I was in a similar position, you can only fit certain m/boards into the casing. there isn't much to gain with changing processors. I would advise against it

I want a dual core processor upgrade


You listed this under PC Laptop? It's a Desktop? Have you ever done a CPU upgrade? You are limited to what will work with your machine, Mobo and other components. Your Mobo is, of course, AMD compatible, so if you read the specs: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireX1200/AspireX1200sp2.shtml The AMD Athlon X2 dual-core is best option. Memory is a easy option to increase speed a bit. Remember, with a 32bit OS the most memory it can use is 3.80 GB's More or Less. With a 64bit OS use more. I have done many CPU upgrades, you may not get the Speed/ processing increase you expect. After all, the components work in conjunction with one another. Do your research on Socket type, Pins, Power requirments, etc., etc.Check, Verify, then re-Check and re-Verify. Use this little freeware program to assist you, it list Spec info in detail, SPECCY at: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/.

Can I install a GTX 9800 on an Acer Aspire m1641?


The model number of the mainbaord is usually printed on the mainboard itself. Look between the RAM dimms near the CPU socket.

If that mainboard is PCI-Express then it will be fine. It's PCI-Express if your card fit into the slot and locks into position. If the slot is too small for your card then you know that the board is some-thing else.

Just make sure the Power supply has at least a 6Pin Power connector for that graphics card.

The 6Pin connector plugs into the actual graphics card at the top. Be sure that the power supply is rated at 450Watt +.

Install the lastest drivers from the Nvidia website.

Take care!

Hello there! I wanted to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE T180 Mobo: MCP61M-AM-6A61KE11C-00 I want to upgrade the stock CPU : AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3800+ Into an AMD Anthlon 64X2. Am2+ socket also...


AM2+ mainboard will mean that you will be able to install AM2 and AM3 CPU's. That includes Athlon 64 X2 and Athlon 2 X2 to X4.

My advice would be to look at an Athlon 2 X2 250 3.0GHz CPU at least. It will be able to run on DDR2 or DDR3 RAM, it depends which socket you install it in. AM2+ is DDR2 and AM3 is DDR3.
Try and get an AM3 mainboard if you can it is worth it, ASUS is good. However then you may need new RAM. You may want a new Graphics card as well. Go to a computer store or use the net to look around and learn more about the AMD computer. Computer stores build special gaming computers, very good looking and great performers. It all depends on your budget.

Take care and Happy Gaming!

Please, may you tell to me what is ACER ASPIRE M1641 motherboard name ?


Re: Sata driver - ACER M1641 desktop PC « Reply #8 on: March 28, 2009, 04:26:23 PM » I have discovered the previously unknown model of the motherboard in this system. I have searched and searched and could not find it anywhere. With the actual model of the motherboard you can get supported drivers right from the manufacturer, the same way you could if you purchased a standard motherboard like asus or gigabyte.

I have determined this motherboard (at least my acer a1641-e1712a) is a MICROSTAR board. A link to a board with compatable drivers can be found http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1499&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&cat3_no=2 .


The board is a MSI board using their mainboard search. My criteria went as follows...

Mainboard -> Intel Platform -> Socket 775 Chip -> Nvidia Chipset -> Nvidia MCP73 Chipset

That narrows your down to 8 or so mainboards, all of which use the same sata,audio and onboard video. My above link http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&prod_no=1499&maincat_no=1&cat2_no=170&cat3_no=2 will take you to a board where you can get SATA, AUDIO and VIDEO DRIVERS.


Hope this helps guys!

It is up to 1TB per drive. RAM is totally different and has nothing to do with HDD capacity.

We just need a manual for our m1641 aspire by acer

This was the closest I could find for you. I didn't actually see your exact model. If this doesn't do you any good, the only other bet would be going directly to acer through their tech support or email to have them send one. Most likely it will be an email with the document attached.
