Question about Computers & Internet
Hi i have bios version r01-c1. I have buy this procesor and i don t know its working.
Go to acers website and install the newest bios. If you did that already, you might have a ram issue. Why do you think it's the processor? What are the symptoms?

Any AMD Proc for an AM2 should work fine.
The BIOS should detect the proc's voltage requirement and set them appropriately.
The bios is a proprietary one for ACER and can't be updated to one allowing you to adjust CPU voltage manually, without voiding your warranty.
If you don't mind risking your warranty (For overclocking purposes) then you can find a BIOS to flash onto your MB from FOXXCON. Which is the Company that makes the board for ACER.
If you don't know how to do a 3rd party flash, you should probably do ALOT of research on it before risking your warranty on such a task.
Hope this helps

I would recommend that you do in fact purchase a new motherboard, it is the heart of your computer and salvaging it from a prebuilt will not work out well for you, usually there is a restriction in the bios only allowing certain hardware to work with it.
As for the size, if you go with a decent case that is specified as ATX, it will work for this motherboard, it may be a micro ATX motherboard but an ATX case from someone such as Lian Li will work for both.
If you want some advice on a good computer build give us a price range, what you are trying to do on the computer, and whether or not you need a monitor, keyboard, or any other periphials.
You can also check out sites like hardforum.com or tomshardware.com they both have very active forums that have specific topics where people can post these requests to get advice from a bunch of different people.
