Graphics upgrade Is it possible to install a graphics board into an Acer L100 PC?......while I am happy with the overall performance it refuses to run many of the new games on the market due to the high demand in graphics.

    Dear Coleslaw424



    Thanx for you response to query.I have upgraded to 2 Gig memory already.It was when I was installing the memory that I noticed this mini PCI slot and was wondering if it was possible to install a graphics board into it but I couldn`t see how you would connect your monitor as the board would be competely encased inside the PC.The PC (Acer L100) is very small about the size of a large book and has Nvidia graphics intergrated into the motherboard I believe.,,,,,,JayTeeDee.

As long as you have a open vga, vga e, or pci slot in your computer you should be able to install a new video card. the Acer website says your motherboard supports up two gigs of ram, I am not sure how much ram you are running but if it is under 1 gig I would consider upgrading that also. as far as a graphics card goes get one that has at least 512 mb of its own ram so it dosent pull from your system ram as I am sure your current on-board card is doing. Another couple of hints are: if you are running Windows Vista you they call for 1 gig ram for optimal performance, also it is very important that you un-install any graphics drivers before you install new ones, and when you install the new card read the instructions completely before you do anything.
hope this helps

How to increase my gaming graphics of aspire L310 desktop


Your computer uses the Integrated Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 3000, which is built into your motherboard. Unfortunately, there are no additional drivers for your computer so performance can not be upgraded, in that sense.

What you can do though is increase the screen resolution (on the desktop and in game settings). This should allow for a sharper, clearer image and a better overall gaming experience

I want to upgrade the graphics card on my acer aspire m3400 but can not locate the card on the motherboard


That's because the video is integrated into the motherboard. This PC supports HDMI... what exactly are you trying to 'upgrade'? If the on-board video is not performing as you want, from what you can see here, you may only need to upgrade RAM on your MB:

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/2010/acer/Aspire/AspireM3400/AspireM3400sp2.shtml

#4 at the bottom of the page:
Shared system memory may be allocated to support integrated graphics, depending on system memory size and other factors. Actual system memory available to the operating system will be reduced by the amount of dedicated and shared system memory utilized by the graphics solution and resources required by the operating environment.

Install new dedicated graphics card - Aspire 5738?


No, It's not. As with most low end laptops it is not possible to upgrade the graphics card. Which is a good thing, as most high end cards make the user believe that a laptop is designed for gaming, and they never are. Gaming kills laptops.

Dear Sir,

Welcome to Fixya Expert zone,

By analyzing your Dell laptop model it comes with inbuilt graphics card.So you cant able to replace your graphics card,and also it is not possible to install another internal graphic card.So solution is you can buy and install external USB graphics card.

I think it helps to resolve your laptop issue.If you have any problem regarding this issue leave a feedback we were happy to assist you.

Have a nice day!

How to stop when i use the scroll bar the page from fluttering


Check to see if you have correct graphics driver installed- if you do its because your processor is slow OR your graphics card sucks. IF you are using an on-board graphics card (built into motherboard) you might consider upgrading it to a add-on graphics card.

How much RAM do you have? anything less than 1GB should be upgraded to atleast 1GB total RAM.

Last you also should run a general clean and remove ad/ware & spy/ware as well as go over start up programs that run in background- minimize the overhead your computer needs to just run to improve overall speed. (less programs running in background)

Acer Aspire Mini PC


Hi, you will be able to purchase a mini ATX format board by almost any manufacturer that will fit the acer case, the only problem you may hve is the PCI and Graphics cards will need to be low profile standards but these are also available if you are not planning on gaming then the on board graphics on most new boards will do all you ask of them.

Graphics problem


You need to take the plunge...Go XPSP2. Many games and drivers have been written/upgraded to work with SP2. Your new driver have been written to work w/ SP2. Your machines overall performance will increase. Since you seem to be a gamer I would recommend increasing the amount of memory. But you definitly need to upgrade to XPSP2. SP2 is everything XP was supposed to be but wasn't ready! Good Luck, Tim
