I dont think its possible since video card is built into its motherboard and no other expansion slot is provided to accomodate plug in video card.

How do I find the Acer Aspire ASE 380 UD421A schematic?


Computers are wired like a car. Your "wiring harness" comes with plug ins for upgrades, like a second hard drive. In all likely hood if the computer is running correctly, these plugins are for upgrading purposes.

I have an Acer Aspire 5515 laptop. My computer will turn on but it shows a black screen. I've tried turning it off and back on again. Removing the battery but it hasn't helped. Any suggestions??


Wow this is tuff,
Setting from keyboard, possibly.
Software, not likely.
Video Card, possibly.
LCD Screen, very likey.
But with no screen you options at home are limited.

There is a setting on laptops that allow you to send the video output to an overhead projector and cuts the laptop screen off. However, when you re-boot it usually defaults to the screen.

I betting on a screen failure. You may want to take it to a PC Repair shop. Or, buy one here,

Go down to the second Aspire heading.
The one that starts with Aspire 1200.
Drop down to line 6, then go across to the right, and click on 5515.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are on now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
I would suggest upgrading to Adobe Reader 9 (9.3.4.) though, if this isn't the version on the computer.

After you click you may not see anything happening for up to 30 seconds.
The file is downloading in the background.
Usually it takes a few seconds to see the first page, and additional time to fully download.
Suggest you let the file fully download before looking through it.

This is a SERVICE MANUAL, not a User Manual. Much more detailed, including disassembly procedures.

That means that the video card in your computer does not have hardware acceleration, does not have it turned on, or lacks the proper video drivers to use the hardware acceleration.
Upgrading the video drivers is one thing to try.
Upgrading your DirectX version is a second.

The sims 3


On most laptops there are only 2 things that you can upgrade with ease. The first is the size of the harddrive and the second is the amount of RAM you have in your system.
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot. If SIMS3 is needing a better graphics card or a faster processor you cannot upgrade those to easily. To do those you would actually have to physically take apart the laptop.

Video memory upgrade for an Acer Aspire 5100.


Sorry, but if it has intergrated video as you say then video card is NOT upgradable, simply because it does not have a card (It is intergrated into motherboard). That unit can take up to 4GB of ram 2GBX2 DDR2 PC25300 200pin SODIMM $56.00@ crucial.com. It is able to share an dditional 256mb of memory from system for a total of 512mb memory on video. With a little research u should also be able to upgrade the cpu.
Hope this helps good luck,
Dave
