Question about Acer Veriton 5500 PC Desktop
USB sound cards work quite well, will your PC support USB2? I have never seen a pc without a sound card? No PCI slots?
USB sound cards have their own internal workings not needed by the PC so it should work just fine. Now if they could just make a USB video driver card :)

I'm in Australia (Sydney) and I also have an Acer Veriton 5500. The internal workings ARE unusual. As you say, the usual slot for a VGA Card seems to be missing.
One answer is to run the PC on Linux. Linux uses Kernel Drivers to operate the computer and my Acer Veriton plays DVD movies perfectly while running under Puppy Linux 4.2.1 Retro, which is a free 100 MB download available from here:
The fact the PC plays movies with audio and picture working perfectly tells me that there must be audio and VGA capability on the motherboard, which Puppy Linux automatically detects and operates with the appropriate Kernel Drivers.
I'd still like to get Windows XP running properly, but in the meantime at least I can run the PC under Linux. I get the Internet through a wireless broadband USB modem and Puppy Linux can even make the USB modem work.
Good luck with it.
