Acer M5630 installing card and PSU

I bought a eVGA Geforce 9800 GTX+ to put in my M5630, from what I hear I think the card will fit in my box, but I do need some clarification.

Also I'm not too sure of the wattage on the stoc PSU, I know the 9800 needs 500 W.

How do you go about installing a new PSU, or if you could point me in the direction of an appropriate PSU for my machine that'd be great.

The card is PCI-E 2.0, however, PCI-E is backwards compatible with any PCI-E version, so do not worry about this. As far as the card fitting in the case, well that's hard to say. I have the same card, and I measured it for you. Mine is 9 inches long exactly. Yours will be within a half inch of that if not the exact same. So just take a look inside your case and see if there is room for a 9 inch long card in the PCI-E slot. Most likely there will be, only mini cases have troubles with these cards really. For the power supply, dont skimp on brand when it comes to these. You can get a 750-1kw power supply from a cheap company and it wont be worth a darn. I have a 550W Power Supply with an 80%+ Efficiency rating from a respectable company and it works great. The brand I recommend is Corsair, it is going to be a bit expensive, but you'll be worry free. Good luck!

Changing the PSU is one of the simpler things to do.
Unplug the machine and hit the power button to get rid of the extra juice.
Bring it to a table and lay it down on it's right side, left panel facing you. Don't shuffle your feet if you're walking on a carpet, static discharge could fry your hard drive.
Open up the left panel. Take a piece of paper and a pencil to map out the wires connecting from the motherboard to the PSU. Just incase you'd forget.
Now stand it up, unplug everything attached to the PSU and unscrew the PSU from the machine. You can tell which ones they are in the back, it's easy to discern which screws are actually attached to the casing. You'll need one hand to hold the PSU up for the last couple of screws.
Reach inside and pull it out, make sure no cables are still connected.
All you need to do is reverse the process when putting in a new one, easy as pie.
When buying a new PSU, make sure it has TWO 6-pin power connectors for your card.
That card also needs to be docked in a PCI-E 2.0 (it's the blue slot in picture).
I'd also buy a 650W power supply, the bare minimum to run the card is 450W.
You can go to any computer retail outlet and buy the power supply. 650W will probably set you back $140.00-$200.00. a 500W will be considerably cheaper.
Hope this helps, good luck with your system!

If these on the driver's that came with the package then I suggest you download the latest version available at the Nvidia download center here.

Just select the following from the drop-down boxes.
Product Type: GeForce
Product Series: GeForce 400 Series
Product: GeForce GTX 460 SE
Operating System: Your current operating system.
Language: The language that you want the setup to be in.
Then click the search button.
Click download on the next page. Once downloaded, run the setup and it will install the driver. You will need to restart to finish the process.

Video to monitor problems


4 beeps means either a bad video card or bad memory.  Try to take out and reseat the video card and the RAM.  If that doesn't do it try using another video card or RAM.  In my experience, 9 times out of 10, the memory is either bad or dusty and not making contact.
