I have a similar laptop myself (acer aspire 3660wlmi) and my reccomendation would be to upgrade the RAM to the maximum you can (with me thats 2gb) it helps the perfomance a LOT (512mb worked ok but 2gb is much faster)

    you can also adjust your graphics allocation in ATI Catlyst control centre (right click on the dekstop and click the ati option, or double click the icon on your taskbar at the right)

It is not usually possible to upgrade the graphics card on a laptop. as the graphics chips are on the motherboard. and they do not usually have a graphics card slot.

some (quite recent) laptops have a graphics express slot which does allow for them to be upgraded.

most often you find that laptop graphics chips share mem with the main RAM (allocated) this is controlled in the BIOS(Setup) and it may be possible to increase the allocation of memory there,

but I'm sorry to say for most laptops there is no upgrade (flexibility is traded for portability)


the 5002WLMI does not appear to have a grpahics express slot, however you may be able to increase the mem allocation in the BIOS (as it does use allocateable shared memory)

    however you can get USB graphics output, but they would not be as good as the card that is already installed.

Depending what graphics is installed you will need a graphic card which supports dual output which is PCI express x16. Depending how good you need the graphics quality you can pick them up quite cheap. Cheers from Scott and plz vote

Hi. I want to play games on my Acer Aspire SA80 Desktop, but every time I install the game, it says the video card is not supported. I don't know what to do. Please help!

As per Acer this computer model has a Integrated SiS Mirage Graphic onboard card or a seperate
AGP 8x Add-on Card (selected models). It looks like the game you are trying to install requires advanced graphics card.

Please specify the game you are trying to install and also specify if you have a AGP card installed (and what is the make and model of the same).

If you do not have a AGP card installed , we can check the game specification and try to install a AGP card and check with it.
