
Those motherboards have similar specs to the stock motherboard and you can take a look at the specs of the Acer Aspire M1640 from this link below:
Both those motherboards I have linked you too are microATX boards, which should fit fine in your case which may be a standard ATX case.
If you are willing to upgrade your ram, then your options open up to any motherboard that supports the Intel Pentium Dual Core processor. Since the stock motherboard also provides onboard video, chances are you don't have a video card plugged into your motherboard (unless you've upgraded that yourself) which means you should also look for a motherboard that provides onboard video so you don't have to purchase a video card.

Good luck!

No Mother board is compatable.
The Motherboard and hard drive are paired and cannothe be replaced.
The best thing to do is to buy a new computer and use the Harddrive as a slave on the new one.

Acer Aspire Mini PC

Hi, you will be able to purchase a mini ATX format board by almost any manufacturer that will fit the acer case, the only problem you may hve is the PCI and Graphics cards will need to be low profile standards but these are also available if you are not planning on gaming then the on board graphics on most new boards will do all you ask of them.
