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 :)

G'day Rudy,
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:

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/puppylinux/puppy-4.2.1retro-k2.6.21.7-seamonkey.iso

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.

Steve

I have an Acer Veriton X275. It has 8 USB ports. My USB wireless mouse/keyboard, printer, and phone charger all work on any one of the 8 ports. A Scan Snap machine will usually get picked up...


Make sure the system has the latest BIOS version from Acer website. Go into the setup utilty and load the system default settings even if you've never changed anything. See if the system responds differently. If it does not, then the problem could be driver related. A good driver update program may have success in finding updated drivers for imbedded devices like USB controllers. There are a few freeware programs available, but the good ones cost money. Hope this helps.

Can i use an external hard drive to run an operating system (XP)


Yes. You can run an OS from an external hard drive. You have to install the OS to the External hard drive and will have to boot from the USB. I have tried that for Fedora Linux OS but not for XP. Basically all Operating systems boots up in the same manner. So definitely, its possible with windows XP also.

Thanks

Hi! I have an Acer Veriton 7600G.The sound card is SIS 7018.Culd someone find me a driver.I have searched but nothing works.I have tried everything.Please Help me !


Since you didn't mention the Operating System installed on the System, I can't make it myself specific. Anyway here are some links where you can download the drivers for Sis 7018.
1. Sis 7018 (rapidshare link) (ipen the link, click "free user", wait for few seconds and then click "Download" button). This is a zip file so you'll need winrar or winzip application to extract the contents. (click here to download winrar)
2. Sis 7018 (Cnet download) open the link and click "download now" button/link.

If the sound card is onboard, use this: 3. Onboard sound driver for Acer Veriton 7600g if in case it's not working use this... ftp://ftp.work.acer-euro.com/desktop/veriton3600g/drivers/audio/audio.zip

If you face any problem doing this, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixaYa.

Changing Onboard Video


Hi Andrew, The manual for Acer Veriton 5600 series is available at the Product User/EndUser Website (Downloads) at http://csd.acer.com.tw. 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.
