Hey there, I have an Acer Aspire 7720. I checked in BIOS (v1.25) that only 8MB video memory is avaliable (out of 2GB), and couldn't change the settings. Could you help me solve the problem please?

Dynamically allocated memory is borrowed from the system memory; ie, your GPU is using shared memory. Increasing the allocated VRAM is not going to increase your performance by much simply because this kind of video memory is so slow.

You might want to consider updating your graphics driver and checking your temps to make sure that the GPU isn't overheating.

I change the ram, and then no boot, no video?


Hi there
There are a couple of things here possibly.
Firstly is the new RAM stick exactly the same speed as the old one? If it isn't then this will allow the netbook to appear to run but nothing will get done because the BIOS may not recognise the new memory.
Secondly, it is sometimes necessary to go into the BIOS settings to tell BIOS that the memory has changed and what it has changed to.
The first thing to try is to replace the old RAM and see if this cures the problem. If it does then it confirms that either a setting change is required, the 2Gb RAM is incompatible for some reason, or you may have damaged dislodged something during the upgrade.
Hope this is helpful

NUMERIC KEYPAD NOT SUPPORTED


Might give this a try-right click on your Computer icon-click on Properties-then click on Device Manager. The keyboard is listed there. If it has a yellow exclamation point, or a yellow question mark, then there is a problem. Click on the arrow in front of Keyboards, then right click on the drop down named keyboard. There you can click on update drivers. That should solve the problem.

My acer aspire turns itself of after about 30min of using


Usually,, something like this is caused by a heat problem.
Things that usually heat up in the laptop are:
- the CPU (check the fan, may have to take apart to really clean)
- the Video Card (this may have a fan but usually a heat-sink, also may be dirty and full of dust)
- the RAM (usually nothing much to do here)
- the Hard Drive (this may be the problem but check other things first)

I would check the following forum as they describe how to take it apart for cleaning and also refer to a "build up" of dust in this laptop model.
http://www.avforums.com/forums/laptops-netbooks-tablets/1057228-acer-aspire-7720-turns-off.html

Another thing would be to check the BIOS version and also check at what levels the alerts and actions are set.

Also, when using a laptop - do not cover the fan vents which may be underneath.

Good luck

How can i allocate more memory to video card of acer aspire 5100


You can only do that with onboard video cards. If you have an onboard you can choose how much ram to assign to it in your bios settings. However it is limited and if you already have 128 assigned to it, that's probably about all it's gonna give ya. But hey it never hurts to check Assigning your physical memory to your graphics card will result a shortage of your total system memory and your whole system will slow down a bit.
Video cards meant for better processing the graphical content of your system and free up your system's physical memory.[via]
So, if you buy a new and better video card with more memory you will have a fast system with better performance.

Acer aspire 7720 start up problems


You need to try to isolate the problem. Try connecting an external monitor to your laptop. Press function screen keys. If you have a picture on your external monitor then you have a video problem - most likely an inverter, although you may need a new screen, unlikely but possible.

If you have no picture then you have a system problem. Disconnect the battery and AC adapter. Remove the memory and reseat. Repower your laptop and see what happens.

How to increase the video memory of my laptop


This is done in the BIOS screen. Upon startup of the computer, press the key or key combination the screen tells you to in order to enter the BIOS. Somwhere in there there will be a selection for video memory that you can change. Thanks and please don't forget to give this solution a fixya rating. :c)
